My Exciting News!- Life of the Party

Entertaining, decorating for weddings, and staging parties has always been a hobby of mine.  This is why I am so excited to announce that I have turned my hobby into an official side business!  This past September I took over Life of the Party, an event decorating company.

The two previous owners (who happen to be friends of mine) found themselves too busy with their full-time jobs and families to continue. They mainly decorated for weddings, but I am hoping to decorate and coordinate other events such as birthday parties, company events, and holiday parties.

With the new business came my brand new website that was just launched last week!  Kelly Hicks, the talented designer who also designed numerous items for my wedding and blog header worked hard to finish my site just in time for a bridal show last week. I didn't have much information to give her (yet) so the site looks a little sparse... but it's a great start :)
Go check it out!

Coming to North Dakota from a large city really made me realize the need for a person to encourage brides and other party-throwers to break away from the 'norm' and step out of the box when it comes to decor and traditions.  I want to be that person :)

I am thrilled to start in this new journey and put my twist on events.  No more cookie cutter weddings or parties here!
