We plan our children’s birthday parties as a way of saying, “I love you. I’m so glad you were born!”
But party planning also can be overwhelming. So many choices, so little time. How can you make it special?
Let me help.
The Party Teacher makes birthdays easy.
You CAN create a party without …
- Breaking the bank.
- Going to the same old bouncy-gym-game-pizza place.
- Buying every licensed character item in the party store.
- Stressing out because Pinterest gave you too many ideas.
- Turning yourself inside out trying to do it all.
Make your party something your child will always remember because YOU made the party. If you’re a busy mom who knows WHAT you want but not HOW to get there, I can give you a road map.
Let’s lessen your workload and double your fun. Because birthday parties should be more than just amazing decorations and dessert tables. They should be — you know — about your child. They should be fun.
My parties have been featured in magazines and leading party sites, including Scholastic Parent & Child, Bird’s Party Magazine, Hostess With The Mostess, Kara’s Party Ideas and more! I’m a member of Martha Stewart’s Dreamers Into Doers and the Children’s Party Network. In 2012 and 2013, I was named to the Circle of Moms Top 25 Party Planning Moms under my former business name, Double the Fun Parties.
But here’s what’s more important than those qualifications. Here’s what moms are saying.
“Thoroughly impressed with the thoughtfulness and organization that was put into this party plan! Every detail was thought of and a complete plan of action was put forth. I truly appreciate the budget friendly ideas you offered as alternatives. Thank you!”
— Jamie, emailing about a party plan
“What I still owe you is a big thank you. Andrea was so happy with her party…. I would never have done a party in my home without you. I hope we are able to work on something together for Andrea in the future. It will be difficult to top it but I know you can do it.”
— Elizabeth, emailing about a custom party plan
“Beautiful [bunting] sent quickly, better than you would even picture … Having a garden party Peppa pig !!! Perfect table dressing!”
— Debbie, emailing about a fabric bunting
I am an Atlanta-based wife, mom and children’s party planner. Between my twin girls, and a full-time job, I am wack-a-doodle busy most of the time. When I’m sitting still, I’m pretty sure I’m forgetting to do something. Sound familiar? But party planning is one thing I always seem to be able to find time for. (Yes, I’ve been known to stir spaghetti sauce, add a coat of paint to some party favors, stir the sauce again …)
With this kind of schedule, you’d think that a commercial party store would be just my speed. Run down the aisle, pop it in the cart. But they turn me off. Like Snoopy’s Christmas tree in A Charlie Brown Christmas, it’s just too commercial for me.
So I started creating my own birthday parties — joint birthday celebrations designed to make two very different girls happy. After a few years of my friends saying, “You should be a party planner,” I decided they might be onto something! I have been planning and hosting events since 2006. Inspired by my own twins, I founded Double the Fun Parties in 2011. In 2015, I rebranded to The Party Teacher, to reflect a renewed commitment to educating moms about how to party like a pro. Give me a shout. I would love to help make your child’s party dreams a reality!
