Daily Inspiration: Meet Jasmina Menkovic and Mirela Karic

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jasmina Menkovic and Mirela Karic. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Jasmina’s background is in business management/finance and Mirela’s is in the legal field. Their decade long friendship inspired them to join forces and follow their true passion for event planning and holiday decor.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Starting a business is always scary and nerve-wracking. We took a leap of faith and worked really hard to get to where we’re at today. The most difficult part was putting yourself out there and being humble through the process of growth. We’ve definitely made some mistakes along the way but learned so much from each of those to become better business owners.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
We are an event planning business and focus mainly on corporate events, private events and specialize in holiday decor. Between the months of September-December, we’re completely booked for holiday decor. Decorating for the holidays is more than just adding ornaments to the tree for us.

We offer stress-free holiday decor for a simple or extravagant display in your home or place of business. This luxury service books out a year in advance therefore we recommend clients reach out as soon as possible; even if it’s January.

What do you like and dislike about the city?
We love St. Louis. There is so much to do for everyone. It is a great place to raise a family, start a business and grow your career.
