Valerie & Joe, two of the nicest people in business, offer a background of fascinating professional skill and wit.  Read on about their totally cool start of this terrific local business!

Nine months into a dating relationship is a risky time to start a business, but that’s exactly how it happened at Enticing Tables. Launched in December, 2009, Enticing Tables is a collaboration of partners, Valerie McCartney and Joe McKinney. While the two were watching a wedding show on TV, Valerie noticed the extremely dated and unattractive candelabras on display at the otherwise chic wedding. Surprised that those same candelabras were used at her sisters’ 1970’s-era weddings, she suggested to Joe that somebody needed to come up with something modern. She quickly sketched a design on a napkin and the design ultimately became Enticing Tables’ first prototype. A little over a year later, the Enticing Tables portfolio includes cupcake trees, cake stands, chandeliers, chuppahs, floral stands and other one-of-a-kind metal décor specifically tailored for wedding and party rentals.

With a background in marketing and franchise development, Valerie has held senior level positions at PepsiCo, Checkers/Rally’s, El Pollo Loco and Johnny Rockets. The skills acquired there prove useful on a daily basis as she continues to build the Enticing Tables portfolio and brand name. In addition to managing the day-to-day operations and client service, Valerie creates most of the company’s signature designs.

Having a 25-year career as an aerospace welder and facing the long, slow decline of the NASA space program, Joe was looking for a way to continue to use his skills. His inherent attention to detail and ability to work with a variety of metals make him a perfect fit for the specialized construction and precision welding needed at Enticing Tables.

As Enticing Tables has continued to grow and expand, so has the couple’s relationship. Planning has just started for a fall, 2012 wedding…..and you can bet the candelabras will be stunning!
