{Throwback Thursday} Hot Cocoa Party

I know I’m getting a jump on the Christmas holiday with this post, but in this business it seems like we are forced to celebrate each holiday a couple months early. I’m usually last minute with my photo shoots but I’ve been looking into my new christmas theme for about 4 weeks now. While searching I came across my Christmas party from last year and wanted to share it with you on this “throwback Thursday”.

I used Amanda’s Printables To Go for this. I really wanted to use the traditional christmas colors because the elf on the shelf was so huge last year and I knew I was going to incorporate that little fella in one way or another!

A Candy Corn Halloween Party

rsz_11rsz_1halloween8

If you are following along on my business ventures you know that I have been on The Rhode Show a few times to feature some of my candy and dessert buffets (link to watch the latest video is here). It is so much fun and is such a great opportunity, that I jump at every chance I get to be on the show. It is, however, a ton of work (I’M NOT COMPLAINING, I SWEAR!) and I would be crazy to add to that by doing a photo shoot of that exact setup the night before, right? Welp, I guess I am bat poop crazy because that’s just what I did! Continue reading

A Cotton Candy Themed Play date

ccc1

My all time favorite party treat is cotton candy. Pink and fluffy; it’s such a classic and it always adds a vintage element to the party. I had originally planned to do a pink and green circus themed party using lots of pastels and girly details. I found myself trying to work the cotton candy into the event more than the theme itself. It dawned on me that the circus theme was just a disguise for my cotton candy obsession. It was then that I decided to make cotton candy it’s very own party theme and I personally think that is one of the most genius ideas I have had to date! Continue reading

Our Annual Apple Picking Party

image

Fall is by far my favorite season and my entire family shares the same feeling. Sure, we live in Rhode Island and our beaches are gorgeous and the Summers are like no other. But, the humidity gets to you after a while and right around the middle of August we start getting itchy for school to start and the leaves to fall. The beaches are just as beautiful in September, and by then the tourists are gone so you can walk the beach for miles in a comfy sweater and scarf. Ahhhh, doesn’t that sound nice? Continue reading

A week in the life of a party planner

This post has been swirling around my head for a couple of months now and the only thing that has postponed it is my crazy schedule. I’m not complaining. Busy is good. But my goal is to set aside more time to focus on this blog.

In the meantime, I’ve been wanting to show you what “busy” really means in the life of a party planner. I can only speak for myself and I’m sure other planners have better systems, work faster, and simply do things differently, but I have a feeling my readers might get a kick out of seeing what goes into this whole operation. I have a feeling you might be surprised at how UNglamarous this career really is! I’ll take you through the week of an event because that’s when all the running around is done. Continue reading

{party on a budget} Hop Into Spring!

image

When I first got into party planning, I was researching ideas and resources for my own wedding back in 2010. Candy buffets and themed parties had just started to gain popularity, so basic things like striped paper bags and straws were few and far between (hard to believe, right?). It took me an entire afternoon to find bright pink and white striped treat bags for my circus themed wedding, and once I finally tracked some down I was willing to pay any amount for them!
