Pricing For My Event Decorations (Part 1)

Several people have asked me to make a video about pricing. In this video, I discuss my thought process of updating my pricing (my pricing strategy) and I start to get into the details of my balloon and backdrop pricing.

There’s so much to say when it comes to pricing. I couldn’t fit it all in one video. Please leave any specific questions in the comments. I’ll make a part 2 to this video to address those questions.

I want to encourage you to take some time to identify your target client, develop your brand, and create pricing that’s in line with your personal design style. Your pricing is a reflection of your business.

    This video is so helpful to me! I have a question about draping. You said you charge per square foot, so if you are doing a single layer backdrop that is 10ftx10ft would you charge $1,000 for the backdrop? I’m not sure if I understood that part correctly. Thanks!

    Great information…thank you!

  12. Jasmine Zepeda on April 24, 2021 at 4:23 pm

    This video was great! I loved how you actually went into detail with “real” numbers. So many other videos I’ve seen on pricing they all say “it all depends” rather than giving a realistic number on pricing. Thank you so much!

  13. Shah-Dazzle D'signz on April 24, 2021 at 4:23 pm

    This is what I needed to regroup several areas of my business. I always lose at the end trying to help everyone but that’s over. Thank so much for this video!

  16. Rhonda Brown on April 24, 2021 at 4:26 pm

    This was a Great Video/Tutorial and Thank you for sharing, The part I struggled with is how much I’m going to pay myself and hr, Another discovery that I think will help me is to divide the inventory’s cost by 1/2 and charge that, I will also add in delivery and I will do packaging. i do like that I’m grateful for this video, Just tired of the "Pricing Struggle" I know that I am good at what I do, I’m detailed and have my own inventory, Looking for to Part II of this Video/tutorial. Blessings. oh by the way you do everything yourself? Not even 1 or 2 Staff?

    I am in awe. You truly BROKE IT DOWN. I needed this so badly as someone just emerging in the event decor business and not understanding my worth. You encouraged me and informed me in this video and I wish we lived near each other because I would love to be mentored by you. Thank you for this video.

  39. K Austin on April 24, 2021 at 4:54 pm

    Thank you again! Awesome tips that are helping me create a plan for business. You should do teaching/mentor coaching for event planners 😃 My follow up question would be how do you overcome objections on pricing for your balloons. Do you just know they may not be your target client and move on?

  40. Elizabeth Quinn on April 24, 2021 at 4:57 pm

    This was a blessing from God I needed this so bad now I am going to watch again. Thank you
