The one thing I noticed as a Maid of Honor was the focus of information for the bride-to-be (which they totally deserve – it’s their day!!!) but the lack of advice and tips to help her bridesmaids plan equally fun events leading up to the occasion. As a bridesmaid, you get to plan bachelorette parties, which turn into weekend getaways, bridal showers that turn into a night out with your best girlfriends, and everything in between.
I knew I didn’t want the fun of “assistant wedding planner” aka Maid of Honor to end. Since I wasn’t planning a wedding of my own, I knew I had to find something to fill the void (and extra time!) I majored in Fine arts in college, and I decided to put my creativity to work and help supply cute giftware for not only brides-to-be, but anyone in search of a little extra pop for a fun event or just an evening at home with a glass of wine! With that, I started my Etsy shop a year ago, and it has been such a joy and pleasure to help make any event just a little more special. I cannot thank everyone enough for the love and support that has led to my successful year.
After a year, I decided it was time to do even more. Creating personalized drinkware and gifts is so enjoyable and fun, but I still LOVE planning events and traveling – which I got to do so much of as a bridesmaid. This blog is dedicated to just that. This site is for all things fun – party planning for weddings, planning vacations with friends and family, finding the best recipes for an event or the perfect restaurant for a dinner, every day parties, or even a simple wine and cheese party with friends – anything that makes your day, big or small, a little more special. I hope you enjoy the fun, adventures, and stories I have to share along with the planning, tips, and tricks that go into it all!
