Sage McRae

Founder & Creative Director

I'll help you design a fun & unforgettable party!

Avoid boring & forgettable --

let's design a party that celebrates

YOUR style and who

matters most in your life!

Congratulations! You're planning a party!
Oh no, are you CONFUSED, not sure how to describe your STYLE? 
I have a plan to help! Through my organized and personalized approach, we will clarify what you like and do not like.
I don't want you to feel OVERWHELMED by DESIGN OPTIONS you've seen from other people -- they're not YOU and your party should be unique!
Not only will we clarify your style, but we will design your celebration to impress your guests and thrill you to pieces when you see it come to life!
Don't end up with a forgettable, cookie-cutter event, or try DIY and end up with a blah mess & a ball of stress. Your event should be fun, memorable, and focused on you!
The event will be unforgettable because the design will focus on WHAT and WHO matters most to you! 
Through truly listening to you, and by my special ways of gauging your tastes and dislikes, I will learn what is important to you. With this understanding, we will design the look of your event to impress your guests and to meet your needs.
What does an EVENT DESIGNER do, you ask?
Similar to an interior designer  (but for events), I manage your event's aesthetic plans. I am here to ensure all of your event's visual elements work for your goals, theme, budget, and definitely wow your guests! Either with you or with your planner, let's make it fun!
So, why pick me? I have a plan & a process.
Trust my decades of design skills, pulling inspiration from travels and studies to create a unique event for each of my hundreds of clients. I am passionate about design and attentive to guests' comfort. I'm here to guide you with celebrations and milestone gatherings that allow for honest connection and meaningful memories. You'll enjoy the planning process (yes, that's possible...) and will be fully present at your event.
If you don't know how to define your style, or how to tell mom that country kitsch ain't your jam, CONTACT ME -- I'll guide you from design confusion to a personalized and memorable party! 

(No shade about country style; to each her own!) 


Short answer: YES!

Longer answer: Yes, I am thrilled to help you with all kinds of events! Look below for examples of event types. Let's make it fun, memorable, and gorgeous!

A note: As a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community, I am committed to not only furthering equal rights for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, but also to holding true to my training as a Certified Inclusive Professional (which I received from Equally Wed Pro). The creatives and artisans with whom I work are and must remain similarly committed to honoring the diversity and inclusion of all others. We do so without respect to age, gender identity or expression, nationality or resident status, sexual orientation, political affiliation, physical or mental ability, health status, or any protected status.


An exception? Sage McRae Event Design does not tolerate intolerance, be it racism, homophobia, ageism, or other systemic means of classifying people into castes. Science rules. Black Lives Matter!

Design a party that celebrates YOUR style and who matters most in your life!


Your event will be designed with YOUR style and tastes. The entire process is a collaboration and you'll love seeing the end result! (If you don't, I'll just crawl in a hole. No, really, how could you not love your event?!)

Finer print: you will have an opportunity to edit the design prior to signing your approval. Sage and the team will supply visuals, samples, and/or sketches, depending on your overall design and item availability.
