How to Plan a Party Party

I’m having a party. I love planning a party.  This party is a little different though – it’s a party about how to plan a party.   And ten of you are invited.

On Tuesday, May 8th,7:00 p.m. I’ll be hosting a “How to Plan a Party Party” at my home.  We will talk about all things party.  How to pick a party theme, invitations, decor, food and activities.  Everything that goes into planning a party.

I’ll walk you step by step through  how I put a party together.   You can use what you learn whether you are planning a birthday party, a shower, graduation party, dinner party or even a wedding!

I’ve got a big party I’m planning this summer and I’ll share with you some of the things I’ve got planned.

This party is being sponsored by Snapfish and you’ll go home with some party treats courtesy of Snapfish.

If you’d like to attend either leave a comment or send me an email to reserve your spot.

Disclosure – This is a compensated party provided by Snapfish by HP that includes monetary compensation and products.

    Leigh Anne,
    Since many of your readers are like me and live far away, would you consider doing this as a blog post series or offering an ebook/email including this info? You are definitely a pro at this and if I lived near you I would be there in an instant!

    Heidi says:

    I agree with Sara H. I live in Maine and would love to attend too. Would you consider opening it up “live” on the internet then us folks who live far away could still buy in and feel like we are attending even if it is miles away. Or maybe its time to go on tour then we would all get a chance to attend. :)
