First, I need to apologize for being MIA in the party planning world lately. I got engaged this past summer and most of my life is currently revolving around thousands of tiny details. If you have ever planned a wedding, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Secondly, I apologize that for the next 4 months, this blog will most likely be dedicated to wedding planning. I have found that planning a birthday party and planning a wedding are very similar, just on a smaller scale. So I hope that some of the ideas and projects that I am working on will be inspirational in all of your party planning, big or small. And because I am sure you are curious, here is a photo of my fiance and I the day we got engaged.
