My best friend turned 30 recently, so obviously I threw her an awesome party. Her birthday is in October and is typically overshadowed by Halloween, but I decided to use the time of year to my advantage. Myself, along with her mom and a couple other family members, put together a fun Fortune Telling party to celebrate this big milestone.
Throwing a murder mystery party is an awesome, unique event idea. I’ve thrown a couple of these and they never fail to be completely entertaining; there’s something alluring about pretending you’re someone else for an evening. This one, though, was one of my favourites of them all.
50 years together is a crazy milestone to celebrate with any couple, but I was lucky enough to be able to put together a party to celebrate the 50 years my own grandparents have spent together. My mom, my aunt, and I worked together to plan a surprise party for them. Keeping it a secret was not without its trials and tribulations, but in the end all the work and sneaking around was worth it. We were able to surprise them with a magical evening full of laughter, friends, and family.
At the beginning of June, I worked with a client on her husband’s birthday party. It was his 50th and that is a big year, so even though this is an annual event for them, she wanted to make this one even bigger and better! As a result, she chose a poker theme and decided to do a bit more with decor than usual. I addition, I brought in a food truck to cater the event so that they could both enjoy the day a little more.
This project was one of the first I took on when I decided I was going to really give this whole “running my own business” thing a try. I was contacted by a lady that was putting together a family commencement party for her granddaughter. She already had the venue booked, and needed some help pulling together some pink-themed decor, including a photo backdrop.
I’ve made these awesome DIY tissue paper rose symbols for a couple events now. They are so easy and the materials are totally affordable – they just take a little time to put together (and a love for hot glue)! Here’s a simple how-to article.
I love murder mysteries, both participating in and planning them. Check out my Hollywood themed party decor for a recent murder mystery party! Read on for some fun and affordable ideas to really nail this event theme.
