The Azalea Bunch Audrey Zahares
Audrey knows style! Audrey Zahares, owner and president of Azalea Events, brings over 20 years of experience in food presentation, event coordination, catering, and customer service to the banquet table. After creating a successful marketing business in Boston, Audrey sold her company to pursue her true passions: food and entertaining. She opened a catering business, the Kennebunk Company, and was able to parlay that into her restaurant,
Le Pli Café, in Harvard Square, Cambridge, where she provided food services to Harvard University. She sold the restaurant and returned to her home-state of Maine where she managed the family business, Fresh Food Markets. At that time she also opened a floral boutique, and continued catering. During her career, Audrey has planned events for as many as 7,000 guests.
The success of her events stems from her eye for style, her feel for elegance, her consideration of the client, and her sound relationships with local vendors as well as vendors in Boston, Chicago, and New York. In addition to her intimate knowledge of the Northeast, Audrey has travelled extensively visiting South America, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, Belize, the Caribbean, and throughout the United States bringing to her events pieces of her experiences from around the world.
Audrey is a graduate of Northeastern University in Boston with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and an Associates degree in Fashion.
