After several parties hosted at my apartment--both current and past--I realized that I am a very happy hostess. I love organizing parties. Planning everything from music and hors d'oeuvre, to decorations and outfits (for myself) makes me really excited.
And fact: I am a very organized person. I'm OCD in almost everything I do; and I won't stop until I'm satisfied. I've also realized that every party I throw, I try to up the ante. What once started as just mixing cocktails turned into baking cupcakes and covering strawberries with chocolate and sprinkles. At first, we (my roommates and I) threw regular parties, but now that's not enough. Now our parties come with a theme. Anything goes, Halloween, Christmas, hats or the most recent, Fire & Ice.
Anyways, I've decided to start thinking about becoming a party planner, even if it's just on the side. Plus, it doesn't hurt to just think about it right?
