Meet Kiarra Watkins of K.M. Designs Events & More and Marie’s Weddings Planning+Design by K.M.DE&M in Fort Worth

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kiarra Watkins.

Our founder Kiarra started designing stationery and favor items for events in 2015 to make ends meet when she was unexpectedly diagnosed with thyroid disease. During her time of treatment, she realized she had an undeniable and unmatched natural talent for design and décor. In 2016 K.M. Designs Events & More was created; we marketed ourselves using several online platforms such as social media, Etsy, Thumbtack and our website to advertise our work and attract clientele.

We are proud to say we have gained several loyal and repeat clients, several corporate clients and our designs have been featured in event planner’s events across the U.S. 2017 was the start of full-service events in the DFW area; we provide planning, coordination, design and décor; Bartending & Server Services were also added to the company. In 2018 based on the growth of the company we felt it was best for our company to create a separate entity within the company for all things weddings (Marie’s Weddings Planning + Design by K.M. Designs Events & More). We are humble and grateful for the growth and progress of the company thus far!

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The overall growth and progress of the company has been a smooth road because we are able to produce a product or item that will sell, will exceed expectation and will result in future orders. Same as our events we bring a unique yet elegant twist to the décor as well as the ability to ensure our client’s events run smoothly. Our struggles have been knowing our worth and what audience to attract.
