Hi Friends! My name is Nikki Lam. I’m a mom, wife, blogger, foodie, exercise nut, and coffee addict! Cooking, baking, arranging flowers, gardening, and decorating! These are my passions, and they offer so much satisfaction and fulfillment to me! When I organize and host a party, I get to play in all my passions simultaneously! During parties I have hosted, friends and family have raved, and they urged me to share my ideas with others! Sooooo…here it goes! I want to share these passions with you, and I hope that I can be your go-to party planner!
In the past…
I trained at the Culinary Business Academy and became a personal chef for many high-profile clients. I also worked for a number of years in the pastry department of Arthur’s Catering, the largest catering company in Central FL. I am so grateful for what I have learned; experiences and opportunities at Arthur’s Catering taught me about large-scale operations of high-end desserts, but also how to integrate these delectable products into elegant parties. After working as a caterer, I owned my own bakery and sold my sweets to local grocery markets.
Why did I start Food, Flowers, and Festivities?
You’ll see my beautiful family below. I wanted to have a flexible schedule while still filling my need to be creative.
First I had Evan
Visit the parties I did for him:
-Legoland 6th Birthday Party (coming soon)
Then I had Wesley
Check out the parties I did for him:
-Christmas 1st Birthday Party (coming soon)
-Winnie the Pooh 3rd Birthday Party Celebration (coming soon)

-Details of the festivities our family has hosted!
-Direct links to the fabulous party supplies!
-My handpicked items that I must have for cooking, baking, parties, and hosting!

Fun Facts about me:
-As a young kid, I preferred to watch cooking shows over cartoons!
-Some friends and family have nicknamed me Martha (haha)!
-My life is full of contradictions. I love to exercise but sometimes come home from the gym to bake!
-Some women have to have fancy purses or nice jewelry. I’d rather have upscale kitchen appliances any day! Viking appliances really do make me swoon.
-I read cook books like novels (and get teased about it)!
-I’m obsessed with pink depression glass because it looks so beautiful on a tablescape.
-I love to garden because the food you grow always tastes better!
-I sometimes hide in the craft room with my Cricut Explore Air 2 if I need some quiet time (you Mamas out there know what I’m talking about, right?). I find the projects on the Cricut machine so satisfying!!
My favorite source of inspiration for parties comes from Pinterest. You can follow me here.
