Hi there, I'm Melody.
I'm an event stylist who specializes in dessert table design.
I help party throwers create a magical experience for their guests.
I offer dessert display rentals, installations and tablescape styling.
I partner with bakers to curate beautiful and creatively-styled
dessert tables for intimate celebrations.
I believe that styling is an art form that
has the power to enhance an experience.
My design aesthetic is feminine, elegant yet playful.
With my dessert table design service, my approach is always thoughtful. From the moment we begin our conversation, I seek to understand how I can help make your party special and what look and feel you want the dessert table to have. I take your vision and customize a table design that is a fun expression of you. My attention to detail always shines through from procuring the perfectly paired displays to the stylized touches that deliver the charm.
I am a nurturer- it’s my most innate quality and it will show up when we work together. I am most fulfilled when people feel taken care of and supported. What lights me up is the connection I make with my clients and the opportunity to design a statement piece for their party that contributes to a memorable experience.
THE GAL BEHIND MELODY'S JOY
Melody's Joy is a play on my first and middle name. It's also an intersection of pursuits that make me truly happy...
My own journey began by selling vintage home provisions, influenced by my love for entertaining and creating beautiful spaces. I appreciate elements of vintage blended with modern and fresh concepts. I currently source vintage tableware from all over the country and sell at select locations around Austin. Selling tableware led to the outgrowth of my dessert display collection and now my dessert table design service that I uniquely offer.
I'm frequently asked if I'm a musician and ironically I'm not, but I did marry one! (does that count?) I do keep a small shaker in my car at all times for those impromptu car dance parties- I think you know exactly what I'm talking about!
When I'm not searching for or styling pretty things, you can find me working as a nurse, traveling, enjoying local music with my husband, snuggling with our chocolate lab or cycling with friends.
