Creativity Tell All // Heather Balliet from Amorology

Heather Balliet, owner of Amorology, a luxury event coordination and styling company, is such a good story teller. She dreams up and creates events that are so specific to her couples. I always look forward to what she will dream up next. 

How do you continually stay inspired and creative? 
Music greatly inspires me. Turning up the tunes and dancing in the kitchen or singing with my family always stirs something in me. Also, most of my ideas tend to come to me while I'm sleeping or dreaming so a good night's rest can make all the difference.

Is there anything special or unique about your morning routine?
Nothing unusual here! My hubby and I typically get up in the morning, get the older kids off to school, have breakfast together and then jump into a fun day of work. 

If someone wanted to break into your industry, what advice would you give them?
Start with an internship. It offers a valuable amount of experience and education that you are unable to get without the risk of trying to go at it alone.

Did you always know this career path was ‘the one’?
No, I often say that this career found me. It wasn't until after my own wedding that people began approaching me to ask for assistance with their weddings.  It quickly grew into something I knew I was supposed to be doing and a career that I was deeply passionate about.  

What season inspires you most?
I love spring when everything is fresh and new again, and the flowers tend to offer the most variety. It's peony season after all, which is always my favorite.

What is the best advice you have been given?  
Breathe and take a moment to slow down and step away. It helps to put everything into perspective.

What is your dream project?  
Our dream project is to eventually open our own wedding venue. One day!

If there was a song that played every time you worked on your craft, what would it be?
It's so hard to choose just one song. We have a wide love for music as we mentioned before, and are often inspired by all types of songs.

Is there anything in particular you are obsessed with these days?
I am currently reading The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton and loving it.  I'm in a book club which forces me to take the time to read each month and allow myself some down time which can often be hard to come by.  Also, I am currently obsessed with the TV show Happy Endings and always obsessed with ice cream.

What would you do if you had $40,900 for a vacation?  
I would love to go to Sweden and visit the home of my heritage.  I have always wanted to experience Sweden first-hand with my children. I would probably also travel all over Europe for a month experiencing the rich cultures with my family.

Thank you Heather!
