Thank you for dropping by. Let me tell you a little about myself and my blog. I am a father of eight girls. Can you believe it? They are all grown up now, but as you can imagine, we've had many family celebrations over the years. We always seem to be holding parties - birthdays, coming of age, engagements, weddings, baptisms and sometimes a shindig for no reason at all! In the early days, we didn't have much money, so I became a master planner over the years. Now that we have grandchildren, I am still left in charge! I actually really love it, and my wife and I are always looking through magazines and Internet clips for new, exciting ideas. I have decided to document the most interesting ideas in this blog in order to inspire others when planning their special occasions. Please enjoy. Cheers all!
