A Party with a punch of color!


 

So often I am asked, “How do you plan out a party?”  Usually I am inspired by a single word, color, food, holiday, and as of late, Amy Atlas of www.AmyAtlasEvents.com .   I stumbled upon her in a magazine (Better Homes and Garden) and then I googled her and saw on her site the most amazing dessert tables.  Wow, that is when I knew I wanted to create one of these and so the inspiration hit, followed by colors and hence the party starts to take shape!

This will be a very special birthday party; yes it is mine, as a master party planner, why wouldn’t I plan my own party!  I am totally excited to see the results and I cannot wait to see the reactions of my guests.  

With it being summer, the colors of hot pink and lime green seem to really speak to me, once I had decided on the colors; it was time to look for invites!  Since my husband is throwing the party, I had the invites printed, when normally I print them myself.  One of my favorite sites is www.LemonTreePaperie.com.

Searching the site I found several options and only one would truly fit the bill.  A little sassy like me, a little on the wild side, like me and with my chosen colors.  It also has some brown in the invite. The party is taking shape!  Now it’s time to decide on the food!   My husband suggested that we have it catered.  But I embodied the whole process and once again, the party planner in me just couldn’t see that actually being what I would want for me!  And so, it was time to decide the menu!  Appetizers, drinks and desserts would be the chosen party fare!  Watch for the next blog on hitting the cookbook and creating the menu!
