ALYSON

FOUNDER

May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.

Psalm 20:4. 

 

Hi! My name is Alyson and I am the founder of Amaze + Graze. After losing my job to the pandemic in 2020, I was presented with a lot of free time that I used to focus on finishing grad school earlier than originally planned. My MBA concentration required me to take two event planning courses and I loved it so much that I actually looked forward to doing the homework for it. My passion for creating charcuterie boards started with a Sunday cheese board tradition and my obsession of decorating for the holidays. 2020 had a rise in the trend of charcuterie boards but I didn't notice as many custom themed boards. So, in December that year I decided to go all out with making not just a charcuterie board, but a big charcuterie table themed for the Christmas season. It was a huge success and I knew I found my passion once I started planning even bigger and better charcuterie tables in my head that same day. The people who really know me, know that I thrive on doing things for other people. My charcuterie tables were originally planned to just make my family and friends happy until I started receiving messages over social media asking if I was going to start a business for it. I knew that in the future I wanted to follow in my mom and dad's footsteps of owning a business, but I didn't think that it would be when I'm just 25 years old. However, I realized that you should always aim high and take chances. I am super excited to be starting this business, where I am doing something I love that also makes others happy! I would not be here without all of your support; so from the bottom of my heart, thank you. 

Fun facts: I love sports, reading, the beach, traveling and being active.

JULIA

ASSISTANT & OWNER OF JULES SWEET TREATS

Hi! My name is Julia and I am the founder of Jules Sweet Treats! My love for baking began at a young age and as I grew, my desire to learn more grew with me. What started as just making peanut butter cookies with my Mom in the kitchen soon became my favorite activity. After high school I started working in various restaurants and bakeries, and I quickly realized what I wanted to spend my life doing. Baking is my passion, and I couldn't imagine spending my time doing anything else. Alyson and I met the day before Kindergarten in 2001 and our friendship has been going strong ever since then. A collaboration between the two of us was not only inevitable, but such a perfect idea! Her attention to detail and desire to put together the perfect events goes hand in hand with my passion to provide excellent desserts. We are beyond excited to put our two interests together and work side by side!

Fun facts: I love music, cats, traveling, the beach and paddleboarding.
