Party Planning

I've got a few events I'm hosting over the next few months that I'm excited about. I love planning things and having people come to my home. My house is kind of small so I don't really like to have parties now. I know in our next house (which will hopefully happen before baby #2) I will have parties all the time. So here is what I've been planning...

I'm hosting a ThirtyOne gifts party in my home for a friend of mine. This will be a pretty simple event. I'm already thinking of menu ideas for refreshments and how I will arrange my living/dining area for seating. I'm having this on a Friday evening so I want to serve more filling foods since people will be hungry after working all day. However I have a baby and will probably work some that day so I don't want to do anything too crazy. I'm thinking I will make a veggie tray, cheese & cracker tray and a few desserts the night before. That way on party day all I have to do is prepare some warm filling foods, drinks and decorate!

I'm cohosting a graduation party for my husband at my inlaws. We are throwing up some big white tents, table and chairs and ordering bbq for this one! We have a few weeks to finalize the guest list and get invitations out. I'm wanting to do a a teacher theme for the invitations and cake.

We leave for vacation a few days after his party and will be celebrating our 3 year anniversary this month also! Yay for June!

You better believe it will take me 6 months to plan the party of the year - Kendall's 1st Birthday!!! As of right now I'm planning on having this at my parent's home due to space. I've tossed around a few theme ideas and may or may not have already made a "vision board" file on my computer. I would love to type out everything I'm thinking and show you all the pictures in my vision board but I will save this for later. Just know it will be LEGEN... wait for it... DARY!

Okay maybe I will show one inspiration photo....
