What We Do
Hi Everyone! I'm Cristin Kelly and ever since I was very young I’ve always been drawn to all things that shimmer and shine so naturally my first job after graduating college was working as a Buyer for Saks Fifth Avenue. One of the perks of the job was being invited to lavish events, countless runway shows, and over-the-top launch parties. I was always enamored with the level of creativity, thoughtfulness, and attention to detail that went into bringing these events to life. After years of leaving these parties inspired, I knew I found my true calling in Event Design. Today I am living my dream as an Event Designer and I’m loving every minute of it!
I absolutely love dreaming up gorgeous designs & encompassing unexpected details to reflect the uniqueness of each of my client’s tastes. My experience, creativity, passion, and professionalism combine to provide a truly unique design perspective for each event. Taking your vision and bringing it to life is my specialty and I never fail on delivering a truly memorable experience through attention to detail and flawless execution.
I pride myself on my innovation and exceptional styling which enables me to provide the finest of details for clients and guests. From custom décor and beautiful linens to gorgeous draping and lighting, I can make all of your visions a reality. My designs encompass not only a sophisticated sense of style but also a creativity that makes each event incomparable and unforgettable.
I get so much joy out of making my clients happy. After all, my job is simply to enhance an already memorable event. I truly believe in the motto “doing what you love is where happiness lives” and I am so incredibly lucky to do what I love as an Event Designer.
In addition to my love of design and event decor, I also love spending time with my family and friends, traveling to warm places with clear blue waters, binge-watching “Fixer Upper,” brunches and a good glass of champagne.

Yes. She is THAT good. I followed Cristin on Instagram and had seen her work ... in pictures. When I saw what she created for my future daughter-in-law's bridal shower I cried! The dessert table was that special and spectacular. It was BEYOND beautiful!! Our event was held at the Molly Pitcher and even their staff was wowed!! Absolute perfection! Presentation is everything and wow that's her specialty! Her work sets the mood for the party and her attention to detail is unsurpassed. She is super easy to work with and with a few questions understood what kind of look what I was trying to achieve but even better than what I imagined. Thank you Cristin for creating a day we will all remember FOREVER! For anyone considering using Cristin for a special event, there is nothing to think about. Just do it! If you are looking to make an event MEMORABLE she's your girl!! xoxo
Wish I could give more stars! Cristin did a phenomenal job on the dessert table for my daughter's 1st birthday. She brought my "Pinterest ideas" to life and kicked them up a notch with her amazing attention to detail. Cristin was patient, organized and available to discuss design ideas and budget with me at all hours. I would call myself a "picky" client, but there was not one detail I didn't like. Great job, highly recommend ... can't wait to throw more parties!
Cristin Kelly Design is amazing! I highly recommend her work for small gatherings or large parties. I've used her to plan a bachelorette dinner - she found the venue, finalized the menu, and decorated the table exactly to our vision. It was fun but also so elegant and classy! She finished the night with personalized champagne flutes for each guest to take home. I've also attended a baby shower planned by Cristin which exceeded every expectation of what a typical baby shower should be. The details overflowed everywhere you looked. From the games and gift table, to the cookies, and cake pops the event was a cohesive look that WOWed everyone! Cristin also created a 2nd Birthday party proposal for me. She took one Sesame Street idea and created a vision that was beyond my imagination. She had everything thought out and the ease of being able sit back and let someone else plan all the details is worth every penny! She is professional and a pleasure to work with! First on my list to call for my next gathering!
Cristin, I want to thank you for the beautiful baby shower you created for my daughter-in-law Kim! Your attention to detail and creativity is amazing. The dessert table was not only filled with delicious treats but the presentation was spectacular. The flowers, balloons, and various decorations completely transformed my dining room. The guest tables were perfect with your tablecloths and the flowers that you designed and arranged. I am so glad you suggested the ballroom chairs! I also have to mention the bar set up. The ice tea and sangria jars you set up were perfect along with the clever signs, mason jars, and matching straws. This inviting setting got the party off to a great start. It was perfect for a summer afternoon. Having Cristin Kelly Design design and set up this shower made me feel like a guest in my own home. Having you order and arrange everything from the decorations, tables and chairs, desserts, made it stress free for me. I also have to mention the set up and break down of everything by you and your staff was done in a professional organized fashion. It was a beautiful shower thanks to you and your amazing talent. Many of my guests have asked for your card which I gladly passed on to them. Thank you again and hope to have you back for my next special event. I wish you continued future success.
Thanks to Cristin's detailed planning, exquisite taste and determined execution, my sister's baby shower was the celebration of our dreams. She cried with joy after walking into the space designed by Cristin Kelly Design. Not only was it beautiful and detailed, but it was also a lot of fun thanks to the activities Cristin planned! I recommend CKD to anyone looking for someone to help articulate a memorable and thorough celebration.
I was referred to Cristin from someone. Thank god I met her she saved my baby shower! I thought it would be easy to do it all myself but I was wrong! Once I started talking to Cristin she put me at ease. She gave me tons of options and worked with me until I was satisfied with the vision I had. Cristin is full of creativity . She is a true artist, that understands colors, shapes, sizes that work together. Not only is she full of creativity but she is a true professional. She is very attentive and responsive, which I loved about her. I told Cristin what I wanted, I showed her some pictures and she made it happen but even better than I expected! It is very obvious that she is very passionate about her work and you would be a fool not to hire her. She will make your event as special as you imagined it to be. She is creative, professional and the sweetest person ever! Thanks Cristin for making my baby shower so special for my guests and me. You rock! Thank you again for your hard work and dedication!
