If you’re like me, hosting a holiday party is an overwhelming and anxiety-ridden thought! What do I do first? How much food should I have on hand? How do I best entertain the littlest guests but who often require the most attention? Luckily for all of us, a business like The Panacea Collective exists. Started by co-founders Lisa Hickey and Autumn Rich, the duo have spent their entire careers throwing parties around the globe. The Panacea Collective is a 360-degree event production and experiential marketing firm with an expansive boutique furniture rental, environmental styling and staging operation in-house. I first met Lisa when we started the planning process for Current Conference. A mama herself and seeing the demand for an event for working and creative mothers, The Panacea Collective immediately jumped on board as our Design Partner and outfitted everything you see below. It was incredible! The talent, the kindness and the honesty (Lisa spoke on a panel and had the audience on the edge of their seats sharing her experience of building a business while growing a family), left us inspired and wanting more.
