I have a party planning problem

Yep. It's a Triple-P kind of problem. With a capital P. Which rhymes with T. Which stands for trouble. Right here in River City...

But I digress.

Back to the Party Planning Problem. I can't stop myself. Once a month I find myself excited about whatever holiday or season is around the corner and I start the day dreaming...

I day dreaming of food. Adorable cadbury cupcakes, mini-carmel apples, balsamic berry salads, fancy cheese plates, bite sized pizza, french toast muffins. (Things like this do not help.)

I day dream of decorations. Glitter and baloons and candles and twinkle lights and mustache banners and giant spider-webs and heart streamers and table settings.

I day dream of party games. Pin the mustache, decorate the cookies, treasure hunts, celebrity, charades, cheese or font?

Pinterest does not help.

I can usually resist the call for about a month, but by the time the next month rolls around I just can't help it any more. And THAT is why I end up throwing parties every other month. In October we had a pumpkin carving part. In December I hosted a Christmas craft exchange.

And now its February and it is taking every ounce of me not to do something for Valenties. Or even Presidents! Anyone can throw a Valentine's Party, I want to throw a President's Day Celebration! It'll be like Independence Day in February! Let's see... Red, white and blue food... Angel food cake with strawberries obviously... Blue corn chips with white bean salsa and peach mango salsa... I wonder what the president's favorite foods are?... Now decorations... I could fill all the frames in the house with pictures of different presidents! and of course there will be streamers, lots of streamers... Wait, do I want to do February? Maybe I should wait for St. Patricks! We could do a potato theme!!....

Do you see what I mean?!?! I'm already disappointed that I can't throw both of those parties.

And you know what else? I'm not sorry. I love parties. I love seeing people come together and have a good time and I love introducing all of the interesting wonderful people that I know to each other.


  1. ...and you always throw good parties! Hope your Valentine's is lovely.
