Shayda Rohani-Hodgdon likes to party. And by party, we mean design, style and craft the decorative building blocks of a really, really good time.

Available for celebrations, weddings, photo shoots and installations of any and all kinds, Shayda's local service, General Merriment, transforms an unremarkable space into a personalized, festive world of color, texture and flair. She loves nothing more than to brainstorm, problem-solve and carefully curate your personal ideas into a festive reality using fabric and paper to construct garlands, tents, wreaths, and anything else your heart desires. What's more, the beauty she creates for one occasion can be kept and repurposed for years of celebrating to come... a rather sweet notion, isn't it?

General Merriment will be decorating the space of Sandbox Studio with sweet garlands and all manner of cheerful flair. Meet Shayda at the event, or contact her to set up a consultation...
