My sister Jo and I have been planning events for our friends, our family, and close acquaintances for over 2 decades now. Many of those people have either told us, you should do this for a living, you should write a book, or you should get paid. To be honest, it never occurred to us that we COULD get paid for this. Then we started playing around with the idea, putting together all the material we have used in the past, and discovered we CAN do this!
We are 2 overeducated, over qualified, and under appreciated stay-at-home moms (Let’s face it, who really NEEDS a graduate degree to extract raisins from a toddler’s nose.) We have participated in play dates, Sunday school, scouting, PTA, and other events. We have done birthday parties, baby showers, bridal showers, Advent workshops, Super Bowl Parties and Mom's Night Out events.
We do these things because we want to be involved with our kids, our husbands, and our community. BUT we also want to have FUN. I mean, come on ladies, if we have to put up with our men in front of the big screen during the big game, we might as well have the place decked out with great decorations and play commercial BINGO to keep us occupied! If we are going to throw our friend a baby shower, it might as well become a couples Baby-que where the men can BBQ our lunch, and we can play our games, right?
What Jo and I are in the process of doing, is putting together party ideas, gathering ideas, showers and mom's night out events where we do the planning and you take the credit. We provide you with the tools you need to throw a great event from the budget conscious on up. We will teach you how to use what you have, guide you on where to get what you need, and provide you all the materials to make an idea an event. Make your good event become a GREAT event. Have your friends tell you, "You throw a mean party!"
We are passionate about planning events. We never do anything half way. We want you to have a successful event and take ALL the credit.
