Ideas I actually find inspiring.Β  Ideas I intend to execute.

And while I’ll probably never consider myself an amazing party planner, I must say this is the most confident I’ve felt about planning a party in a while (other than my Wedding which in my humble opinion was one of the best parties ever!!!).

If you have any other brilliant(ly simple) ideas for me and/or inspirations from Pinterest to share with me for these two events, I’m all ears!
