Making Dreams Come True
Fun and forward. Simple and elegant. Ms. Ippolito’s artistic approach to her party design has been applauded by both her peers and numerous clients throughout the years.
With a background in set design, selling art to restaurants and a family based millinery and interior design business; Judy has enjoyed being an independent contractor for many of the event companies and floral houses in Chicago.
Working out of her home before it was fashionable to do so – Ippolito started to design wedding flowers, and was able to offer the “high end” look for a very reasonable price. No matter what project or business adventure she was involved in; if a wedding came her way – she was “IN.”
Her many years of experience cements her reputation for making the customer feel relaxed and taken care of in every detail of their event.
Corporate parties that she designed; produced and co-produced include MTV, Bacardi, Trek Bicycles, Pepsi, Francesca’s, The Green Tie Ball, BP Oil and The Kentucky Derby Corporate Events. Through her work for the Arlington Million annual extravaganza, Ippolito was also commissioned to create the “Sue” banners for The Field Museum’s historic opening “SUE” event.
Throughout the years of party design, flowers were always the main attraction. “Flowers are Mother Nature’s artwork,” she says, and she is happy to hold the brush!”
“Kristine and I completely customize each event with details that are far and above the expectations of our customers.” It is often the “extras” the girls put into each party that complete the happy surprise of a beautiful and original outcome.
