  • Incorporation rules and values into a Party

    There are many ways to create a party with value.

    But in order for you to create your own or think about them let’s talk about the 3 most common values




    Very hard to name them all and give examples. But if the values above resonate with you, let’s now think about how can we relate them to your party.

    If you go with the ideology that party is a perfect excuse to create memories with friends, family and people you love.

    You should think also, that you as a party host, should be responsible to understand that, these people are counting on you to make their TIME TOGETHER Special.

    So you need to think about it all, from the food to the music and entertainment how everything should play out, correct?


    Therefore you need to understand and determine who is going to be attending the event and tailor the event to their interests and needs.

    But one important detail is that, before anything else, is to make you analyze according to your values what you want and don’t want in your party. for example for many parents I know, others should be no alcoholic beverages at kids’ parties.

    But believe me, this is a culture issue too. I come from brazil and in the Latin community is normal to serve alcohol, at every type of party. Now, should I serve alcohol, at my kid’s party?

    In this case, who should you be loyal to? a cultural tradition or your values towards how you want to raise your children? that’s a decision that you as parents should discuss before writing your beverage list. That is an example of how you can create “rules” that go according to your values.

    If you are not a drinker, put your foot down. Especially at kids’ parties. It’s ok to implement your rules, you are the host.

    The same type of thinking should be applied when writing the guest list. is it appropriate to invite everyone? friends? family and colleagues or just friends with children? what should we do?

    Honestly,  again it’s a rule that you are your husband should discuss, every party is different, and some guests may be always invited but others may depending on the occasion.

    You know your friends and family more than anyone, so you should be aware of what type of people are they. It may be a good idea not to include everyone, cause they also may feel embarrassed.

    The worst thing you can do as a party host is not to be able to make everyone feel accommodated.

    This also should be considered when deciding the menu, you may have some guests that are vegan, so make sure you have food to accommodate the choices.

    Music, make sure the playlist is appropriate to the event and age group, and the entertainment as well.

    A belly dancer is not the right entertainment for a kid’s party, even when the theme party is Aladin!

    Planning is important, sometimes not everything may go as planned, but the more planning the better.

    Be kind and considerate of your rules and values and the people attending.








  • Things should consider when planning a party

    When it comes to planning a party, there are a lot of details to consider to ensure that it is a success. From determining the guest list and venue to organizing the menu and entertainment, there are many factors that can make or break a party. Here are some things to keep in mind as you plan your next celebration:

    1. Set a budget: Determine how much you are willing and able to spend on your party. This will help you make decisions about the venue, food, and other expenses.
    2. Choose a theme: A theme can help set the tone for your party and make it more memorable. Consider your guests and what they would enjoy when selecting a theme.
    3. Select a venue: The location of your party will depend on the size of your guest list and the theme of the event. Consider factors such as parking, accessibility, and the type of atmosphere you want to create.
    4. Invite guests: Determine who you want to invite to your party and send out invitations well in advance. This will give your guests plenty of time to RSVP and make any necessary arrangements.
    5. Plan the menu: Think about what type of food and drinks you want to serve at your party. Consider any dietary restrictions or allergies that your guests may have.
    6. Select entertainment: Consider what type of entertainment your guests would enjoy, whether it be music, games, or other activities.
    7. Consider decorations: Decorations can help set the mood and add to the overall ambiance of your party. Think about what type of decorations would be appropriate for your theme and venue.
    8. Plan for transportation: If your party is at a location that is not easily accessible by public transportation, consider providing transportation for your guests or offering to cover the cost of a ride-sharing service.

    By considering these factors when planning your party, you can ensure that it is a success and that your guests have a great time.

  • What should we be concentrating when we plan parties this year?

    Here is a question that I want you to keep in mind if you are hosting any party this year.

    This will be the best hosting tip I can give you.

    I want you to think about…

    WHY is it important to celebrate? Especially for children.

    Here are some important facts.

    Celebrating children can have a number of positive impacts on them.

    It can boost their self-esteem and self-confidence, as well as encourage them to continue putting in effort and striving for success.

    It can also strengthen the bond between the child and the person celebrating them, which can be especially important for children who may not receive as much positive attention or validation in other areas of their lives.

    Celebrating children can also help to foster a sense of accomplishment and pride in their achievements, which can motivate them to set and work towards future goals. In general, celebrating children can be an important way to support their emotional and social development and to help them feel valued and appreciated.

    So this year think twice, before planning a party.

    Make sure you take the opportunity to create value and insert traditions so these memories can be passed through generations.

    In my opinion, being a good party host is not just about the decorations and food, or how much money you are spending on this party, it’s more about how well can you spend this money to create wonderful memories.

    So no more blogging about just party DIY and food.

    Let’s create a better party strategy together!



  • I am back in 2023

         Out with the old and in with the new! It took me a whole year to revamp this blog. I spent most of 2022 looking back on old posts and realizing that my message was not clear, and focused too much on following the structures of other blogs. Such as sharing DIY party supplies, amazon links, and recipes instead of explaining my strategies. 

         I started this blog because I wanted to share more than ten years of experience in putting together unforgettable parties. It is my goal to help you create moments that will live in your memory for many years to come. All while acknowledging that not everyone has an unlimited budget. 

         In order to plan and execute a party like no other, the most important thing to consider is the milestone you want to celebrate. In the many parties that I have helped plan and design, I learned that the smallest touches often have the most significant meaning. Once, a client of mine was getting married and had no father to walk her down the aisle.  We tucked a medallion with a photo of him into the bride’s bouquet to keep a piece of her father there at the wedding itself.

         Sometimes things don’t go the way we plan them and problems arise unexpectedly.  As long as we are surrounded by the ones we love these minor troubles become nothing more than funny stories to tell later on. That is because when we celebrate anything, the celebration itself becomes a series of memories that last a lifetime.

    PS: I’ll still share occasional DIY decorations and recipes in between my main posts. Contact me with any questions you may have and I will gladly share any tips I’ve accumulated over these years.
