As I make my debut into the world of blogging, I can't help but think back to just a few short years ago when I swore to myself I wasn't going to get caught up in this phenomenon called 'Blogging'. I managed to avoid it, or so I thought, until this past summer.
So what happened you ask? My youngest son's 1st birthday is what happened. You see this party was special to me... first, I love designing & hosting parties; second, he's my baby; and probably most important ~ it might be the last time I get to host a 1st birthday party... so it had to be spectacular, to say the least.
I knew exactly what I wanted (in my head anyway) and since it wasn't something I was going to find at the local party supply store the quest was on to find it elsewhere. Naturally I turned to google and during this process I discovered this wonderful world known as blogging... this same world that I had sworn off in prior years. Why did I do that???
Blogs as it turns out where nothing more than 'interactive' websites that provided me with more ideas than I could contain. I also felt a connection with the writers of the various blogs I followed, definitely something I've never felt with any website. So I searched, I read and I followed... learning and discovering more and more with each passing day.
Time of course was of the essence, since I did have a date set for the party, and even though I was bombarded with ideas, none of them matched what was in my head. Then it hit me ~ I'm going to design it myself! Why not? I have been following several other ladies who design parties and are quite successful at it. In fact, I have dreamed of having a party planning business of my own since I was in my teens.
So I did, it was spectacular, the guests all raved and I felt more accomplishment and pride than I have in any job I've ever worked. Which brings me back to my debut into the world of blogging. You see, since last October I have been busy creating a little party design company for myself ~ Party NV ~ and while it is a great play on words, it actually stands for Party N(ico) and V(incent)... the two other greatest accomplishments in my life!
Well, here I am, ready to take on the world one party at a time and blogging about it all the way! Over the next few weeks I'll share more about me and how I got here as well as what I've done over the past few months, including the famous 1st birthday. For now, I'll leave you with this... it was a Vintage Medieval Prince theme!
