Prep Party Design in Country Village!

PREP logo Life is all about the celebration. Party planning isn't just about the decorations, venue or food, it's about the shared experience and the memories that are created when we gather with loved ones.

Since their grand opening in August 2013, they've made it their goal to help remove the stress and anxiety that often takes away from the celebration. They want the venue to look beautiful, the decorations to be on point and the food to be delicious. But as important as those elements are, they see them as just a few of their tools to help emphasize the ultimate purpose of a party: THE PEOPLE!

Simply put, they like to party! They exist to help create more smiles, laughs, and memories that come with any event they are privileged to be a part of.
