Since 2010, Aaron & Kelly have run numerous types of events as the owners of The Paisley Pumpkin. Kelly has experience in party planning, fundraising events, street fairs, Hot Air Balloon festivals, and boutiques. Her favorite is non-profit fundraising events. *Kelly insists that most of the Paisley Pumpkin events have a charity aspect included.
Every detail matters to Kelly. Having “special touches” and good communication earn her high marks with clients.
