I have a confession to make. The party that is planned for July (yesterday's post) is already feeling overwhelming to me. I have read with eagerness the great suggestions and comments you left.
I failed to mention one small detail that does play into all of this. Our first grandbaby is expected at exactly the same time as my Mom’s birthday. Hmmm. I started out thinking, “same city – no problem”. However it’s not my city. It’s 7 hours away. This could be a lot of events in one week.
With the party, I have the sense of a snowball gathering momentum and getting bigger and bigger.
I know that attention to detail is vital to a successful event. So I am pondering and considering before I go any farther.
I do love a party. I enjoy the planning, and I think I'm rather good at event planning. I even considered becoming a wedding planner after Uncommon Blonde’s wedding. The fact that it would mean working every weekend was a big deterrent. That, and dealing with kooky mothers of the brides. ; )
I’ll tell you, we pulled off an amazing, sacred event on a Southern Plantation and did it at a fraction of what you would think it cost us. Sigh. Now I’m in the mood for a party again. Oh fickle me.
Here’s a few photos from that awesome celebration 5 ½ years ago. Reminiscing about this special day is not the way to rein in my party plans!
