Tidy & Timeless | KonMari-ing Your Next Event

September 5, 2019

You’ve probably heard of Marie Kondo, or KonMari, at this point since she’s become a Netflix sensation with her latest series “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo“. Before that, though, she wrote an inspiring book called The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, which led the Japanese author and professional organizer to have her bestseller published in more than 30 countries!

The KonMari method can be simplified to this: You gather all of your belongings, separating them by category, and then decide what “sparks joy” for you personally in each category. If it sparks joy, it stays and needs a home, and if it doesn’t, you thank it and get rid of it!

Now, this method is traditionally applied to the home — your clothes, your books and papers, and miscellaneous other items that are cluttering your closets, shelves, and drawers. But why not a wedding? Why not a birthday party? At Overeasy Events, we believe that it’s our job to help you focus on those aspects of your celebration that “spark joy” as Marie Kondo would say. What are the components of your unique event that are most important to you?

Here are a few ways Overeasy Events can help you KonMari your next event!

Give us a call to learn more.

  • Let’s break down your celebration into manageable categories. Sometimes it’s tricky to know where to start when you’re planning an event, especially a large one! There are vendors to be contracted and communicated with, space to rent and stage, and the list of details to take care of seems like it multiplies every time you look at it! Our team at Overeasy Events will help you to think of your event planning in terms of categories like Vendors, Event Decor/Design, and Day-Of Logistics. We can even create an “a la carte” proposal for you based on your specific needs and desires throughout the process.
  • Have you created a budget? We can help you decide what the most important aspects of your event are so that it’s easier to decide where to spend your hard-earned dollars! If florals are the most important thing to you, you may want to allocate more of your budget there or maybe gourmet catering is what you’ve been dreaming of for years…either way, we’re here to help navigate that process.
  • When you think about your big event, which aspect brings you the most joy? We want to make sure that you’re involved in tasks and decisions that are meaningful and inspiring to you, but that we can take some of the stress out of the planning process by tackling tasks that certainly don’t spark joy.
