Today we’d like to introduce you to Cerella R.
Hi Cerella, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
I’m Cece, and hospitality runs in my blood. I was born and raised in New Orleans, And My mother owned a bed and breakfast where I worked alongside her for 5 years. I’ve also worked in a 5-star restaurant as a hostess and have always seemed to find myself in a service position. Once my husband and I purchased our own home, we immediately began entertaining friends and family and always seemed to have a houseguest staying with us. I tapped into my roots and decided if we were going to have a house full of people consistently, then I would host them in style. Eleven years later, we are still hosting regularly, and I have perfected the art of Hostess Love. Over the years, I have carefully cultivated a collection of resources that have enabled my clients and me to level up and consistently deliver unforgettable experiences for family and friends. I decided to make hostess boxes easier for busy hostesses to have 5-star experiences in their homes. And I’m ready to do the same for you.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Some of the struggles have been establishing the business while working full-time and balancing family life.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about what you do?
I’m proud of curating a gift box that engages all five senses. Each box is carefully curated to deliver a five-star experience made for home entertaining. Each gift box can be used as a hostess gift or a gift to celebrate any occasion. Thank you gift. Birthday gift etc.
Can you talk to us about how you think about risk?
Yes, I’m a risk-taker. Usually, the higher the risk matches the potential of the award if you are successful. I would instead take a chance than not try at all and have regrets.
