Carats & Confetti



our story

We built Carats and Confetti Events out of the idea that, as planners, we are able to alleviate the stress and frustration with planning any event. We handle the scheduling, logistics, vendors, paperwork, emails, and anything else that may be a burden, leaving you to actually enjoy the experience.


Karly Anderson



Principal planner | creative director | owner

A born planner with an eye for detail, Karly brings a natural ease to all of her events. With her professional interior design training and a decade of planning events in Napa County, Sonoma County, and the Bay Area; she flawlessly executes and designs dream days. With exceptional time management skills, problem solving abilities, and unique cost saving ideas she will ensure that your event is not only beautiful, but also falls within your budget. Karly takes the time to get to know each of her clients and is passionate about helping them tell their story. 

When Karly isn't planning events you can find her spending time with her husband, three kids, and Doberman puppies—most likely with a cup of coffee (or glass of wine) in hand.


Licia Prader



principal planner | owner

Licia, a Northern California native, spent many years as the general manager for an upscale retailer in both Napa and Sonoma Counties. There she was often in charge of the planning for corporate functions and company wide retreats, thus igniting her passion for event planning. Her ability to transform what was just an idea, or wish, makes her an imperative guide through the planning process. She is passionate about creating events, and memories, that will bring joy to her clients for years to come. 

When Licia is not hard at work on an event, you can find her planning her next trip, or adventure, with her husband and three kids.
