How We Met: Kim & Nat

Kim and Natalie here! We wanted to take you back to the beginning and tell you a little bit about how we met.

We both grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. Natalie was a dancer and Kim was a theatre kid. So we've basically been artsy since birth. As young children, both of us developed a passion for parties. As we grew up, we began to realize that we had a special talent, but couldn’t quite put our finger on what it was.. In the spring of 2019 we found ourselves both working at the magical place where it all began...

Red Butte Garden. A beautiful botanical garden and arboretum that… you guessed it… hosts events! Weddings, holiday parties, concerts, memorials, corporate events and more! Natalie has been working at Red Butte on the event team since May 2016 and Kim joined in April of 2019. Working a million weddings and corporate events together helped us grow really close. We had a blast and found out that we had a lot of things in common! We both love the event industry, crafting, and thrifting (we LIVE for a good deal).

We started talking about our hopes and dreams for the future and realized that we had similar things in mind. One day, in August, we were working a super fun outdoor event with a taco truck (Natalie's favorite) and the idea of Life is a Party was born! Back then we had a totally different name in mind and had no idea where things would go. We have evolved a lot in the last five months and are so excited to see where this journey takes us.

Life is a Party has big things in store for all of you!
