Christina and Tom Craft

What makes an affair amazing and memorable? Since 2006, Ideal Design Events, a boutique event planning and styling company, and Event Rents Florida, a rental company, have been providing devotion, care and drive to its clients above all else. The company started as a home based business run by its creator Christina Craft and her husband Thomas and with these same driving forces, the company has expanded to a full staff, a complete event inventory spanning 10K square feet and a wide array of preferred vendors. All these have come together to make Ideal Design Events the company that it is today. This is where it all begins.

We offer detailed and creative Wedding Planning custom packages designed to tell your story, excite your guests and allow you to dance till dawn. Don’t need assistance planning your wedding but don’t want to execute it yourself? Day of Coordination services are also available. We offer an inventory of must-have wedding and event decor and a variety of creative services including custom designed invitations and stationery and complete event production. We can do provide as much or as little as needed.

Everything was beyond magical and exactly what I had hoped for. You really rocked it! So appreciate all of your help, the amazing extra's you provided, and your ease to work with. Your kindness, responsiveness, and passion for your work never went unnoticed. I will recommend your services to our friends.



Christina, Tom and her team went above and beyond to make the Tampa Gardens Club look absolutely amazing for our reception! They made my blush & gold dreams a reality. Christina also took the stress out of picking several of our vendors. It was the BEST day ever!

Thank you for everything. Your team is seriously amazing. You have wonderful people representing such a great company! The centerpieces and decor were amazing and were everything I ever dreamed they would be! Loraina was amazing. Thank you.



Several people told me unsolicited that this was the best wedding that they have ever attended. It's simplicity turned out to be what made it amazing. I thank you for a wonderful, amazing, unforgettable, unbelievable, incredible night.
