"Petite Social has styled a number of our company’s events. Katie’s artistic eye, impeccable taste, and attention to even the most minor detail set her apart from other event planners. From the whimsical to the sophisticated and everything in between, Katie always seems to know just the right vibe to bring to an event. Katie’s professionalism always shines through, and she is truly a pleasure to work with. We’ve been thrilled with her work and would hire her in a heartbeat for any business event. (In fact, my husband was so impressed by her work that he hired her to style an upcoming birthday party!)" - Meredith W. - Co-Founder of Capital City Mamas

"As a locally-owned clothing boutique, we were looking for a way to make our company's events stand out in the area's crowded retail environment.  Petite Social's beautiful and creative displays and décor brought our events to a new level by impressing our regular customers and catching the attention of new ones.  Katie is reliable, professional, and a delight to collaborate  with!  She has a knack for turning ideas into gorgeous reality, and our company looks forward to continuing its relationship with Petite Social." - Katie N., PR & Events Coordinator, Urban Chic Boutique

"Petite Social styled my daughter's sixth birthday party. We hired Katie because her reputation was impeccable and we wanted things to go as smoothly as possible. We had some ideas of what we wanted and left it in the creative hands of Petite Social to build upon and execute. Not only did I not have to worry about a thing the day of the party, but it was one of the most beautiful events I had ever seen. Looking forward to years of Petite Social parties!" - Tracy M., Client, Alexandria, VA

"We hired Petite Social several times in the past few years to style promotional events for our company, Capital City Mamas.  Each time, Katie has brought creative genius, style, and distinctive talent to raise the bar and make the events spectacular and memorable. Katie is incredibly professional, and ads the invaluable skill of understanding how to incorporate social media to drive the promotion of events to the extract the maximum value. I treasure the working and personal relationship we have developed, and I proudly recommend Katie to everyone I know." - Sharon C., Founder, LIV Strategies and formerly Co-Founder of Capital City Mamas

"I saw Petite Social's work on another site and I flipped for the aesthetics. I was launching a new online children's boutique and needed someone to style a scene for the homepage of my new website.  Katie has great vision and really took charge of my project from start to finish even though she lives many thousands of miles away from me . She was so professional and really understood my vision. I was so pleased with results and would definitely hire Katie again for future projects."  - Michelle F., Owner, Bellini Baby and The Bean's Closet

"I was at a promotional event at the Mosaic District in Fairfax and was making small talk with several industry bloggers about kids' parties. They both asked if I had heard about Petite Social & I said of course and that I had met Katie a couple of times.  Both ladies raved about Petite Social's work.  Katie has such a great talent, fabulous reputation, and a lot to be proud of!" Micaela W., Founder,

"For a full-time working mother, Petite Social is a dream come true. Katie took away the stress of all the smallest detail planning and created a beautiful personal and classy first birthday for my son. She was wonderful to work with and we will definitely use her for many future parties to come!" Mary A., Client, Potomac, MD
