About Me

Erin Marie Hobbs, Owner


“Custom! It’s the only way I know how to be!”

Just a little about myself. I graduated from Johnson & Wales University in Charleston, SC in 2001 with an Associates in Culinary Arts. Upon moving back to the Charlotte area in 2002, I took the position of Executive Caterer for a research firm for almost 5 years before moving into catering sales at a large hotel in South Charlotte. I worked my way up the ranks there for nearly 9 years when I decided to start Event Revelry Design in early 2014. I’ve worked almost all positions in the kitchen, to the front of the house & event management. I have a true passion for the event industry, which is why I decided to start ERD.

I love customizing and producing unique events. My top priority for clients is to make them feel special and create an event that reflects them. I am personally involved in all the details and finishing touches that make each event perfect. It’s not always easy, but seeing the quality in the finished product makes it all worth it!

I’m constantly working on building my inventory and creating custom event furniture and products, and have amassed several hundred pieces of glassware & décor. Custom event furniture can be made to order, or be available for rent.

I married my best friend on the top of a mountain in Tennessee in February 2007. Together Bryan and I live in Clover and are working on building our dream home and workshop. When we are not creating custom events, we can be found traveling, visiting new venues, breweries, or wineries!
