"She did it all from a distance!"

I hired Ellen to help me plan my wife’s 50th birthday party.  She was great!  We held it at the local country club.  Ellen worked with the club to make sure the food, bar service, cake, and all the details were just right.  We had a great party.  My wife was very happy.  Here is the coolest thing about it.  Ellen lives in Oxford, Mississippi and we live in New Hampshire. She did it all from a distance.  Imagine what she can do in person!  Well done Ellen.

“Ellen is your girl.”

If you are looking for a "go to" event person, Ellen is your girl. From weddings, to tailgate gatherings, to small intimate dinner parties, Ellen has the vision and the capability to make every event perfect. 

She was the event coordinator for my oldest daughter's wedding in Nashville, TN. She literally handled everything so that all we had to do was show up and celebrate. She also assisted in my middle daughter's engagement party, and she will be the "day of" coordinator on her wedding day in February. 

Whatever job a person needs done, no matter how big or how small, Ellen can get the job done. 

Oxford is very fortunate to have Ellen Thomas Event Design. I look forward to working with Ellen and her team on all our future entertaining endeavors.
