  • Sarah Bobey, Founder & Creative Director

    Be Envied Entertaining was created by Sarah, a self-taught event stylist, as a online resource to inspire the home chef and enviable host and hostess in all of us. Sarah grew up in a suburb outside of Philadelphia and currently resides in Northeast Ohio with her husband and dog. When she’s not discovering new recipes or sharing a how-to for a stunning centerpiece, she loves traveling with her husband, boating and finding new adventures to stay active.

  • Anne Smith, Director of Marketing & Affiliates

    Anne has always had a passion for entertaining. She joined Be Envied Entertaining in 2012 to share her creativity and inspire the home entertainer. Anne has played an integral role in developing The Marketplace, a tool to connect party planners to trending products and ideas. Her passion for design and her creative flare made her the perfect fit for the Be Envied Entertaining team. When she is not creating new party ideas or marketplace inspiration, she enjoys running, scoping out new restaurants and hotspots in Indy and spending time with her family and friends.
