We had the good fortune of connecting with Crystal Washington-Auzenne and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Crystal, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
With everything that’s going on in the world, bringing families, friends and the communities together to celebrate life, helps us all to focus on things that matter most; perhaps more than ever before. Crystal Clear Events help the community and the world by providing exquisite décor, unique entertainment in a fun environment. We guarantee the adventures will be endless when we organize your event, celebrating those memorable milestones to share with family and friends. There’s nothing like planning for an enchanted wedding to compliment an elegant bridal shower that leads to a treasured baby shower, and in no time the over-the-top characterized 1st birthday, or a sensational sweet sixteen. When jaws drop at the eloquent grand openings, and tears for those quick years; the high school graduate can party like it’s 1999, lol, as we anticipate marking one of the most solemn celebrations, their college graduations! What I do, is more than a business. It’s a calling to let my clients focus on enjoying the moment while we focus on every intricate detail, to make their celebrations big or small, truly unforgettable.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Well Houston, (H-Town) is known for its fabulous food/entertainment & nightlife. 1st spot I take my family & friends when they’re in town is Turkey Leg Hut. They have the best tasting turkey legs I’ve ever had in my life! I’ve been a fan a long time, I started going there when they were on Washington Ave. So I am a super fan lol 2nd spot would be Gringos; my entire family loves Mexican cuisine. I can taste those seafood enchiladas and mouth-watering watermelon margaritas. LOL 3rd Shopping til we drop!!! Baybrook Mall is the spot. It’s my favorite mall in the Houston Area. Indoor/outdoor style, Restaurants and even a Dave & Buster’s for some entertainment and fun! I always take time to play! Life is too short not to enjoy it. 4th Top Golf, for a night of fun and games for kids of all ages! 5th Let’s dance. Bar hopping at its ‘best. There are so many to choose from, we’d bounce all night long! We would end the weekend with a Brunch at Taste Bar Kitchen and immensely enjoy their delectable meals. My favorite is the lamb chops and red velvet waffles! I am a Louisiana Girl that loves living in Houston/Pearland Texas!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to recognize and dedicate my shout-out to my beautiful children and my wonderful husband, they encourage me daily. My kids were one of the reasons I started an event planning business. I love being their Mom. Every year I’d go overboard decorating their parties. I smile when they smile. Those kids mean the world to me and I am setting an example, that they too can do anything they set their mind, and hands to do. My Nanny (grandmother) was also an event/wedding planner. I adore her immensely. She was and will always be my inspiration. Her creativity lives through me. I hope one day to pass the torch to the next generation in our family!
