​"The Experience"

With a natural zest for life, Kendall is our go-to source for all things party related.  Her charismatic personality will keep you excited, energetic and ready to tackle every detail with a smile from ear to ear!

We believe that every celebration becomes a sweet piece in the cake of life!  Growing up in a large family in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago with two brothers and twenty eight first cousins there were plenty of celebrations to keep our lives sweet.  As sisters, we've had twenty+ years to figure each other out & we pride ourselves on teamwork, love & creating an event that will be truly memorable!


Life's too short to not enjoy your cake, so kick up your heels, let down your hair, grab your camera and let us make this, one sweet celebration!

Creative Director

"The Design"

With a degree in Interior Design, she has the innate ability to turn a blank venue space into a masterpiece.  Clients love her quirky sense of humor and unflappable calm under any sign of pressure!

At Let Them Eat Cake Events, not only are we respectful of your budget, we'll break it down and map out a strategic way for you to get the event you want on the budget you have.  As a boutique company, we never take on a multitude of clients at the same time; we believe in quality over quantity and give each of our clients the one-on-one attention they deserve.  


Your celebration is as important to us as it is to you and we feel honored to be apart of it.  It is this mentality we take to every detail letting no stone go untouched.  Most of all, your event is a day to celebrate!  As your planners, it is our job to take the organization, stress, and tedious little details off your shoulders and remind you to have fun & enjoy!
