About Us

Life is too short, we celebrate everything! A child’s first birthday, a promotion at work, an intimate dinner party, a couple’s big day…Creative Twist Events wants to turn these moments into cherished memories for our clients and their guests. Specializing in creating experiences and memories, celebrations can be designed in our own private indoor and outdoor space, private homes, venues and outdoor spaces, and now virtual space!

Our Founder

Joanne planned her first party at the age of 8 when she became the party host and organized face painting for her sister’s 3rd birthday at their home in the Dominican Republic. She has been party planning ever since!

After studying design in the Dominican Republic Joanne came stateside. Joanne worked in Manhattan for 13+ years combining visual design and customer service for luxury brands. Joanne had visions of creating amazing experiences and bringing other people’s celebrations to life. Creative Twist was born in 2016.

When she is not planning parties and events, Joanne can be found at home with her family experimenting in the kitchen or enjoying her favorite sweet treat – ice cream!

She believes in joy, being grateful and celebrating everything!
