A Pram-ising Plan
My three year old daughter was born a day before the royal wedding of William and Kate. Born almost eight years after her brother, our precious R endeared herself to us the moment we set eyes on her. My bestfriend A (who had planned many parties with me) immediately thought of a Royal Themed Party for her baptismal reception. We screamed with glee and that was that!
In my earlier blog entry http://thebusyqueenp.com/diy-party-how-to-plan-a-successful-kiddie-party/ , I gave you tips on how to plan a small kiddie party. All the things I enumerated there also applies in planning for a big event. The big difference is preparations should be at least three months in advance and hiring a party planner/events organizer is a must. I have worked with four organizers in the past and I have stuck with one person that is as obsessive compulsive as I am and more importantly, who has the same taste level as I do. Decorating a hotel ballroom is no mean feat and you better make sure to hire somebody who can deliver.
Like No Other
Copying from another person’s party is not for me. I spend hours and hours looking for inspiration from the web and magazines and then collaborate with my party planner on how to execute my ideas.
A Tall Order
Ballrooms have high ceilings and your decor will have a greater impact if the (royal) trappings are from floor to ceiling.
The Royal Banquet
An Affair To Remember
In these trying times, some may raise their eyebrows at the perceived display of ostentatiousness. I will make no excuse or explanation for this very joyous occasion in our lives. My three month preparation, endless meetings with suppliers and the hours spent by my boys practicing for their number was all worth it! We are so blessed to have a wonderful addition to our family and we wish you our kind of happiness.
Until my next post!
