Welcome! I am Sarina, the creator of Joy in the Commonplace. I’m a party stylist! As a stylist, I meet with clients to create a unique party that they have in mind. I’m in charge of the design and decorating side of the party. My job is to work with the clients ideas to create a unique party theme and color scheme. I create hand made decorations and put together props and backdrops to create a lovely atmosphere. It’s all about the details! Are you looking to plan your party decorating? In my gallery, I share my own parties ideas.

I am not an event planner. An event planner is more of a manager of an event. Event planners understand the clients goals, set budgets, coordinate vendors (florists, cake decorators etc.), handle contracts etc.
