Entertain stylishly with Melissa Chambers
Welcome! Melissa Creates is not just a blog, it’s your resource for entertaining guests. You’ll spot recipes- specifically brunch and sweets, entertaining tips, tablescapes aka pretty table settings and the occasional party DIY.
I am a Florida native that truly loves her state. I graduated from Indian River State College and while working on a degree in hospitality management at The University of Central Florida I landed a dream job in downtown Orlando with the title of business development & marketing rep. In 2010 while working and attending night classes I started this blog to have an outlet to showcase my passion for pretty table displays, sweet recipes and how I prepped our home(s) for guests. My mom always took time to set the table and still enjoys hosting gatherings, I’m thankful she passed down the entertaining gene. In 2012 I was asked to write content for a popular site and by 2013 I was creating original content in partnership with brands. In 2015 I left my marketing career to run Melissa Creates full time and that same year we welcomed our first child. I took a long maternity leave when we welcomed our second child in late 2016 and allowed the abundance of content on Melissa Creates to inspire while I soaked up life as a mother of 2 just 22 months apart. In late 2017 I returned to Melissa Creates full time after taking 9 months off to snuggle our babies.
My husband and I currently reside in Orlando with our handsome boys Lincoln and Sebastian.
