About Us

Hello and welcome to Festively, an online marketplace for party essentials!

We created Festively to make it easier to find what you need to have a great party, and enjoy more of the love and connection we feel when we get together.

Together we have more than 30 years of experience in event planning. We love the planning process of creating an event & adding special touches and embellishments. 

We are also passionate about the environment and feel there is a better way to balance business growth with sustainable practices.

That’s why we’re proud that Festively is founded on the principles of reusing, sharing, and features small businesses who are trying to make a better living for themselves and their families. We encourage you to borrow and rent from each other, maybe gain a little extra income, and put stuff to more use.

We appreciate you exploring our website and getting to know us better. This is our passion and we want it to be a Festive experience for you at every click.

Our Team

Dreaming big and taking names

Hi, I am Patty Flores, CEO of Festively.

I’m a Los Angelino who loves the city, exploring new places, and living life to the fullest. I’m the wife to a huge sports fan and the mom of two boys, one lovely step daughter, a black lab & foster kittens. I love a busy home & they inspire me every day.

I’ve always loved to host parties and create special touches like fun invites, tablescapes and custom banners (I heart my cricut!) When I was little I would make the biggest mess cutting up paper crafts and decorating the table for dinner.

I was inspired to launch this company based on the needs I’ve had in my personal and professional life to pull together trusted vendors for events time and time again, and wanting to share my favorite partners I work with. I especially want to bring more visibility to event professionals of color.

My background is in communications and marketing, working for fortune 100 companies in various management positions. I have a bachelors degree in Environmental Studies from UC Santa Barbara.

Thank you for being part of the Festively family….¡Salud!

Patty Flores,

CEO, Festively

Hi, I am Iris Hosea, President of Festively.

I love a great party and believe there are two key elements to every party, the essentials and the esthetics. I especially look forward to the esthetics, those special embellishments & personal touches.

I’ve been planning events all my life starting with house parties when I was younger. My background is in communications/ public relations with more than 15 years in the industry. I’ve worked for Fortune 100 companies planning community events, media events and celebrations of all kinds big and small.

I graduated from Cal State Dominguez Hills and recently started a MBA program, but took a break in exchange for real world experience to join Patty in launching Festively.

I live a party every day at home with a husband and two boys in elementary school. I am thankful for my life and find ways to show gratitude everyday.

I appreciate you exploring Festively and getting to know us better!

Iris Hosea

President, Festively
