Do you ever have days where you wake up and can't believe this is your life? Because for the last few months, that's how I've been feeling. I wake up every morning feeling like the luckiest girl in the world because all I do is think about parties and party related things all day long. I honestly cannot think of anything more fun, and this is my job?!? Job doesn't seem like the right word for it.
Don't get me wrong, I am exhausted. I have been running full tilt with my business, and this might be the most manic "job" I have ever had, but I am loving every second. Highlights of the last month include getting a package in the mail containing ten pounds of candy, manning my booth at the Fall Fair (not to mention actually going to the Fall Fair. I love living in this town!), and painting my office walls glitter! How can anyone be unhappy when they go to work in a room that looks like a unicorn threw up on the walls?? Seriously, it is so beautiful.
I've also spent a ton of time lately speaking to people and exploring event venues all over the place. Yesterday, I got to go on a guided tour to what might be one of the most beautiful sites in town for photos. I've got road trips planned to Cranbrook and beyond to meet new vendors, and to tour venues I've never been to before. It is all so exciting, and every little thing just means I can offer something extra for the next party, which is so exciting.
This job is the best job ever, and I just feel so lucky every single day. I cannot wait to see what is coming!! I look forward to continuing to find the event in every day, and living life like it's a party!!
If you know you, me you know September is basically my favourite month of the whole year, followed closely by December. September is my birthday month, and I dedicate the entire thirty days to reminding everyone I know that I am turning thirty (again). Now September is going to be even better than before because in addition to my birthday, and my wedding anniversary, I also get to dive head first into Christmas planning!!!
I am so excited to introduce a very special offer for Christmas party season! I am here to revamp your Christmas party, and I am ready to start thinking of tinsel and lights and presents right this minute. You might not quite be thinking about those things yet, and maybe you don't want to, but that is exactly where I come in.
I spent the last decade working in various Federal Government departments, and I know from experience how the Christmas party planning process goes. To help you visualize it, I've written a poem:
‘Twas November eleventh, and in every office,
Bosses are singing the very same chorus;
“We’ve been so busy, I completely forgot,
To plan the Christmas party like I know I ought;
I want to say thanks to every team member,
They work so hard, January to December,
We need a Christmas party, something that is fun,
Can you please plan something and still get your work done?”
So you sigh and agree, what else is there to do?
This office Christmas won’t be ruined by you!
You start making calls to the usual places,
Somehow this happens in all your workplaces.
Every restaurant is completely booked up,
There are no tables, not even room to stand up;
The party can’t happen ‘til January next year,
And when it does, it’ll be the same burgers and beer.
If only you’d had help in booking this bash,
For not too much money and not too much cash,
Next year, you vow, it won’t happen this way,
All the last minute planning has made you cray-cray!
You approach your boss, and say without hesitation,
"Next year we’re getting AM Event Coordination!
They’ve got a super awesome Christmas party deal,
They’ll revamp our party, from the games to the meal!
If you want to thank me for working all year,
Let me attend without planning, am I being clear?!”
For a very low and reasonable fee,
Give your staff a break, leave the planning to me;
Let me revamp your old Christmas celebration,
To really thank your team for all their dedication.
They’ll be so impressed, they might even work harder,
And you can take credit for their newfound ardour.
So send me an email or give me a call,
Let’s make this a fun Christmas party for all!
(Who knew that in addition to planning awesome events, I am also a poet?)
So this year, instead of letting your staff plan the same old party off the corner of their desk, let me help to revamp what you've been doing. I can help you by coming up with new and fun ideas, booking the venue, caterer and anything else you need, setting up the party, organizing games, prizes, and an agenda for the party if you want one, managing the budget other logistics. All for only $150*! But you'll have to book now to get your preferred dates and locations! So don't be a Scrooge, give me a call, or click the link below to get started!
