My longest and closest friends can attest to my long-withstanding appreciation for and commitment to Beyonce. She makes an appearance in every playlist I make & reminds me there are good things in this world. Which is why, during exam week, she is my stress reliever. While this isn’t that new (June 2011) My beloved 8tracks.com introduced me to her rendition of Kings of Leon’s “Sex is on Fire.” No no, Beyonce. You’re on fire. (Excuse the cheesy transition.)
Since I was a little girl, I’ve kept sketchbooks of dreamt up party plans — some real, most imaginary. These sketch books consisted of cutouts from Martha Stewart Wedding Magazine, color schemes created with colored pencils, timelines of events, food to be served, the guests that would eat the food, etc.
Today, with age and experience under my belt, I hope to bring to this blog the same inspirational findings as that of my grade school sketchbooks with what I hope to be a greater degree of sophistication in addition to being useful to those of you like me looking for new event planning ideas, or (also like me) just love a good party.
Growing up in the hospitality industry, some excellent resources are at my disposal to help you plan your next event.
Also, I believe inspiration can be found any and everywhere. With that in mind, this blog will also host some material from different artistic genres which I hope will get your creative juices flowing!
It is my desire that with the mixture of all these elements, this blog will become an eclectic archive for you to return to when in need of a great idea or creative inspiration.
Hope you enjoy!
My best friend since the age of 2, S.H.’s sister is getting married this Saturday! Tonight I’m headed over to finish some last minute crafting before the big day.
They asked me to take some more candid pictures in addition to the professional photographer. I have a feeling I’ll be snapping from that morning on, so be ready for many posts in the upcoming week as I space out all of the fun aspects of the day.
This will be different from my typical “gigs” (not that this is a gig; it’s more for fun), because I’m photographing guests and party times instead of the decor, food, etc. I’d say my typical ratio of non-people to people photos on a typical weekend are 200:1, so human interaction is a rarity (haha).
Anywho, I’m excited to report back on all the wedding fun! Hope you have a good weekend as well!
