Meet Big Dot

About us - so many dots, so little time


Big Dot of Happiness is an “Event Party Company” where celebration and happiness come to play. We specialize in baby showers, birthday parties, bridal showers, baptisms and anniversaries but we're also the originator of various games, invitations and themed party supply products that we call “Big Dot Originals.”


At Big Dot of Happiness, we invest as much in the happiness of our employees as we do our customers. From time to time, you may catch us trying to cram a bunch of Big Dotters into a car in a Bugster vs. Coopster competition, or doing some turkey bowling to celebrate the holidays or taking surprise field trip to the mall. You never know what random fun is going to happen “inside the dot.” It’s all part of the Big Dot Way of Life!


If you’ve ever seen us in action or peeked at our Facebook page, you can tell we are passionate about our jobs! Working at Big Dot of Happiness means making a serious commitment to learning about great service, helping to create a remarkable workplace and always finding new ways to be original. We love celebration. We live and breathe celebration. We are celebration. And celebrations are all about creating remarkable smiles. Now doesn’t that put a smile on your face?


It all started with a woman, a card table and a dream.

The creation of dots - a note from the “Creator of Dots”


Back in 1999, I was a mom "at home" with my kids and loved it. But being the restless sort that I am, I sought out some hobby to keep my attention occupied in the random and rare moments when I wasn't busy. To the amusement of my husband, I started tinkering -  creating character towels and other gift items for my children and friends who were having babies. To make a LONG story short... from the start of my tinkering, the business concept grew and grew and grew – so much, in fact, that my husband Scott left his engineering job and joined me!


As the “Creator of Dots” I manage the creative side of the company while “Connector of Dots” and CEO Scott manages the business side. Working with your spouse is a regular reminder of the importance of family. Just like any other partnership, patience and understanding is required – after all, there are peaks and valleys. But when it comes right down to it, we’re a team.


A few years and three buildings later, we now work together to run a company of 45 “fanatics” in a 20,000-square-foot facility, offering original party themes, invitations, games and other party planning necessities. We fantatics, also called "expert experts" love helping our customers have pleasant, amazing, stress-free memories. We help you celebrate life's most memorable occasions, instead of regretting to plan the events. We're happy to help make your occasion fun. Isn't it about time someone said that?


Even with the success of creating of unique party supplies, we pride ourselves in our commitment to family – our own, and that of our team members and customers. The more support we give each other and our team, the more they’ll grow and, in turn, provide remarkable service to our customers and make these once-in-a-lifetime occasions even better!
