Greetings from Simply Social Event Design! The day has finally come for me to start my blog! Those of you that know me know that I have been talking about this for quite a while. Well, it's a new year and I am so excited! 2009 brought some AMAZING events my way and I know that 2010 is going to be even better! I got to travel to Aruba to do a destination wedding for a client. It was absolutely amazing! I also fulfilled one of my life long dreams! I got to plan a wedding for a client in New York City at the Mandarin Oriental! It was incredible! I was able to work with vendors that I had always dreamed of working with - don't worry! We will cover both of these events in great detail later... I am soooo blessed! My dream of Simply Social Event Design is finally a reality!

As you all know, the Julie / Julia Project turned out to be a huge success and after I saw the movie, I was totally inspired. I thought, "why can't I do a blog for 365 days about parties?" So, here we are... The plan is that every day for 365 days I am going to blog about my absolute FAVORITE subject - PARTIES!!! Parties of all kinds... Weddings, birthday parties, baby showers, wedding showers, anniversaries and any other kind of celebration that I might come up with! It's going to be a lot of fun!

A friend recently shared an ancient proverb with me that I found so true! "Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance!" SOOOO TRUE! Just because times are tough and we are all cutting back doesn't mean we can't still have fun! We just have to find fun and creative ways to do that! So, I hope this blog will inspire you to find reasons to entertain and to do it with GREAT STYLE!!!

My hope is that each day I can share with you something fun and exciting related to hosting a event. I will be featuring events that I work on exclusively, ideas that I find online or in print, ideas shared with me by those in the industry and just any other cool things I come across in the research I do on a daily basis. Also, each week I will be featuring a vendor that I work with directly whether that be a great florist, a super cool dj or band, a fabulous linen company or a delicious cake designer I know. This is going to be lots of fun! It will always happen on Tuesdays - "Tuesday's Trends!" Vendors will be featured each week and will showcase what they are working on and will discuss the trends that they are seeing in their area of expertise. So, get excited about that too!

2010 is going to be a great year and I am really looking forward to this project! So, please share this blog with your friends or anyone you might think will enjoy it! Also, if you have any ideas or suggestions, please feel free to share them with me! I want to hear your comments!!! I am always open to new and great ideas.... This will definitely be a work in progress but I am sooooo excited to see where it goes! So, join me on this journey; It's going to be a great one!
