About Us

Welcome to my happy place ~

I have always enjoyed having my house full of family and friends enjoying seasonal foods and tasty beverages. It is very important to me that everyone feel welcome and cared for during their visits. Every time someone dropped by, I would go out of my way pouring a bottle of wine that I knew they loved or whipping up that special unique appetizer. Often extending invitations to take a look at my gardens where I grow so many beautiful flowers and herbs; or planning a seaside glamping experience with themed linens and glassware. I’ve always believed that love is most definitely in the details!

Who moved my Cheese? & If You Give A Moose A Muffin are the stories of my life…

Taking on leadership roles in philanthropy and joining many non-profit boards has made me appreciate all the beautiful blessings in my life. Elevated Gatherings was born from my need to share food experiences with all of our needs to be together again. From elegant grab & go boxes to full 8-foot grazing tables, gift baskets, wooden boards, and private classes; each is curated with the recipient in mind and completely custom. It is a creative process that I simply love.
I hope to bring an elevated style to a fun day or evening with your friends and family, so you can see the beauty in gathering and welcoming everyone into your homes again!
