How to easily plan a party | Free printable

posted in: DIY Party Planning | 0

Even though I love planning weddings because of their grand designs, I also love planning intimate dinner parties and birthday bashes. I realize it isn’t always feasable to pay a party planner for these smaller events, so I designed this one-page printable party planner. It is easy to use and a great resource to keep track of everything party-related. Get ready for your party to be the talk of the town!¬†




So, what’s the hardest part about party planning?


“No one RSVPs anymore!”

“My ideas don’t match my budget!”

“I don’t know what I need to accomplish the look I want!”

“I just can’t stay organized!”


Are you ready to stop feeling these frustrations?

Then you need my favorite party planning tool!

In this free party planning tool, you will find…

-a timeline that gives you a generous amount of time to plan your party and not forget any of the important party elements

-space to keep all your party planning ideas so you don’t go crazy trying to keep track of multiple sheets of paper

-a budget tracker so you know how much you have to spend

-a guest list so you know who’s coming, who hasn’t rsvp’d, and who needs a thank you card once it’s all over

-‘to do’ lists for the week leading up to the party so you aren’t frantically finishing up as your guests arrive

Princess Party

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Annette from Our Child’s Advocate. I volunteered to help with a fundraiser she was planning, which turned out to be such a fun event! Dine with Cinderella combined two of my favorite things: Disney Princesses and a good party! I was so happy to provide the balloon decor for this event. I can’t wait to work together again!

The stage was set with a huge balloon castle and drawbridge entry!

This provided a “wow” moment for the guests as soon as they arrived at the event!

The event was held at the Hellenic Cultural Center in Westland, MI. It is such a beautiful event space, to begin with, but once you add pink and sparkles, it really comes to life! Inside the room, I built several balloon columns and two helium balloon arches over the dance floor. I also scattered balloons around the dance floor for the children to play with and toss around.

Did I mention there would be multiple princesses attending the event?! Princesses by Bianca pulled off an amazing performance!
