I'm a new guest blogger here on createmyevent.com and so happy to be lifting the lid on my box full of goodies like: LookBooks, boards, swatches, JumbledJuice, trends, tips, and templates, all collected over the many years of building events! I'm completing my degree in wedding planning and events and no longer will my ideas be trapped inside my office --because I'm coming out of my shell to share them all with you! Before we get to the really good stuff, let me take the mic and spill some gossip about myself:
(yes, I belly laugh and break into dance party mode really randomly!)
I crave pizza and sushi in the middle of the night.
I play jetsetter as much as I possibly can...
but I fear flying worse than anyone I know.
I want to own a boutique event space.
I will talk to anyone and everyone about anything.
I wear my sunglasses no matter the weather.
I write with lots of alliterations.
I'm inspired by color but I'm always drawn to black and white.
I fall in Love too quickly and often.
I bore easily.
I love the smell of my upbringing fresh New England air.
I adore California.
I never drink before I toast.
I need my family and friends to help me throw a great party.
I blog about the celebrations that are featured in my book.
I laugh really really loudly and a lot.
I believe: Fight For What You Love...
and Always Keep In Good Company.
I always insist ending everything on something sweet.
"the more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate" -oprah
may your life be filled with lots of love & laughter...
Keep your cool with patriotic fans.
These festive lanterns are perfect for keeping little hands busy. BTW, we've made these before, super fun and easy, and you can change the colors for any season.
The perfect signature cocktail? Celebrations' Berry Breeze.
The northern solstice (also known as the June solstice or summer solstice) is coming up soon, and it's the perfect time to throw a party, without competing with the abundance of July 4th events that will be filling your calendar. The solstice, which literally means "sun standing," marks the end of spring and the beginning of summer, so celebrate the seasons with a party influenced by the elements.
