The other day my husband Scott sent me an article about a little girl who wanted a Poop Emoji party!
If you read my blog, you may remember a few posts I did some years back about parties that left big impressions on me. One was about a Party with Heart and the second was A Party with Vision. In the latter post, I commented on how one of the most rewarding aspects of owning your own business is having awesome clients. The other side of the coin, however is that having your own business means you also have employees.
When it comes to party planning, I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest. I love it because there are so many amazing ideas generated by it. I love it when images stimulate my or my client’s imaginations. It’s great to get a picture that illustrates what the client desires. It helps in guiding me to create the perfect event.
It can also serve to set unrealistic expectations.
Let's take a poll: Do you know when your “golden" birthday is? Everyone has one. If you are like I was prior to moving West, this may be your first encounter with the term. If you guessed your 50th, that’s a good guess, seeing as a 50th wedding anniversary is gold. You’d be waaay off. By at least 19 years. A “golden" birthday is when the day of your birth matches the number or years you are old. For example, I was born May 6. My golden birthday would have been when I turned 6.
