Q: Where are you located?
A: Baby Showers Inc is located in the Upper East Side of New York City.
Q: Where do you do events?
A: Our events are primarily in New York City however, we will travel anywhere within the tri-state area.
Q: Can we afford your planning services?
A: A good event planner is one that will save you both money and time. Every single one of our clients has told us, with gratitude, how much time, money, and energy they’ve saved by working with us.
We offer guidance in choosing the right fit—vendors, venues, whatever the case—the first time. The price that we provide you for an estimate, or any quotes, is one that we stand by and maintain—we ALWAYS help you stay on budget, or below!
We understand some individuals are unknowledgeable about the costs of each type of service and pride in our jobs of informing and guiding them honestly.
The answer to the above question is: You can’t afford not to hire us!
Q: Do you charge for an initial consultation?
A: No! We are happy to meet with you and discuss your baby shower for the gains of getting to know you as the hostess and the mom-to-be. We are happy to provide an estimate in person, as well. This initial consultation takes about an hour and not only do we get a feel for you and your vision, but you get to know who we are, what we’ve done, and what we can do face-to-face. Afterwards, we email you a written estimate. Regardless of whether or not a client chooses to work with us, we love hearing their ideas for their events for future inspiration, as well as excitement and pure love of our jobs.
Q: Can you give me an estimate over the phone or e-mail me?
A: Normally, this is a no but not a firm no. In the past, when we’ve given an email or phone estimate it isn’t enough information to provide a good, comprehensive estimate. Also, we like to know the personalities of our clients and wish to open up to them as well—it’s so important to really like your event planner. However, if you cannot meet with us in person, we can always work something out! We have used Skype or FaceTime in the past.
Q: What sets you apart from all the other event planners in New York?
A: We pride in being a humble, hardworking company. However, what I, Katherine, think sets us apart is that we are genuinely into you and creating your vision. We won’t spend a lot of time proving how amazing we are or steer you in a direction that might display that. Rather, we take your idea and run with it to ensure we create the event our clients want, for the price they want to pay. Plus, we do it all in a fun, creative way that makes the experience enjoyable.
Our goal is that when you’re reminiscing on your event, you think to yourself, “that was so easy, seamless, and fun.” We want to build a relationship with our clients, so they are comfortable and excited to book all their events with us.
Q: How long have you been in business?
A: Katherine started doing events in 2011 while working at a hedge fund in New York City. Baby Showers Inc was established in 2013.
Q: Will I still have control over my event if you are planning it for me?
A: Of course! We are in business to create your event; we are working for you. Our job is to help you find all the things to realize your vision, plan it, organize it, and work it. You will never, ever lose control.
Q: Will you work with vendors I’ve already found or people I want to work with?
A: Yes! We love meeting new venders and find it exciting. We do not require any client to work with the businesses we know. The hundreds of contacts within the industry that we do have are references we keep for whomever is in need. We are here to offer suggestions, advice, and research on venders.
