Hello Beautiful!

I’m Amber Velvet (Yes! That’s my middle name).  I am so happy you stopped by! 

For 28 years, I have counted it an honor and a blessing to be chosen by clients throughout the Metro Detroit area to style

the events of their dreams.  Although The Velvet Touch Events launched in 2001, I have had the pleasure of styling

beautiful events since my undergrad days in college. 

In a few words, I am a fun-loving, Type A, floral scissor toting creative who enthusiastically uses both sides of my brain.

A proud native Detroiter and 70s baby, I was raised by two parents who believed in hard work, education and following your dreams.  At the age of 12, I loved math and science as well as working with my hands, so I set my sights on a career in Engineering.  With my parents support and encouragement, I attended every engineering program in the Detroit area throughout middle and high school.  This led to a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering, a Masters in Manufacturing Engineering and a professional certification in Program Management.  Although I have a love for engineering and program management, my other true loves are floral and styling events.  I get an overwhelming sense of accomplishment when

our client’s eyes light up when they enter a room we’ve designed.  It is one of the main reasons why I love what I do!  Making people happy is everything to me.

 

Above all, I am a lover of God, a proud wife and mother of 3 who constantly encourage and support my creative side.  I am convinced that chocolate heals all wounds, I fall asleep to the soothing sounds of HGTV, Project Runway gives me LIFE, I am The Spray Paint QUEEN, I LOVE a candle lit room, I adore anything velvet and I believe, with all my heart, that the only place fluorescent lighting should be allowed is in a garage.  Although my favorite color is black, I have a secret obsession with green.  I am also a wanna-be interior designer who may need to seek help for the amount of time and money I spend at Home Goods and Hobby Lobby.  I believe in being unapologetically true to myself, setting trends instead of following them and styling events that have never been seen before.
