AJB Events is the brainchild and
passion of Anita Belle!
Anita Belle is the founder, owner, and chief creative talent at AJB Events, a New Jersey-based full-service event planning, coordination, and design company that makes special occasions unforgettable. She brings to life imaginative and inventive themed events that are more than celebrations—they are expressions of personality and visions of artistry.
AJB Events specializes in social events, with an expertise in producing teen and child focused events, such as bar/bat mitzvahs, sweet 16 parties, baby naming ceremonies, christenings, proms, graduation parties, themed birthday parties, baby showers, and more. We also offer corporate, business, and networking events, such as grand openings and ribbon cuttings, fundraisers, holiday parties, and employee incentive events.
AJB Events was founded in 2015—sparked by a singular vision to transform simple celebrations into events full of imagination and creative design. Anita believes that special events are more than just life milestones but celebrations of people. And Anita’s passion for people began at an early age. She volunteered with her family at senior centers, assisting with parties and special events.
As she grew and gained more event planning experience, Anita went to college to study engineering. After college, she continued to volunteer with the senior centers, and then moved away from engineering and into the restaurant and hospitality industry. She worked her way up from manager, general manager, and event coordinator over five years—and she realized events and hospitality were her niche. She has planned and produced high-quality events in the restaurant, travel, non-profit, and religious industries for more than 10 years. Anita approaches event planning with the keen precision of a trained engineer and the person-focused style that comes after decades of working with people of all ages. She is a natural born event planner, and her thirst for knowledge keeps her focused on education—grasping industry trends and applying new techniques to continuously make her tailor-made celebrations amazing!
“I am your event whisperer, your magic maker!” Anita says. “I can create something incredible from nothing but an idea, with hard work, knowledge, dedication, experience, and passion. This obsession for excellence is why I am your perfect partner to plan your celebration. I make sure everyone is smiling before, during and after your event… that is my love poured into each celebration!”
Anita is a member of the National Association of Professional Women, and she has served in leadership roles with the New Jersey chapter of the International Live Events Association. In 2018, she was named the Social Event Planner of the Year by International Live Events Association New Jersey chapter. In 2017, she received the Presidents Award and was recognized for the Best International Live Events Association Collaboration by the same organization.
Anita lives in West Orange with her husband and two children. When she is not creating another event, you can find her hanging out with family and friends and watching reality TV.
