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. Being one myself I made a little pact with my beloved man (who, by the way, is a service member and is away most of the time) to organize a special evening or a day meet-up on the day of my birthday.
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. The last situation you want is to show up to an occasion feeling over or underdressed and sticking out in a crowd of people.
Learn what you should wear to some of the most common special events, so you can stop stressing and truly enjoy yourself. It’s all about finding a balance between what’s considered appropriate and then working in a little bit of your personal style to the outfit.

There’s nothing more exciting than receiving a box full of chocolate. Recently, R.M. Palmer sent over some of their amazing chocolates to sample and I was so excited when I saw they had color themes! It’s hard to find good chocolate that has specific colors you can buy to match party themes, etc.
It’s the summertime, and the partying is easy. Try making this summer party easy to throw, but hard to forget.
Keep mosquitoes away
If anything can ruin a party, it’s the constant scratching of your legs and elbows. Provide a basket full of insect repellent and after-bite balm. You can also provide mosquito-repellent odorless lamps, which will go great with your lightning.

With summertime almost here, it can only mean two things: good weather and fun outdoor events. As you start to plan your next backyard campout or beginning of summer party, consider a fun activity that involves your fire pit. The best fire pit or bonfire activity is, of course, making s’mores!

Are you tired of having the similar concept for Halloween each year? Why don’t you try this theme that would give the night of October 31 a new vibe?
Bohemian or Boho and Halloween are two different styles that you can’t imagine would fit. Boho is a combination of a Bohemian style and chic vibes. All in all, it gave you the vintage style that is much similar to the hippies of the 60s and 70s. It can make the wearer classy, cool or edgy–depends on how would she match the outfits.
The thing with boho is that it could give you the mystery feeling that can be connected with the scary theme that Halloween brings. Here are things that you might want to recreate to make your party a bit unusual than what it used to be.
Choose the perfect location
It’ll not be a Boho if it’s not being held outside. If it’s allowed, you can choose a cemetery close to your home as a venue. There are some cemeteries that are allowing parties like this but with some restrictions that you need to follow for your own safety, and of your guests, too.
A forest can be a great place where you can hold your Halloween party. Make sure that the place is safe for you and the people you’ve invited. The presentation will pretty much look like the photo below but the table is longer and shorter, the table fitted for a boho-themed party.
Hosting a party in your back yard can be fun and exciting for everyone involved. You can choose a theme for the event or set up a few tables for food along with a few games to play. There are a few ways that you can get your back yard ready for a get-together without spending a lot of time or money.
Choose a Theme
Whether it’s a luau, a western BBQ or a palette of shades in the same color family, you need to start with some kind of basic plan. Working with a theme often makes things easier when you’re planning because you can choose food, decorations, and games to go along with that theme. If you don’t want to use a theme and just want to have a social gathering with friends and family, then at least decorate using similar colors for the tablecloths, utensils and other items that are in the yard.
