We had the good fortune of connecting with Elizabeth Lopez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Elizabeth, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I am a former first responder; prior to starting my own business I served my community for many years. Following the birth of my first born, I decided to be a stay-at-home mom for the first few years of her life. Understanding the importance of nurturing during the formative years I gave up my career to focus on my now number one priority, my little one. As I transitioned to having her start school, I was exploring my options as to entering the work force again. It was at that time I decided to open my own business, AOS Event Designs and Rentals LLC. Opening my own business afforded me the opportunity to have a flexible work schedule while also caring for my daughter. AOS event designs combined both of my passions, service & creativity! I was truly blessed to have had the opportunity to serve the State of Arizona in my former capacity; However, I could not have asked for a better opportunity than to work while still being able to care for the apple of my eye.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I started my event design & rental business in 2021. My vision is to bring boutique event design services as well as upscale party rentals to Surprise, AZ and the entire west valley.

I am proud to have started this new chapter in my life and I am truly excited to see what is instore!

What sets us apart from the others is our attention to detail, dedication, relentless effort to achieve perfection.

I have always overcome any obstacle set before me through perseverance! NEVER GIVE UP!

Nothing is ever easy! As my mother would say, if it was, then everyone would do it! Do not conform to any situation; if you don’t like something change it! If not then who will?!

The AOS brand represents trustworthiness, realabity, honesty & quality.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would have to say the grand canyon for sure! Our week long adventure would be filled with daily hikes and fine cuisine. I feel simply visiting the grand canyon to takes in the breathtaking views would suffice. No need to add any lavish activities. Simply seeing the magnitude of the canyon would remine anyone how small we are!; and how there has to be a greater being. Subsequently, remanding anyone anything that goes on in daily life can be fixed. He has the whole world in his hands.
