Parties are just fun! I love how when you are in a party laughter is infectious, and you can feel happiness all around you. The smile of children playing at a birthday, the excitement of the cake and opening presents, and even the occasional meltdown of a tired party guest (we have lots of those in my kids parties, LOL) makes for an unforgettable celebration.
Now, if you ask me as a designer why I love parties? that's a whole different answer! The mere thought of a celebration gets my creativity going. I start the research right away and start putting together a theme, color scheme, menu and everything starts coming together. Thinking about decor, party favors and everything related to a party can be very stressful for some people. I have some friends who would rather buy prepackaged party kits, because they can't handle the stress of planning a celebration. For me the entire process is exciting and fun! Whether a party is just a birthday cake with the family, or an extravagant affair, the reason for having a party is the same: celebration of love, friendship, joy, and just plain old fun!
