Welcome back to creative entertaining. Last weekend I were part of the planning for a 13th birthday party and our client was so happy she featured us on a lifestyle post in her business blog. Today I am sharing part of that post and telling you about my 5 benefits to hiring an event planner!
1. You’ll get more for your dollar– Planners often have connections to vendors and wholesalers. They can negotiate with these contacts and get you the best deals.
2. They are creative! Planners have done this before and will have creative ways of putting things together to make your event look awesome without breaking the budget!
3. Someone is there to help you set up and tear down. Hosting a party can be a long day and having someone on site to help you – or do the setting up for you – can be a huge stress reliever!
4. Planners can help you develop your theme and stay focused. There are so many options these days! Having someone help you stay on track and coordinate the different aspects of the event can be very helpful.
5. Your time is valuable- this is their job. Hire someone who is priced reasonably and you will enjoy giving your input and then letting the professionals get things done so you can work on everything else going on in your life.
Stay tuned for delicious muffin recipes tomorrow! and wedding planning tips later this week.
Today I am sharing some of my favourite DIY home organization projects. When it’s this cold out, craft time and a hot chocolate sounds like the perfect Sunday
What I love about these projects is that most of them can be done with items you already have at home!
Using an old frame or window shutter to hang jewellery is an awesome idea! I love the look of having everything displayed so it can easily be found yet be organized and look nice.
Does anyone else have a scarf obsession? I have SO many and this DIY project is perfect to keep them all in one spot. Using shower curtain hooks and zip ties- this super functional piece is easy to make and fits right in the closet!
When it comes to crafts Martha Stewart knows best! Check out this post about how to create this awesome etched glass jars to stay organized in the kitchen.
Tomorrow i’ll be posting 3 delicious weekend crockpot recipes.
This weekend was filled with brides, sparkles and colors. My weekend inspired this post- Pantone’s color of the year (2014) is Radiant Orchid is slowly starting to show up and it’s exciting. I was kind of surprised by this color choice, but I like it. It’s bright, comes in many pretty shades and goes well with other colors and neutrals (which I love!).
To brighten up your Monday, here’s a little color inspiration!
In your home
In your closet
For events & weddings
Gourmet sandwiches and products I love: kitchen edition still coming up this week!
The first week of 2014 has come and gone and after discussing the beginning of a new year with everyone over the last few days, I’ve decided to share thoughts with all of you as well.
I love hearing what everyone’s favourite moment of 2013 was, because even if you didn’t have the best year, there’s got to be one moment that made you truly happy.
I like to set goals for the year, not necessarily resolutions, not changes or breaking habits but something to look forward to!
It’s true what they say, people who love to eat are always the best people. I am going to continue my cooking adventure! Food brings people together so I will to try new recipes, entertain, and enjoy my guests.
I’ve made it a goal to save and go somewhere I’ve never been. A little adventure is always necessary
I will continue to learn, network and make connections.
we should all spend more time withe the ones we love
Happy Wednesday! Stay tuned for winter wedding inspiration later this week.
