When you're not sure if you can handle it on your own, don't.
If there's anything we've learned over the years (and learning by doing is kind of our thing), it's that party planning is not as chic as it looks. If you want to avoid getting the flu 3 hours post-event that will take you into the next quarter you shouldn't try this without hired help. Just saying.
(even though you’re anything but)
This is for the group that has a vision. You know what you want, you know how you like it and you’ve got the aesthetic but you’re busy. As in, too busy to execute because you’ve got a job to manage, a team to lead, food to prepare, classes to sweat through, kids to dress... You don’t need a host, you don’t even need a photographer (duh, have you seen your Insta?!). What you need is someone that can make. it. happen. You need someone to set a sparkling table, arrange flowers and confirm guests via email. That’s it. That’s all. Is that too much to ask for?!
No, sweetie, it’s not.
That's "Joy Of Missing Out" for those not in the know. JOMO is for the client on the go. This is for the one that needs time to organize their closet and get a blow-out before the big event (and if a 7-year-olds birthday is not a big event I don't know what is).
Maybe you don't know exactly what you want, but that's what you hire. people. for. and we've got you covered. The bridal shower/engagement party/christening/first birthday party is going to be off the chain. And no, it doesn't make you a bad person if you hire out. It's called delegating honey. And darling, that kind of delegating is exactly what allows you to be the shiny host you were born to be.
"I don’t ask for much, all I want is everything", is your mantra. And we're here for it.
This is your moment, your time to shine. This is going to be the event to end all events, the experience your guests will be talking about for decades.
You don’t really know how that’s going to happen but you know it’s what you need. You may have a photographer, but also you need a girl with her camera phone who’ll take drop-dead-gorgeous photos on the spot and who isn’t afraid of a little photoshop (you know what I mean?). You need someone who will take care of all details, from start to finish. Who will be there during your event that you can drop deep hints to and someone who will ensure that Suzy gets the gift bag for her and “her friend who couldn’t make it” (you know who you are Suzy).
