How to Plan a Birthday Party for Twins

How to Plan a Birthday Party for Twins

I’m a mom of twin girls, so I know that planning two birthday parties in one can be a little overwhelming. And, if you have boy/girl twins, birthday party planning becomes that much more complicated. So I’ve rounded up my best ideas on how to plan a birthday party for...

My Parties: How to Style a Disco Birthday Party Your Teens will Love!

Do your kids ever have trouble choosing a birthday party theme? This year, as my twin daughters’ 17th birthday approached, they could NOT agree on a theme. They finally hit on the idea of a disco party, which was an idea I’d never would have come up with for them. But...

My Parties: Under the Stars Sweet 16 Surprise Party for Twins!

My Parties: Under the Stars Sweet 16 Surprise Party for Twins!

One of the reasons I offer online party planning services (like The Party Course and The Party Plan Club) instead working as a local event planner, is that I don't want to spend weekends away from my daughters, running birthday parties for other moms' kids but missing...

My Parties: How to Throw a Teen Girl’s Bowling Birthday Party

Here's the thing about 14-year-olds: they know what they want. And this year, my twin girls wanted a bowling birthday party / sleepover and they wanted their primary party color to be ginger. Allllright-y then. Bowling Party Invitation Fortunately for me, I found Jula...

My Parties: How to Host a Selfie Scavenger Hunt Birthday Party

When my twin girls were about to turn 11, they couldn't agree on a joint party theme ... like, at. all. But, I discovered there was one activity they could agree on. Apparently, it was very fun to swipe my phone and take selfies. I'd be looking for a photo, and all of...

My Parties: How to Throw a Horseback Riding Party

My girls' 12th birthday was in February, but we swiped an idea from a friend whose daughter also has a February birthday. We just moved their birthday to summer. That gave us the chance to pick from outdoor activities. That might only work for tweens or teens -- kids...

My Parties: Twins Top Ten Birthday Party (a Favorite Things Party)

My twins are now ten, which is just crazy to think about. I'm ready to shrink them back to three! But they are pretty darn excited about being double-digits and I guess I don't have much choice in the matter. We've always done joint birthday parties for the girls....

Blogging {Or Not} With Sick Kids

Blogging {Or Not} With Sick Kids

A Little Pie, A Little Snow, and Two Little Helpers

A Little Pie, A Little Snow, and Two Little Helpers

One of the best parts of running a children's party planning biz is that I can do so much of this work with my children. They brainstorm and vet party ideas. They put on first coats of paint. They look over my shoulder and say, "Pin that, mommy!" But there are times...

Sandy Hook: One Year Later

Sandy Hook: One Year Later

How Not To Take Your Christmas Card Photo

There's the Christmas card photo, and then there's what it took to get the Christmas card photo. A quick shoot, one afternoon post-school ... probably not the best idea. Mommy: Girls! Miss Lissette will be here at 3:30 to take your photos. You need to run upstairs and...

Guest Party: Boy Girl Twins Prince & Princess First Birthday Party

Guest Party: Boy Girl Twins Prince & Princess First Birthday Party

As a mom of twins, I have it fairly easy when it comes to birthdays. Two birds with one stone and all that. I get to be a little more extravagant than I might be for a party of one. And of course, it's all made easier because I have two of the same sex. The challenge...
