About Chelsea

About Chelsea

Chelsea Baker is the founder, creative director, and principal planner of Block Party Event Co.. She hails from Cincinnati, Ohio and has a degree in visual arts. Her path to event planning hasn’t been a linear one— it began with a high school job delivering wedding cakes for a local bakery, wove itself through backpacking and teaching in South America, winding into a dream job at an art museum creating exhibitions for children, and eventually landing in Canada serving as the right-hand woman for a high-end wedding planner in the capital city. After moving back to Cincinnati in 2018, entrepreneurship came calling and Block Party Event Co. was born.

Wedding planning has allowed Chelsea to flex her natural abilities as an artist, as a planner, and occasionally as a therapist. When she’s not busy throwing killer parties, she enjoys baking, watching trashy reality TV, camping, and fostering dogs with her husband Dan and their mutts Penny and Otis.
