When I was growing up, I loved helping my mother plan my birthday parties. While other children were happy to simply sit back and wait for the "big day," I insisted on helping my mother choose the party theme and even pick out party decorations. She always said she was impressed with my party-planning skills and that I was a big help to her. It may sound like no surprise that I now love planning parties and events as an adult! I throw a few large events at my home every year, and any time a friend is planning an event, I am always the first person they recruit as a helper, because I love event planning so much! I thought it would be fun to create a blog to share my event planning tips on, so come back often for event planning help!
