Challenges are only part of the many problems you may encounter when you begin planning a large social event. Whether the guest list includes 1,000 people or 100,000 people, a successful project relies on detailed and specific organization.

Here are seven steps you can use when planning a large social event.
Baby showers are exciting celebrations for the newest member of any given family. While it’s traditional to throw a baby shower, most people can attest to attending a baby shower that seemed to never end. You don’t want that to be your story. Consider the following ways you can create a baby shower that your family and friends will love and remember for years.
A baby shower should be celebratory. People usually think that the decorations should be either pink or blue. This can look outdated quickly. If you don’t know the sex of the child or don’t care for traditional colors try fun themes like baby animals or adding different shades. Instead of plastering a wall with light pink add blushes, hot pinks, and golds. Gradients are fun and you can re-use the decorations. You can make banners out of paper pads sold at Michaels that can go with everything from a mermaid theme to a rustic chic look. If your family has a pet name for the baby like “honey” or “sugar bear” you can give little honey bottles with the baby’s name. Be creative and use pet names the expecting couple use to try and personalize the decor.

Sloppy bachelorette parties aren’t for everyone…Celebrate your bride creatively and make memories you’ll actually have the next morning!
Congratulations! You’ve been chosen to be the maid of honor. You love the bride, are honored to be a part of her big day and will make it perfect for her, no matter what. She chose YOU for a reason. But suddenly you have a list of important tasks to do, including making decisions, solving crisis moments,… and having tons of tissues for your precious friend. You are now an event manager, psychologist, and fairy godmother – all in one. But you don’t have to be afraid! You’re up for the job! It can be a very demanding role between the showers, parties, wardrobe decisions, and detail-juggling, but fear not – you will have an amazing experience that you will never forget. (I know from personal experience.)
Having a moment to yourself matters when you’re a busy mummy having 2 little kids to take care of 24\7.

It’s enticing to want to attend a lot of different special events throughout your lifetime, but you may be hesitant to accept certain invitations because you’re unsure of what to wear.

It’s the summertime, and the partying is easy. Try making this summer party easy to throw, but hard to forget.
Keep mosquitoes away
