Hi, there! I’m, Jeni Founder of dearjeni. I’m a designer, stylist and entrepreneur. I am also a Mommy to my little girl who keeps me on my toes daily and she inspires a lot of my creativity. My husband who is also a great sport who goes along with the flow with all my passions and idiosyncrasies. His favorite line is “ I will never be bored!” Between my family and great group of friends encouraging me it’s has been a quite an experience in these last couple of years. I am feel blessed and my Faith keeps me grounded in this exciting journey.

Before founding dearjeni, I operated and owned a nail and day spa. I studied at FIT in both fine art and fashion illustration,but I’ve always had a passion for parties, – party decor in particular and paying attention to close details. I love throwing events ,  planning them, thinking about them, attending them, and offering advice to others on how to have their own.

My Grandmother and both Mom and Dad have incredible cooking & entertaining talent. You could probably say that it runs in our family.

There is nothing better than creating some eye candy to feast your eyes during that special day.

The Idea for DEARJENI

The year I was pregnant with my baby girl in 2011, I realized that I had to make my baby shower just nothing short of fabulous. I happily jumped at the chance to design and get all the ideas together with my Mom. It also distracted me from my high-risk pregnancy so that was a definite plus!

The shower was a epic success with lots of friends and family asking me all about the details. I started getting lots of questions from guests that wanted to know where I bought such-­‐and-­‐such, how I came up with the ideas for centerpieces, décor, where to get dessert recipes,etc. Now that I was a SAHM I started thinking how I would launch a business that I could help others plan an event as I did. I love things that give that extra WOW effect. Anything glittery, or with added sparkle and add Pink and more pink! Besides what doesn’t look better with some bling?!?


The meaning behind the name dear jeni is because I am so versatile in many different loves. I get many inquires on different subjects that I have passion for. Art, décor staging, crafting, event etiquette, interior design, dessert, food art, and my latest is theming lunches with bento boxes .   This blog is where I will share recipes, tutorials/DIYs, inspiration for party ideas, my own styled events/DOC services, real parties ‘in a box’ created by dear jeni, upcylced shabby chic furniture rentals, cake and dessert stand rentals for hire. I love all things vintage, organic, distressed, pink and pretty. Photography & flowers are another obsession of mine along with cooking and baking and creating!

Thank you for joining me here . If you would like to inquire on any of my services or have any fabulous recipes, tips, parties, or DIYs to share I’d love to hear from you. To contact me, please email dearjeniC@gmail.com I hope to keep inspiring you! <3
