My name is Tracy Alvarez and I have been in sales most of my life. I have always enjoyed travel, food and throwing parties. I grew up in Holland, Pa which is about 30 minutes outside of Philadelphia. Starting in high school and most of my young adult life, I worked in hotels, bars, and restaurants and loved the camaraderie, energy and fast pace of the service industry. After college, I became a flight attendant for American Airlines which gave me the travel bug and brought me to my second long term hometown, Chicago. Upon the birth of my first daughter, I started working for a small family owned paper company which enabled me to work from home. At this point in my life, my passion stalled and my interests were put on hold. However, after the death of my mother in September, I decided to take a leap of faith and start living my life with passion rather than continuing for another 15 years in a company that sucked the joy out of me. I want to prove to myself and my teenage girls that you can follow your dreams and be successful. I want to be a shining example to them of exactly what I preach so they can enter adulthood with the confidence to do what they truly want to do.
For my first project, I am hosting a 50 and fabulous birthday party. Over the course of a weekend this Spring, friends and family will help her celebrate this milestone which includes a whirlwind trip to Chicago for a rejuvenating visit to a spa, some shopping, an amazing dinner at Quartino followed by a night on the town! For this special event, the colors black, silver and gold have been chosen because they represent glamour and power to the birthday "girl".
