Jess Rugo is an event designer and the face behind Events That Sparkle. She has always had a love for all things that sparkle, even at a young age. In middle school and beyond Jess drove her mother crazy by decorating her bedroom with a new theme every few months. Planning her wedding and decorating a new home was what motivated her to start taking on event styling jobs professionally.
Creating dazzling tablescapes is her specialty, however Jess' distinct touch adds magic to any event from a child's birthday to a celebratory shower to an intimate dinner party for close friends. Her impeccable attention to detail and creative flair sets her work apart, resulting in designs that take your breath away and make your special event an unforgettable occasion.
Jess’ work has been featured in Occasions Online Magazine, HWTM, Pizzazzerie, Spoonful, Catch My Party, and many other sites around the web.
When Jess Rugo is not creating Events That Sparkle, she is working as a school counselor. She is also a licensed real estate agent and certified home stager- truly a Jill of many trades! She lives in the Boston area with her daughter, Laila, and husband, John, who is her carpenter, her spare pair of hands, and the love of her sparkly life.
