“creator of all things exquisite”

The Exquisite Events team is now decorating over 350 tented and indoor events per season in Rhode Island, Connecticut and Southern Massachusetts area.  Planning and designing parties has been a part of Kelli’s life for as long as she remembers and she considers herself extremely lucky to have been able to turn her true passion for a good party into a highly successful decor company.

Working as the Newport Naval Officer’s Club’s social secretary in the late 1980’s, Kelli first introduced the naval base to formal tented events igniting her interest in the world of tents! Soon after, Kelli opened The Main Event which over the years evolved into Exquisite Events, a full service event coordination and design company where she has partnered with distinguished event coordinator Stasia Anthony. 

Kelli’s passion for event design and tent decoration is unyielding. Clients love to see her eyes light up with excitement as she designs their event.  Kelli’s rare mix of resourcefulness, imagination and style has made this seasoned designer an industry favorite.

“the glue of all things exquisite”

That's Casey in a nutshell! Her professionalism, meticulous ability to cultivate client relationships along with her warm and friendly demeanor have truly fine-tuned the design side of EE.  Casey and Kelli have been working side by side for over ten years and she's perfected the ability to put Kelli's thoughts into words before they come out of her mouth! Our 350 yearly events seamlessly transition from idea to perfection as a direct result of Casey's dedicated work.

Six years later, in 2014, her dedication and passion for her work brought her back into the business as an invaluable member of our sales and design team. Lauren's strong client and vendor relationships are a direct result of her love of the industry and years of networking exposure.

She works side by side with Casey and Lauren, taking our clients conceptions and successfully translating them into reality.

Sarah's healthy, balanced lifestyle even has the office switching over to stand-up desks!
