Baby showers are fun and exciting, but sometimes some people like to push the edgy factor. Its ok to be different and try to catch the attention of family and friends, but try not to turn them off or offend with cakes that are too graphic for me to even post. So keep it silly but not scary.
Go Green with Flowers
We love the earth and I want my children's children to have a beautiful world to party in for thier special occasion. Natual vines pocked from your yard and flowers can add a breath of fresh air to your event. It can cost you pennies or thousands depending on your resources of who you know. Please give this oppion some thought for the future sake.
At the very least you can have a fresh arrangement for your head table to show your love for your natural surroundings.
Enjoy your life and this plannet.
Yes I know you bragged to your friends that you plan to get torn up, but i'm not trying to be a BUZZ kill when I say not a good idea. Let me explain, this day and age with a lot of emotion distress you have to be careful of the tone you set for you event. I have seen people come to an event depressed and after a few drinks tear the place from end to end. You don' want that and the culprits are normal introverts so its a shock sometimes to the host. In not asking you to be Buzzkillinton at your event but just set a tone of fun and moderation.
The tone can be set by setting a theme and also having a dress code, I know it sounds silly but after watching 10 years worth of parties and can tell you people act how they feel in a nice outfit.
Good luck, leave a comment if you have had any experiences good or bad.
You are finally turning 50 and you want to have a blast and live it up. First I would like to say congratulations this is a big deal and you should treat it as such. One great way to go all the way is plan for a Thursday. Its a cool day because all your mature friends will not pass it up, also you can budget in more sophisticated amenities to your party because venues normally offer Thursdays at a discount.
Now if your birthday is on a Friday or Thursday you are in super luck. You can celebrate the Friday like a new years type of even at midnight and if on Thursday it will be very easy to convince your friends to come out.
One word of caution for doing a party on Thursday, it must be planned ahead.

This all boils down to budget, because if you can afford why not treat yourself? By this time I'm sure you know who is coming to your event and how much you plan to spend. With this knowledge in hand you want to dress (the venue) to impress with out hitting skid row.
The first neat trick is to focus on your stage area. Just like going to a fancy show the first place a person looks at is depths, so hit them with all you got on your stage.
Second thing a person does is scout out were they plan to sit. This is were elaborate and well imagined center pieces dazzles the eyes. Center pieces gives you a lot of wiggle room with cost, because they are a combination of many items.
By focusing on those two items first you will befuddle your pickiest aunty and competitive siblings. Shhhhh lets this be our little secret.
I see that you are ready to spend to make everyone feel great coming to your affair. I agree with you because life is short, this is your rights of passage. But let me let you in on a little secret, for only a few hundred dollars you can have a palace that will make your deepest critic gasp for air. I'm not crazy I'm just filled with air, Hot air. With balloons, creativity and a skillful decorator you can decorate a venue beyond recognition. I have seen it many times.
Just remember color coordination counts it makes all the difference in the world. Ask to see examples if you are not familiar with balloon architecture. In the end you will have pictures and memories to last for years.
Thanks for reading, give me a call anytime if you want any ideas.
Most parents fear that someone will get hurt at their child's party. Safety is a valid concern. Children have a way of entertaining themselves on an escalation basis. Let me explain. One time I sat in on a kids party that booked early morning, I was bored so i decided to stay. First there was just one child hitting another with a balloon, that led to ten,that also led to the candy table on the floor. Its was cute and no one was upset. But it could have been prevented if scheduled activities were planned for the active minds.
Just remember kids see each other everyday in school, they don't come to a party to socialize, they come to play, so be prepared to keep them busy and in return you get to keep your sanity.
Hi i know you are very excited and a little on edge for your event, so sit back and take a deep breath because you don't want to be the architect of your own destruction. I know it sounds drastic but its something that will creep up on you when you the last minute hives and the paranoia of "is there anyone here to really help me sets in".
Now that i have your attention i want you to fold a piece of paper in two and one columns "what i want" "how much". After you realize the cost you can either go a little fancier than planned or adjust to reality.
That's just the start but at least you have a piece of mind in what you are getting into, because its going to be a bumpy fun ride.
