I LOVE to plan & host parties as most of you would know. I can get 100% engrossed into a party theme and have a ball finding things to match that theme that the party guests (big and small) will enjoy. I know by the lovely comments left here on my blog that allot of you wonderful readers love a good party too.
Do you, like me, follow 100's of party blogs and websites that help you find inspiration and give you ideas and DIY tutorials for your party planning? Do you have any 'rules' you personally stick to when planning a party? nothing major just a few little tips you may have picked up along the way that help you enjoy the party just as much as you would love the guests to enjoy them? Or maybe you stomach turns at the very thought of a party needing to be planned? How will you cope with all those kids? how will you find time to get everything done? how on earth will you manage to make your dessert table look even a little bit as amazing as Amy Atlas?
Never fear... I spotted a brilliant blog post over the weekend that you MUST read.
The very clever ladies over at Home Made Parties blog wrote THIS post that might seem a little long at first sight but trust me, it's worth a read. And although the title is Hosting a great children's party: The ultimate guide (great advice & your top 20 rules) I think most of the 20 rules can be applied to any party or event you are planning for children or adults.
Thanks Jane (& Lou) for a GREAT blog post and for your fabulous tips!!
