A fabulous fete FOUNDER
Hey! I’m Lauren, the creator, hand letterer and stylist behind all of the content that lives on AFF. My space here focuses not only on entertaining and celebrating every moment you can, but also my love for lettering + creating wedding stationery, decorating my home, behind the scenes of running my business and downtime in between.
Born in Southern California, I have spent my journey after high school focusing on my creative endeavors while changing paths SEVERAL times along the way. I graduated from FIDM with a degree in Fashion Design and dedicated 6 of my post-college years to a corporate eyewear and apparel company. During this time I was inspired to start this blog (spending your days in a grey cubicle will do that to creatives!). After launching A Fabulous Fete in 2009, it remained a hobby and place to share things that inspired me. I filled my extra time with creating handmade products for my etsy shop, trying to start a 'party in a box' site and finally, giving wedding planning a shot. While none of those careers ever held my interest, blogging and lettering were what continually kept me inspired. So, in 2012, I quit my "day job" and jumped into the blogging world + hand lettering profession full time.
Currently, I run several divisions of AFF from hand lettering to content creation to our latest project, The Creative Library, with the help of my team. When i’m not at the office, you will find me somewhere by the beach, or in Palm Springs, with a glass of prosecco, lounging in my backyard with my husband and dogs, or picking out the perfect bouquet of blooms at one of my favorite flower stands.
