About Us

Tailored Events was founded in 1979 by mother & son, Rose Lau & Rich Lau. We began as Tailored Tunes Singing Telegrams, the first singing telegram company on Long Island and became known for composing specially written parody telegrams. Daughter Kathy Lau, current owner, quit her club musician gigs and joined on soon after Rich explained how much fun it all was. The balloon industry was just starting up also, so balloon bouquet delivery was an early addition and we soon expanded into balloon décor and theme decoration.

Family inspired, owned & operated, Tailored Events now celebrates its 30 Anniversary.

Along the way, all of the family has jumped in. Rose Lau was an accomplished fine artist, talented vocalist, all around creative person and amateur stage set designer so event décor was a natural progression. Patriarch Tony Lau, was our first expert Santa and Tuba-Loonagram artist.  Brother Bill has been invaluable crew & consultant, his talented wife Fran, the stylist of many current designs. Sister Pat Kirn of Atlanta GA, managed Tailored Tunes South for a time.
Rich Lau, fine vocalist, writer, humorous raconteur and terrific Santa, is now managing attorney at Richard T Lau & Associates. His wife Jennifer is our fabulous graphic designer.

Kathy Lau was a music teacher and singer/ guitarist before jumping in to manage the company, developing telegram characters and writing and performing Tailored Tunes. She is very excited to have designed and produced all of the décor seen on this site.

It is with extreme pleasure that Tailored Events proudly celebrates 30 years in business.

Rich was right all those years ago, this is great fun.
