These best friends turned business partners are celebrating a decade of event planning together with a fabulous fête you won’t want to miss.

Details2Decor is an event planning business that will soon celebrate 10 years.

Cincy Chic: Tell us more about Details2Decor!
Starr Hamilton and Ethel Bonner, Owners of Details2Decor: With the collaboration of Decor Plus, LLC & Starr Treatment, LLC, we invite you to witness special events and design at its best presented as Details2Decor. We are a full-service event planning company creating corporate and social events that empower, entertain, and educate. Our services include event planning and management, floral design, and event design. We have a client base across the Tri-State area where our services have included weddings, conferences/expos, luncheons, award galas, and much more.

Cincy Chic: What inspired you to launch this business?
Hamilton and Bonner: The two of us met in 2008 while planning a fabulous birthday celebration for a friend. We had a great time working together and the relationship just clicked. We quickly discovered shared passions and goals for our businesses and wanted to find a way to support and inspire each other to take our businesses to the next level. So we decided, “Why not bring our passions together?” Details2Decor was born out of this idea and now Starr manages the details while Ethel creates the decor.

Cincy Chic: You’re celebrating 10 years! Can you tell us more about that?
Hamilton and Bonner: We are so proud to be turning 10 and are ready to “Takeover!” It is an exciting accomplishment for our event planning company and in honor of this milestone, a special evening is planned. The Anniversary 10 Takeover themed Celebration will be held on Friday, July 13, 2018, 6:00 pm–12:00 am at the newly renovated Prvlgd Lounge, across from Duke Energy Convention Center. Edet Wettee, owner of Prvlgd Lounge will also be celebrating 2 years in business so we are honored to partner with him and celebrate together.

Cincy Chic: What do you have planned for the event?
Hamimlton and Bonner: Guests can enjoy an evening with a pre-concert DJ/happy hour on the main floor 6:00 – 8:30 pm; or a special VIP reception in the upper loft 6:00 – 8:30 pm; then a special concert as Details2Decor welcomes National Contemporary R&B Recording Artist, Vivian Green to the stage at 9pm; and closing out the evening with an After Party. Vivian Green has a mature, sultry voice and knowledge of material that allowed her to sing in some of Philadelphia’s premiere jazz clubs starting from a young age in Philadelphia. Additionally, Green sang background for renown soul singer/actress Jill Scott. General Admission Happy Hour tickets are $30 and VIP Reception tickets are $40. Guests can receive a discount of $5 on tickets if purchased online by July 13, 12:00 pm at www.d2dtakeover10.eventbrite.com. VIP Reception tickets will include discount cash bar, The Elevation Band, complimentary light appetizers and dessert bar, door prizes, access to Vivian Green concert, and an After Party/Meet & Greet pass. The pass will allow guests to meet Vivian Green and producer Kwame Holland. In line with our mission, a portion of the proceeds will also benefit three non-profit organizations who are doing amazing work in our community: Keyz2Life (empowering), Elementz (entertaining), and the Cincinnati Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority (educating). We know we could not have made this milestone without all the support from our many clients and partners, including Cincy Chic, throughout the years. We can’t wait to thank them and toast to what’s next for D2D.

Cincy Chic: Is there anything new on the horizon for Details2Decor?
Hamilton and Bonner: To continue our anniversary celebration, we are excited to host a Phenomenally Woman Empowerment Luncheon in October. The luncheon will feature special guest panelists who are game changers; unique networking/workshops; and special entertainment. Be sure to follow us for further details coming soon!
