Today we’d like to introduce you to Tammie Wilson.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Tammie. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Born and raised in Texas she studied art history and hospitality management at Texas Tech then moved herself and all her talent to Georgia over 20 years ago. Tammie founded the company 15 years ago out of her love of hosting fabulous events in her home! An invitation to a party at her home was the hot ticket, all invited knew that whatever was planned was sure to have the “Wow” factor.
Word spread quickly and Tammie was asked by friends and organizations to plan their events because of her past successes. The word around town was if you needed help with your party or event call Tammie….. you know, “the party girl”! Her passion, perfection and personal touches have been the success of her growing company in a sea of cookie-cutter events. Tammie gets to know her clients on a personal level and then can translate that into an event that is uniquely theirs. When the event is over she has made new friends for a lifetime. A true measure of her success is the number of repeat clients.
Tammie is also involved in volunteering in the community with charities, schools, and organizations lending her skills to many events. She currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and two grown children. When not planning events she spends her time reading, playing tennis, traveling, cooking, entertaining and enjoying a great glass of Chardonnay!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has been fairly smooth, but of course, every business owner faces challenges. I feel each challenge has made us a better company because we have learned from them.
Our biggest challenge over the years has been growth at a fast pace. We have handled it well, but there are also times it has been a bit overwhelming to keep up with the demand. I’m definitely not complaining and know that any challenge that comes our way, we will overcome!
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about The Party Girl Events, LLC – what should we know?
The Party Girl Events, LLC is a full-service event planning company dedicated to creating a flawless, creative, one of a kind event for our clients.
Our experienced staff manages every detail from start to finish and we work with our clients to stay on task, on time and in budget.
We do all types of events, Mitzvah, Weddings, Corporate, and Social Events and are known for our concierge-style service.
I’m so proud of how far we’ve come! We started doing small gatherings in neighborhood clubhouses to now doing events for over 1200 guests. I have such a passion for this business and cannot imagine ever doing anything else.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
First, attention to detail is huge!
Also, knowing what your client/guest needs before they know they need it. It’s amazing when your client is looking around the room in need of something and you are already standing in front of them to hand it over. They love that!! Anticipating the needs of others is an attribute that will set you apart.
In our industry being creative is a must, but what newbies forget is you have to be a skilled business person too. It’s common to have one or the other, but having both skills will ensure your success.
Lastly, reputation! It’s all you have at the end of every event you do. If the client is happy you’ll always have a great reputation and that keeps you in business!!
