Yep, we’re named Pomp, but here’s the secret, (shhhhh…don’t tell anyone), you get all the pomp without the circumstance. Are you a super busy momma or couple? Do you envision the perfect party but don’t know how to realize it? Big on dreams but small on creativity? Well, my friend, you’ve come to the right place. Pomp is a vibrant, fresh, visionary company born of passion, quality and creativity. Our mission is to expand the mindset and create shared extraordinary moments by designing events that showcase your individual style and personality. We’ve combed the globe for unique furniture and props you can’t find anywhere else, stamping your event with your very own unique style. The best part, wait for it, you decide how involved you want to be. You don’t have to do a thing except show up as your charming, beautiful self or we can collaborate every step of the way. The design structure is completely up to you.
Make a mean pizza
Tacos! For life.
My mom, of course!
Give me the salt
Tacos, travel, Ryan Gossling... Time to reveal a few of my obsessions. See anything we have in common?
You can pretty much find me in overalls, a well-worn graphic T and my pink converse any day of the week. I spent A LOT of years in the corporate rat race climbing the ladder I thought I was “supposed” to be on. But, there was always this little, calm voice, quietly tapping me on the shoulder whispering, “you were meant for more.” Finally, after 30 years, want to know what I did? It’s pretty radical—I sold all my possessions, bought a used backpack, an airline ticket, and travelled around the world for two years. My goal was to visit every continent and renowned event that existed on the planet. It took me from Ballo Del Doge in Venice (which you must attend in your lifetime, it will blow your mind), to Spain’s running of the bulls, to Rio Carnivale, to Thailand’s Full Moon Party. I came back knowing I wanted to create my own accessible renditions. Life is filled with hardship. We all need a little magic thrown in. From the time my hiking boots hit the Cleveland dirt I knew what I wanted to do. And Pomp was born.

Meet Jillian >
This is Pomp’s secret magic bullet. Jillian puts all of the spice into our secret sauce and after she’s done stirring her unique ideas, you’ve got a perfectly curated event with your personality popping up in the most unexpected, but pleasing places. It’s unusual to find a type A artist but, yes she does exist—thank goodness!! Not only does she come up with her own ideas but seamlessly melds our vision with yours while incorporating all of the big elements like furniture and signature pieces down to the finest detail like china and personal signage to create your one of a kind event.

Meet Henry >
Oh Henry! He’s my adorable, gregarious 4 year old son who comes up with all of those snazzy names that grace our killer inventory. I could NEVER come up with things like “swizzle stick sticky table” if my life depended on it. For that entertainment, you can thank this little dude.
OUR KING OF INVENTORY NAMING
Meet harlan >
Oh Harlan! He’s my adorable, active, 2 year old son whose energy knows no bounds. Neither does his cuteness. Why, oh why, does he have such long eyelashes when mine are 2 millimeters? No fair! Harlan is our little model you’ll see driving his racecars up and down couches, trying out the bounciness of fluffy pillows and hanging out inside our props. He checks out the quality and we do the control.
Meet Pip >
Come to our warehouse and be prepared to be licked head to toe. We hope you’re ok with a little puppy love. Pip came into Pomp’s life three years ago when we found him as a puppy running along some Cleveland railroad tracks. We opened our car door, he jumped in and the rest is history. Want to know the best part of owning your own business? Bringing your dog to work. Hands down, THE BEST!
