MAGICAL does not even begin to describe what a fantastic job Cristin and her team did for our engagement party - I cried when I saw the room because it was THAT beautiful! Every little detail from the flower arrangements to the desserts, to the photos of us, and personalized coasters helped elicit such a connected experience in the room. I felt as though our entire relationship was captured beautifully due to her extreme talent to create a space that reflected our vision! I cannot say enough about her service, her professionalism, her kind heart and the overall process of working with her. If you are considering working with her for one of your parties, do not hesitate! She will truly make your party come to life, us and our guests were blown away!

Yes. She is THAT good. I followed Cristin on Instagram and had seen her work ... in pictures. When I saw what she created for my future daughter-in-law's bridal shower I cried! The dessert table was that special and spectacular. It was BEYOND beautiful!! Our event was held at the Molly Pitcher and even their staff was wowed!! Absolute perfection!

Presentation is everything and wow that's her specialty! Her work sets the mood for the party and her attention to detail is unsurpassed. She is super easy to work with and with a few questions understood what kind of look what I was trying to achieve but even better than what I imagined. Thank you Cristin for creating a day we will all remember FOREVER!

For anyone considering using Cristin for a special event, there is nothing to think about. Just do it! If you are looking to make an event MEMORABLE she's your girl!! xoxo

I absolutely loved having Cristin Kelly design my bridal shower this past June! Everything she did from start to finish was professional, organized and beautiful! There were details that I wasn't even aware of that just stepped it up to the next level and blew me away.

It's almost 2 months later and I am still getting compliments from guests about how amazing everything looked and how great all of the treats tasted! I would highly recommend this business to anyone who is looking to try and remove the stress of planning an event or who wants to make their event be the best it can be. Thanks again Cristin Kelly & team! <3

Wish I could give more stars! Cristin did a phenomenal job on the dessert table for my daughter's 1st birthday. She brought my "Pinterest ideas" to life and kicked them up a notch with her amazing attention to detail. 

Cristin was patient, organized and available to discuss design ideas and budget with me at all hours. I would call myself a "picky" client, but there was not one detail I didn't like. Great job, highly recommend ... can't wait to throw more parties!

Cristin Kelly Design is amazing! I highly recommend her work for small gatherings or large parties. I've used her to plan a bachelorette dinner - she found the venue, finalized the menu, and decorated the table exactly to our vision. It was fun but also so elegant and classy! She finished the night with personalized champagne flutes for each guest to take home.

I've also attended a baby shower planned by Cristin which exceeded every expectation of what a typical baby shower should be. The details overflowed everywhere you looked.  From the games and gift table, to the cookies, and cake pops the event was a cohesive look that WOWed everyone!

Cristin also created a 2nd Birthday party proposal for me. She took one Sesame Street idea and created a vision that was beyond my imagination. She had everything thought out and the ease of being able sit back and let someone else plan all the details is worth every penny! She is professional and a pleasure to work with!  First on my list to call for my next gathering!

 Cristin, I want to thank you for the beautiful baby shower you created for my daughter-in-law Kim! Your attention to detail and creativity is amazing. The dessert table was not only filled with delicious treats but the presentation was spectacular. The flowers, balloons, and various decorations completely transformed my dining room. The guest tables were perfect with your tablecloths and the flowers that you designed and arranged. I am so glad you suggested the ballroom chairs!

I also have to mention the bar set up. The ice tea and sangria jars you set up were perfect along with the clever signs, mason jars, and matching straws. This inviting setting got the party off to a great start. It was perfect for a summer afternoon.

Having Cristin Kelly Design design and set up this shower made me feel like a guest in my own home. Having you order and arrange everything from the decorations, tables and chairs, desserts, made it stress free for me. I also have to mention the set up and break down of everything by you and your staff was done in a professional organized fashion.

It was a beautiful shower thanks to you and your amazing talent. Many of my guests have asked for your card which I gladly passed on to them.

Thank you again and hope to have you back for my next special event. I wish you continued future success.

Thanks to Cristin's detailed planning, exquisite taste and determined execution, my sister's baby shower was the celebration of our dreams. She cried with joy after walking into the space designed by Cristin Kelly Design.  Not only was it beautiful and detailed, but it was also a lot of fun thanks to the activities Cristin planned!  I recommend CKD to anyone looking for someone to help articulate a memorable and thorough celebration.

I met Cristin last year during the Wedding Walk in Red Bank. I knew right away that I wanted to hire her for my daughters Bridal Shower on 6/2/18 at Raven & the Peach. Cristin, with the help of her amazing team, created the most beautiful dessert table! It was the focal point of the room and was the perfect back drop for my “Love is Sweet” theme. 
If you’re looking a dessert table that is elegant, magical and absolutely gorgeous, I highly recommend you contact Cristin. Her attention to detail is exceptional, she is an absolute pleasure to work with and her dessert tables speak for themselves!!

Cristin's work amazed me!!

Her talent far exceeded what I anticipated & helped create an ambiance that guests still talk about to this day!

I hired Cristin Kelly Deign after seeing their amazing work on Facebook.  It was a no-brainer to hire her services to help celebrate my daughter Nora’s 2nd birthday.  Cristin herself presented amazing ideas on how to proceed with games that the children could play, crafts and decorations.  We especially loved the ‘circus’ theme taken to the ‘nth’ degree complete with stuffed giraffes and tigers and complete with Nora’s own ‘ticket booth’.  All ideas were presented within a reasonable budget.  The best part was Cristin and her team members came promptly to set-up and as well to clean-up!  I’d definitely hire Cristin Kelly services again!

Courtney – Oceanport, NJ    { 5 star rating }

 I was referred to Cristin from someone. Thank god I met her she saved my baby shower! I thought it would be easy to do it all myself but I was wrong! Once I started talking to Cristin she put me at ease. She gave me tons of options and worked with me until I was satisfied with the vision I had. Cristin is full of creativity . She is a true artist, that understands colors, shapes, sizes that work together. Not only is she full of creativity but she is a true professional. She is very attentive and responsive, which I loved about her.

I told Cristin what I wanted, I showed her some pictures and she made it happen but even better than I expected! It is very obvious that she is very passionate about her work and you would be a fool not to hire her. She will make your event as special as you imagined it to be. She is creative, professional and the sweetest person ever! Thanks Cristin for making my baby shower so special for my guests and me. You rock! Thank you again for your hard work and dedication!

 Cristin Kelly Design provided beautiful shell shaped cookies that matched my daughter in laws invitations exactly for her Bridal Shower. They were beautifully wrapped with a matching tag and were provided in a lovely basket.  The best part was that the cookies were delicious and my guests were thrilled.  I would highly recommend Cristin as she is very detail oriented and it shows!

 I have had the pleasure of knowing Cristin for a number of years, and without a doubt she is the best at what she does. Cristin planned my dream baby shower. It was so easy working with Cristin. She coordinated all the details of the day, and is incredibly organized which took all the pressure and stress off of me for the day. I could simply sit back and enjoy the most beautiful baby shower. Everything from her dessert table, to name tags, flowers, table décor, and favors were impeccable. All the guests who attended were incredibly impressed and asked who planned my event. I cannot say enough nice things about Cristin, she is extremely committed and trustworthy and is a dream to work with. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to plan an event.
