Our job is to provide amazing and enjoyable experiences for the event attendees and make our clients proud that they hired our team!


Conversation and communication is such an important and underrated step in the process of event planning. This is the “get to know you” part, kind of like dating. We ask a lot of questions about you and the event. You ask a lot of questions about us and about our experience. We want to make sure our skill set matches your needs. If we’re not the one for you, we will direct you to someone who is, we have an extensive vendor family. 


So, great! It seems like we’re a good match. Now, we move to the proposal stage, where we discuss the required needs, services, and our fee. It is important that we first determine a general event budget – we don’t want to propose a grand gala if you really want a hoedown. If the pricing and services offered are acceptable, we move to the contract phase.


This sounds scarier than it is. The contract describes the expectations for both the client and Cordial & Craft.


This is the fun part! We take your objectives and our creativity and put together a concept. Once the concept is approved, we move forward to the planning phase.


Now it comes down to the nitty-gritty details: timelines, production schedules, run of shows, contingency plans, and vendor management. 


This is the day that everything comes together.


We worry about the details, you entertain the guests and enjoy the evening. When the event is over, you go home and take off your shoes. We ditch our shoes and stay behind to make sure everything is cleaned up.
