"I have always enjoyed planning children’s parties. For my son's Moana themed second birthday I hand painted Kakamora sippy cups and put green icing on Heart of Te Fiti macaroons. I hand stamped dinosaur invitations and cut out dinosaur garland for his first. We have had pirate parties and Winter ONEderland parties and unicorn parties, complete with unicorn shaped pancakes. We have had backyard water slides and sprinkler parties.
I have noticed over the years that it takes a lot of time and effort to make a magical party or experience for your children and sometimes by the time the party or event arrives you are worn out!
Truly magical parties take a lot of planning for a parent who is usually short on time, so I got together with some of my friends and decided to start a party rental company. We do all the prep work, you get to enjoy the fun!"

"Crafts and partying have been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl. My Aunt Mary was my go to person to get creative with. After attending KU and earning a degree in accounting, I moved back and worked in the corporate world. On a visit to see Aunt Mary, we dreamed up Love of Character.

"When I was a little girl, spending the day in the kitchen with my grandma baking up treats was always a favorite part of my childhood.
Fresh out of high school I went to culinary school but ending up working in software sales for 14 years while keeping baking as a side hobby. After COVID hit, my software position was dissolved and that's when Tuffy Rays was born out of my home kitchen in Andover, KS! The name comes from my grandparents and means so much to our family.
I am excited to finally be working in my true passion. I enjoy matching any theme and love to add my own creativity to personalize treats for each party or event even more!!
My cookie decorating kits are a hit at sleepovers.
Let me create picture perfect and delicious cookies, specialty cakes, and pastries for your next event!"
