Our Story

Her constant need for a challenge and intellectual stimulation is why she has become the financial wizard of PtTe - Lisa can make any budget work.

Lisa has organized the full gamut of functions from bridal showers to international getaways. Her outgoing personality ensures a personal and proactive approach to her events. In fact, Lisa is so gregarious that she is a celebrity in her own right, having been featured on the Bethenny Show.

Ruth is your archetypal Artist-Scientist, which has made her the creative goddess of PtTe. Graduating in Science, she works as a cancer researcher for a non-profit organization and dabbles as an amateur artist to satisfy her creative side. Her boundless curiosity and intuitive improvisation has found her orchestrating extravagant events essentially as a one-woman-show, chanting the mantra "anything is possible" - she finds solutions in unexpected ways.

From event design to catering and hosting, the array of experience Ruth has under her belt includes engagement photo shoots, holiday luncheons, baby showers, fundraisers, corporate open-days and exhibitions for all the important people in her life.

Established in 2013, Paint the Town Events, LLC is a New York-based boutique event planning company, founded by a core team of three fun-loving friends, who share a passion for creation. Designing and orchestrating events for friends, families, respective employers and ourselves came naturally, because we simply love a good bash. Pooling our talent and enthusiasm to plan events for others was the next logical step. So, as we found ourselves congregating to celebrate our fabulous friendships over cocktails at a typical New York City brunch, Paint the Town Events was conceived.

​Our mission is to design a unique life experience, whether a large affair or a small gathering, that is tailored to each client's personal style.  We are true believers that your party should be a reflection of you; therefore we are committed to creating the event that will tell your story and excite your guests. Nothing is IMPOSSIBLE! #LifeCelebrated
