Let's Party .....


~ Throwing a Party should be a joy not a chore ~
*
I have organised quite a few parties over the years for both children and grown-ups, everything from general birthday parties through to themed and craft parties.
*
One that I organised recently was a surprise party for a "special birthday".
*
As it was a surprise I was called upon to organise absolutely everything from preparing and sending the invitations through to locating a suitable venue, caterer and even the entertainment!
The birthday girl was a ballroom enthusiast so I organised an MC to host ballroom dancing for the start of the evening and then a DJ for the disco later on. For those guests with two left feet I arranged a few party games and then for those who preferred to remain seated I incorporated quizzes and crosswords (based on the guest of honour's birth date) into the table decorations.
*
For those all important finishing touches I used a combination of balloons, ribbons and candles to decorate the venue; organised a welcome drink for the guests (to ensure that everyone was in the party mood!); and finally I handmade some party favours and gift bags for the guests to take away with them at the end of the evening.
*
All in all it was a night to remember and it didn't break the bank either !
*
So, if this inspires you to have a party and you would like help to organise it then give me a call - I will be happy to discuss ideas with you.
