Taking It To The Nub – Season 2 – Shanika Smith, Event Coordinator, Owner of Lavella’s Parties

This latest episode introduces Shanika Smith – Owner of Lavella’s Parties and Cigar Enthusiast.

Shanika has planned and coordinated events for over 13 years, based in Hampton Roads, Virginia. She has coordinated events from weddings up to 400-600 in attendance, 2018 Pride Festival, celebrity funeral, Décor designer for The Birth of a Nation movie premier in Norfolk, VA, galas, baby showers, you name it. She plan events as how she stands out herself. They do not call her Bow Tie Event Killa for nothing, because she is not your average event coordinator. Some think she’s a fashion designer or a model when they meet her. She makex events or weddings as different, unique, organized and fun. She laikes to say “Trust me nobody wants a non-organized, boring party. Give them an experience they’ll never forget and will love coming back.”

She has a 17 year old son who’s a junior in High School, she loves fashion and is a collector of fedoras. She loves supporting small businesses and giving them their flowers. In her spare time to relax she loves spending time with my love, enjoying a great glass of fine wine or bourbon and enjoying her cigars.
