Dainty Delights by Ivana was created in January 2014 in Los Angeles, CA. Ivana was inspired to create Dainty Delights by Ivana LLC by her life long passion for hospitality & event planning, interests her mother & grandmother helped her cultivate early in life. From her days as a child playing waitress to family members & taking orders with crayons & paper, Ivana has always enjoyed spreading happiness & making others smile with food.
To date, with vast experience gained working in various event-planning capacities, Ivana has independently & successfully planned & coordinated full-food service social gatherings, professional meetings, & fundraising events for upwards of 500 people.
Ivana’s years of event planning & solid track record, combined with her hustle mentality & drive, birthed Dainty Delights by Ivana when she decided she wanted to share positive energy & joy by putting her passion for hospitality & culinary arts to work. As a proud alumnus of UC Berkeley & UCLA, Ivana combines skills learned in the classroom with her unique life experiences to genuinely connect with each client. We at Dainty Delights by Ivana pride ourselves on using food & maximum attention to detail to spread love & positivity through the avenues of catering & hospitality.
What being a #WorkingWoman means to her:
The term #WorkingWoman describes a woman who is determined to create a life for herself that encompasses the goals that are most important to her & closest to her heart. She understands that in order to do so, time, sacrifice, effort, & persistence will be required, so every day when she wakes up, she puts one foot in front of the other and takes baby steps daily to make her goals & aspirations a reality.
Ivana, on knowing her worth:
I ensure that women working in event planning & hospitality industries know their worth by openly sharing knowledge gained my personal experiences in this industry. I believe that knowledge is power, and mentorship & networking with other women are opportunities where I can share & exchange new ideas & perspectives with other #workingwomen working hard towards their personal & professional goals.
