Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
Planning a party, any party, should be fun and fulfilling. Parties and celebrations mark many of our achievements in life — Birthdays, Sweet 16, Graduations, weddings, showers, and many more. We will be covering anything and everything that has to do with parties and celebrations from being organized, researching, decorations, themes, food and everything in between.
Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
I think I was a born party planner. I remember being young and organizing a fundraiser for Muscular Dystrophy in my neighborhood. I was always volunteering to help plan and carry out any and all kinds of parties and occasions. Still do! I eventually entered the event industry and worked in it for more than 20 years. I loved every minute of it!
Who influenced you most?
My mom, plain and simple. She is a miracle worker as far as I am concerned. She ran the household of 4 kids while my dad was away in the U.S. Navy aboard ships for months & more at a time. She had little money and little help since we lived away from family. She taught me how to be organized, plan for the unexpected and stretch a dollar to the very limit! All of these traits have helped me over the years when planning parties and living life.
