Plan less. Party more.

Carina brings her passion for realizing her clients’ visions to every single

event, leveraging technology to ensure smarter, cost- and time-saving approaches to all aspects of events for an elevated experience. She founded cb event design in pursuit of alleviating the stress for hosts that often leave them dwelling in the details rather than relishing in the day.

In 2020, Carina became a Pandemic Compliance Advisor and is a tremendous source of guidance on pandemic event planning protocol, assessment of risk, and COVID-19 updates for public gatherings.

When she’s not dreaming up the next big event, she enjoys the company of her husband and pets in their NE DC home. A native of Costa Rica, she also indulges in all the travel she can. And also hosting, anything, anytime!
