Personalized Wedding Design and Event Planning
HauteFêtes offers a boutique, full-service event design and planning experience, a journey of fine details that is unique to and inspired by you. We pride ourselves on our smaller clientele, and start the design process from scratch based entirely on your vision, preferences and requirements. From concept to execution and with our signature European sensibility, we work with our select and incredibly talented vendors to create effortlessly sophisticated celebrations – or haute fêtes – that mark the most significant events in your life.
At HauteFêtes, we are inspired by the effortless elegance of European tradition and by our own nostalgia for the colors, textures, aromas and flavors of childhood. The antique and imperfect, the slightly worn, natural materials and a subtle color palette, combined with the heady fragrances of orange blossom, lavender and wild sage, they evoke a mood that is both timeless and fresh. Add to these elements the convivial atmosphere that happens when family and friends get together, and special chemistry is borne as our events come to life. This is what sets our aesthetic apart. This is the essence of haute fêtes.
It’s funny how a 180-degree career switch can pave the way for a dream realized. That’s how it all transpired for Dani Blasena, owner and creative director of HauteFêtes. Dani got her professional start in the fast-paced environment of technology branding and communications when she moved to the U.S. 16 years ago. But, after designing her own dream wedding, she made the decision to step out of the executive track into a more fulfilling creative role. Turning her passion for entertaining and design, which is deeply rooted in her European upbringing, the visual arts and global travels, she launched her own fine event design and planning business, HauteFêtes. Today, Dani lives her dream helping others realize theirs, combining her Fortune 500-honed planning and management background with her infectious enthusiasm and timeless style to create sophisticated fêtes that are each infused with her individual brand of dedication and original European take on event design.
