Welcome to the Zest it Up Studio…

“Ready to add some zest to your next soirée?”


We are a couple of gals who love bringing people together. With years of experience in the special event world as designers and caterers, we are SO excited to host your next social gathering in our creative space. Whether planning a shower, a corporate event, or you are looking for something different to do with friends and family, the studio is a perfect fit for a unique experience. Let our space be the blank canvas you need to “wow” your guests! Fully furnished with a welcoming entry lounge, polished concrete floors, and picture-perfect watercolored walls dripping with plants, the studio lends itself beautifully to an on-trend vibe. Get ready to roll up the industrial door for a star-studded, fresh air soiree with a chic warehouse feel. When you plan an event with Zest we can help bring your ideas to life- from decor, crafts and games to catering, rentals or gift bags.


The Zest it Up studio is located on the Central Coast in the quaint little town of Atascadero in an old commercial appliance repair shop. With a little paint, creativity and love we have turned our studio into the perfect space to gather. Don’t worry about tables, chairs, space heaters, or the sound system- we got you!


You can’t have a party without fabulous food! All Zest private parties include a variety of cheese, crackers and a charcuterie board complete with bamboo paper goods. Assembled appetizers available at extra cost. Cucumber water & iced tea included, hosts can bring alcoholic beverages for guests to enjoy.
