Some time ago I wrote a blog about how it seemed everything was getting smaller. Well, it seems times have changed. Is it just me or is everything getting bigger?
Recently we helped facilitate a Western Themed School Mixer. The idea was to combine classes from a local all-boys and all-girls school. This would give the families of the 2020 graduates a chance to mingle and get to know one another. There was a mechanical bull, laser tag shoot out at the OK Corral, a western-themed crafting corner, and family photos in the “poke”.
One of the big hits of the day was our “Happy Trails” trail mix bar.
The other day my husband Scott sent me an article about a little girl who wanted a Poop Emoji party!
If you read my blog, you may remember a few posts I did some years back about parties that left big impressions on me. One was about a Party with Heart and the second was A Party with Vision. In the latter post, I commented on how one of the most rewarding aspects of owning your own business is having awesome clients. The other side of the coin, however is that having your own business means you also have employees.
Recently, I was asked by one of our large (and favorite) Event Planning Companies in SF to design a craft for an event at a Brazilian restaurant. Given the restaurant we wanted to create something that reflected Brazilian culture. It need to be fun, festive and colorful - a sort of “Carnival” feel. Our budget was slightly limited so I turned to my beloved Dollar Tree for inspiration. That’s where I spied these inexpensive “tiaras”, basically a foil headband with a cardboard back.
