Figs from Thistles: First Fig by Edna St. Vincent Millay
My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—
It gives a lovely light!
Fancy Figs is based in the beautiful midcoast town of Brunswick, Maine. Established in 2016, Fancy Figs specializes in on-site coordination and planning support for Maine weddings and celebrations.
The company's founder, Kathleen Pacella, is a New England native with two decades of professional experience in event planning, catering, and hospitality. From a very young age, Kathleen knew that she loved doing two things: hosting fabulous parties and being extraordinarily organized. Thanks to a lifelong love of travel, she was inspired to seek employment in the weird and wonderful world of hospitality at a young age, where this skill set was quickly identified as a natural fit for event planning. Eighteen years and many hundreds of wonderful events later, Fancy Figs was established.
Our guiding principals include: being present in every moment, honoring equality, fostering gratitude, working with integrity, celebrating creativity, caring for the environment, and choosing happiness.
