Does party planning start out like this for you?

You’re browsing Pinterest and Instagram and getting so excited about this year’s party!
But then the doubts creep in…

You have so many ideas, you’re not sure where to start.
Can you really DIY all these crafts and handle all the baking?
Will it look pulled together and professional or just lame?
What is a “have to do” and what’s a “nice to do”?
How much will it all cost?
Is it even possible to get your house “party-ready” in time?

Pretty soon, you’ve moved from excited to insecure, a little frantic, and very overwhelmed.
Of course you don’t want to spend a bunch of money on the wrong choices and be disappointed in the final result.

But if you’re not a professional event planner, how do you create an event that looks great and shows all your guests an amazing time?

what if, instead of making you worry, party planning were actually … fun?

After all, it’s a party you’re planning!

When you’re planning a party, wouldn’t you rather feel …

Energized as you discover how creative you really are?
Confident in your hostess skills?
Proud of an event that wows your guests?
Amazed by how easy this party was to pull off?
Thrilled when your child has a blast at the party you planned?

The Party Course makes party planning fun again.

I’m Jennifer Needham

Founder of The Party Teacher

I’ve helped hundreds of moms plan their children’s birthday parties. I am an Atlanta-based wife and mom of twin girls. Since 2011, I’ve been making it easier for moms to create parties their kids declare “the best ever!”

Before my daughters’ first birthday party, I did what thousands of moms do: I drove to the party store. I walked around and around, and left with a pack of paper plates and napkins, and a lot of disappointment. There was really almost nothing appealing in the store, and the design I settled on was not inspiring me. At all.

It took a few years of teaching myself everything I didn’t know that day in the party store, but by my daughters’ third birthday, guests were saying that I should be a party planner. I finally decided that my friends might be on to something.

Now, I’ve packaged everything I’ve taught myself into The Party Course, so you can plan the best birthday party ever.

What is standing in between you and your ideal party?

Maybe you’re here because you’ve never thrown a party, and you want to start out right, but you’re nervous about making the wrong choices.

Or maybe you’re here because you HAVE thrown a party, but it just didn’t turn out the way you imagined.

Or, maybe you’re here because you’ve got the party bug and you want to up your game.

When I talk to moms, there are six reasons I hear over and over about where they get hung-up on their party planning:

It’s too overwhelming to even start. I feel lost.
I’m not creative or crafty enough.
I’ve bought some stuff, but I’m not sure about any of it.
I don’t have the budget required for an impressive party.
I don’t have time to pull this off.
The house is a wreck, so I can’t possibly have a party at home.

Any of those ring true for you? Then know that you are NORMAL and you are NOT ALONE. I know, because I was there too, in 2006, when I was wandering around the party store, feeling lost.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Could you just teach yourself, the way I did?

You can do it yourself – I know, because that’s how I learned. But consider that it’s taken me 12 years of party planning to feel that I was expert enough to bring you this course.

Wouldn’t you like to shorten your learning curve and jump right to the part where you’re hosting amazing parties?

But what if I don’t have enough time?

If you’re already short on party planning time, adding one more thing to your list may feel like the opposite of what you need to do.

But, here’s what I’ve learned about taking highly-actionable courses: they give me focus. Once I’ve made the investment, I want to work through the material. The structure of the course and the homework assignments ensure that I’m working toward my goal.

The same is true of The Party Course. Yes, you will spend a few extra minutes each day watching the lessons and doing your homework. But the end result is that your party is planned, so in making time for the course, you’ve accomplished the goal you didn’t think you had time for. Win win.

Well, you’ve done it again! You made me look like a party genius!
