While she may be best known for planning the weddings of stars like Kevin Bacon and Billy Joel, Blum is an "eventiste" of the highest caliber, thanks to her keen eye for detail, flair, and deep-rooted understanding of what makes an event memorable. We find her ability to identify a signature style for each client (like the pink flowers, at left) is what sets her apart from the rest.
Event She's Proudest Of: There are so many, but two come to mind. The first was an idea of attaching a mini kids carnival to a wedding for a couple who each had younger kids from previous marriages that worked out just as I envisioned it though it had never been done before. The other? Pulling off an a cappella surprise for Billy Joel at his wedding to Katie Lee. He was so blown away that he stayed and sang with them for some time.
Favorite Party Tip: Walk through your event as if you were a guest rather than a host. Begin with pulling up in a car. Where to park? Where is the coat room? How do I find a drink? It's a helpful perspective.
