We are not your standard event planner.

 Rock Paper Scissors Events is most similar to an interior designer for your event.  Going far beyond centerpieces, we use all kinds of objects, props, lighting, rentals, and yes flowers, to create warm, inviting events with special attention to surprise and delight moments that your guests will rave about. We understand that the event must live beyond the three hours guests are actually there, and the only way for that to happen is to create activations and installations that they can’t help but take a photo with and tell their colleague about. Getting a guest to use your hashtag requires building community, something that they want to be associated with. We are experts at creating events that are photo worthy and build that community that will have your guests hashtagging all day long.

For those who like to know that they are in good company, we are proud to have created events for Google, YouTube, Rebecca Minkoff, Savannah Guthrie, Rachel Zoe, Essie, NBC, Minted, Univision, Dove, Suave, Unilever, Dickies, Slate, Lonza Biotech, Arthur and Gabrielle Sulzberger, and the Food Network. We are frequent collaborators to top PR agencies and would love to partner with you to bring your client’s brand to life.


Buzzing along several years after starting the company in January 2010, our team and our offerings have expanded, but we remain a boutique company and only take on a limited number of events to ensure a high-touch service and very happy clients.  Experts in quick event lead times, we can calmly organize a last minute without sacrificing good design. We have offices in San Diego and New York City to directly service Southern California and the Tri-state area, and are happy to travel. Our bicoastal office set-up makes us the perfect choice for events with the client on one coast and the event on the other.
