Virginia Trafton Frischkorn
Virginia Trafton Frischkorn is the founder and CEO of Bluebird Productions, Something Blue and Partytrick. She moved to Colorado, after graduating from the University of Virginia in 2006 with a degree in Art History and Psychology. Originally drawn to Aspen for its winter ski season, Virginia quickly fell in love with the summer and autumnal months, as well as the amazing activities, food, and culture Aspen had to offer. After two years of playing in the snow as a ski instructor, she worked at The Little Nell as a Catering Sales and Events Manager. The Nell gave Virginia the great opportunity to develop a sharp attention to detail, exceptional communication skills, and a high standard for providing the utmost quality of service for each of her clients — all of which would lead her to establish her own wedding and special events production companies. Virginia’s background in fine art and her time spent exploring the world shaped her approach to the events space and the passion she feels from bringing people together.
Virginia is now based in Denver but holds tight to the roots set in Aspen. She lives with her two children (six-year-old Zach and four-year-old Elizabeth) and avalanche rescue dog, Zara.
Bluebird Productions is a nationally renowned wedding and event company named in Martha Stewart Weddings, Vogue, Brides, and more as a top planner in the country. We have built a reputation for our top-notch systems and impeccable design aesthetic.
Something Blue by Bluebird was conceptualized after receiving many requests from vendors and clients alike for a baby Bluebird. We offer a thorough touch to “month-of” event management. Up until the day of the wedding, we are your advocate, we keep you sane, organized, and assist with making sure all of the details come together perfectly.
Partytrick is a digitally-native startup that empowers hosts throw curated, personal experiences. We empower our consumer to gather, create connections, and have meaningful conversations by offering digital solutions to help people plan, design and produce these moments and experiences (and parties!). Above all else, we believe in bringing back the in-person connection and community we all deeply crave and need. We believe this connection and community should and could happen organically – around a kitchen island (the best parties end in the kitchen!), a dinner table, a picnic blanket, at a tailgate, or in the backyard. We provide our users with the tools, tips and tricks to plan, design, and throw fabulous everyday and special celebrations. Think Food52, Pinterest, meets Asana – bundled up and served on a gorgeous platter.
