It’s clear to see how South Florida native and founder of Tica Rose Events, Erica Duroseau (who goes by Tica), has an intense passion for styling and design that’s spanned decades. “When I was a little girl I would redesign my bedroom and progressively transform it into exquisite art,” she shares. “In my hands, dinner parties transform from cliché to classy, weddings become an intimate night of dining, dancing and laughter for every couple invited and something as simple as a small birthday dinner blossoms into an unforgettable experience for the guest of honor,” she says. When working with clients, she consults with them on theme and design, along with the nitty-gritty details that are necessary to hold an amazing event on a realistic budget.
