Event Planner in Washington, DC
01. PARTY SERVICES
We call our full-service event planning package our “start-to-finish” package. This process is divided into three sections: event planning, event design, and day-of event coordination. We have found these three elements are integral to creating a memorable, elevated, and seamless party experience.
- Consultation call
- Creating a budget
- Vendor recommendations
- Booking all vendors
- Contract guidance
- Contract negotiation
- Creating a timeline
- Creating a floor plan
- Creating a custom vision for your event
- Brainstorming custom ideas
- Selecting invitations
- Creating a design board outlining all details
- Selecting all rentals
- Shopping for supplies on your behalf
- Prepping all supplies for the event
- Event planner on-site
- Event assistants on-site (not all planners offer this!)
- Overseeing set-up of the event
- Managing all vendor questions
- Dealing with unforeseen hiccups
- Distribution of final payments
- Packing your car with all gifts and supplies
02. WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
There are many event planners in the area, but what makes us different?
First, we are not a one-woman-show: we have a whole team of trained planners ready to make your dream event come to life! Two, or in our case, three minds are better than one.
Second, we are not only trained event planners, we are trained event designers—they are not the same. An event designer, like ourselves, is going to think about a cohesive vision and how to design an elevated guest experience using colors, florals, linens, menu, and so much more (versus just focusing on logistics).
Third, we have a lot of experience. Our owner, Madison, has been in the industry for five years and worked as a vendor first. This means that we understand how to work with our vendors in a professional, kind way, creating a great product for our clients.
03. VENDORS YOU'LL LOVE
From cakes, to tents, to miniature chairs, we have hand-selected the best vendors in town to make your party a reality. Seven princesses? Done. Disco lounge tent by the pool? Done. A four-tiered mermaid cake? We have you covered.

05. WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
“Madison Avenue Events was easy and FUN to work with, made our party seamless and perfect, and left the guests and their parents thrilled. As a parent of four little kids who has tried to pull off many parties on my own, I’ve never had so much fun at my own child’s birthday celebration.” -Ashley K.
"Working with Madison Avenue Events was a dream come true. It was the first time working with a party planner and she was efficient, communicative, and the night of my party I didn't have to worry about a thing. They're highly recommended." -Dejeune H.
