Hey, there! OMG… I’m so super excited! It’s November 9th, (aka my BIRTHDAY) and the launch of my new blog! Now, you can get all NOV NEWS emailed directly to you and please be sure to follow along on social media. Thank you so much for simply your time in reading this!
I’m Christina, mama (as you might have seen) and founder-creative director of NOV by Christina, lifestyle + entertaining (stylish party goods + creative design firm.) Born in Kentucky, but raised in Cincinnati, all things Midwest in lifestyle + entertaining were major in my family. As a young girl, my sisters (Karis and Andrea) and I, would help my mom plan, decorate, and host social gatherings which explains the natural “hostess” in me. In the summers we actually had a fake “magazine business” in our basement and over the summers we would mock the then famous TV series, Living Single, as bossy career women, which shows where the business side of me started. From baby and bridal showers to weddings, my family celebrated in style by creating intimate events (including weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and more!)
I’m blessed with two amazing boys who you’ll see often with me on TV or social media. They are my heart! They keep me extremely busy! And, as a young, single mother of two boys, my days begin extremely early and usually end very late at night. Then, there is NOV, which sometimes never ends. NOV by Christina is truly my third child.
As the creative director I specialize in designing innovative and upscale custom events and entertaining concepts, allowing for maximum fulfillment of even the most complex function requirements in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area. I earned a Bachelor’s in English Literature from the University of Cincinnati, and a Master’s in Business Administration with a focus in Hospitality in 2016. My client portfolio list includes Shutterfly (Tiny Prints + Wedding Paper Divas,) Fox19 Morning Show, Cincinnati Magazine, Koyal Wholesale, and CRATED®, just to name a few.
What’s great about my journey is that I’ve had incredible experiences. This shows in the way I’ve developed my brand and identified a signature clientele. The NOV client is smart, authentic, and trendy. She values quality, she is strong in their mindset, and is relentless in her pursuit of what she wants. AND, she knows what’s up in the fashion + entertainment world and wants to translate that to what’s going on in her life, specifically events. That’s where NOV comes in! That’s where my gift and my passion comes in!
