Founded in 2015, WISH is a full-service party and event design, styling, and planning boutique located on the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast.


From concept to completion, WISH's goal is to curate parties and events that relish, engage, and inspire all of life's celebrations. Specializing in children's birthday parties, baby showers, bridal showers, and all social celebrations, our focus is on customizing parties and events that are unique and tailor-made to the clients wishes.


Our organic approach to the planning process allows WISH to work closely with clients to transform their wishes into a reality. Listening and understanding our client's vision allows us to dream, plan, and create an event that you will be proud of. 



"With a keen eye for detail and a passion for creatingI love to dream of ideas and themes that are unique by design and custom tailored to my client's vision."


My name is April and I am the owner and creative director of WISH BY APRIL LLC.

WISH  was founded and created out of my love and pure joy of creating, designing, and planning my daughter's birthday parties. Seeing her little face light up and capturing her smiles and excitement, I knew I had found my passion!

Inspired by color, prints, patterns, and design, I have always had a flair for creativity. With a keen eye for detail and a passion for creating, I love to dream of ideas and themes that are unique by design and custom tailored to my clients vision.

From concept to completion, my vision has always set me apart from the standard "cookie-cutter" party. I always strive to create a magical yet stylish atmosphere that keeps guests "oohing and ahhing."  My organic approach is created by using custom made props and decor, hand selected printables, and beautifully developed graphics to give each party and event that personal touch that makes these celebrations truly special and memorable.

I look forward to learning more about you and discussing how WISH can make your special event a reality! 



"Words don't seem sufficient to describe all that April did for the 2 parties she organized for both my little girl and my little boy.  I literally did nothing.  She planned every single detail and pulled it all together beautifully.  From an airplane hangar to a mermaid spa party... We don't do parties every year for our children, so the expense in making such magic memories for them on their special day was so worth it!  As a high strung mom of 5, the fact that I was able to enjoy the day with my children, without having to worry or run around trying to remember details... to me, the stress factor was priceless.  I cannot wait to plan another event with April!!!!!"
