About Smash Cake SoCal
Here at Smash Cake, we love to party, encourage & empower mamas, and support local businesses. Our goal is to provide you with fun and creative events that will inspire you, tips and ideas that will help you, and amazing local resources to equip you. This website is meant to be a tool to not only help keep you stress-free as you plan parties and events for your family and friends, but to connect with you the incredible creative community we have here in Southern California. And if your definition of “stress-free event planning” means hiring someone else to do the work, we’re here to help you with that as well! Not from SoCal? That’s ok! Our information applies to you too, and the creatives we feature….they all ship their products!
About Angie & Monika
Once upon a time, we had normal jobs—at the same place. We quickly discovered our mutual love of coffee and cupcakes, and an eternal friendship was born. When you find a bestie, it only makes sense that you would start your families at the same time, so that’s what we did. And as our first babies approached their first birthdays, we realized that, in addition to coffee and cupcakes, we also love throwing parties! So we each started our own individual businesses—Marigold Events and Hello Brielle Designs.
Since then, with over a decade of combine experience, we have led the way in party trends, coordinating numerous events, including weddings, birthday parties, holiday parties, baby and bridal showers, gender reveals, and stylized photo shoots. We have been featured on Inspired By This, Hostess with the Mostess, Kara’s Party Ideas, Catch My Party, Disney Baby blog, and numerous other sites.
I don’t know why we didn’t think of it sooner (mom brain, perhaps?), but we’ve finally realized how fun it would fun to work together again. So we’ve joined forces because, who wouldn’t want to spend their days hanging with their bestie, eating cupcakes and planning parties?
