About Me

IMG_1868Hello my name is Valencia Cheatham. I live in New Orleans. I am married to the most wonderful man,  Alden Cheatham Sr. We have the most amazing son, Alden Jr.

How did I become an event planner?

We were in the process of planning Jr.’s first birthday party. We were so excited. We started planning when he made 6 months. His favorite show at the time was Sesame Street. Elmo, of course, was his favorite. We decided to do a Sunny Day themed Sesame Street party. We enjoyed making every detail in the party. We created his invitations and all the paper products that went along with the party theme. The invitations were a hit with everyone who received them. They were different and simple. They weren’t your typical Sesame Street invitations. Also, We created all of the party favors. We also came up with all the design concepts. We had a picture background and played games. We did a candy table and made all the food. We were exhausted to say the least. However, two great things came from his birthday party: Aj was happy, and we became event planners. We got two event planning and invitation jobs just from his party. We have been on the roll, and we don’t plan on stopping. So basically, we became event planners, completely by accident. What a wonderful accident?
