I believe that every occasion, big or small, should be celebrated.
It is so lovely to meet you! I’m Allison Carter, and I’m one of those people that has always loved a party. I just like bringing people together. Being the host, being a guest, doesn’t matter-I hear party, and I’m ready to roll.
I am a work at home mom to two insanely adorable and hilarious peanuts, Evie and Hudson. They make me laugh harder than I ever have before, but are also the reason why I haven’t finished a hot cup of coffee in four years. My husband, Ryan, and I are high school sweethearts. One day in English class, I turned around to see this kid staring at me, and once he took me for a spin in his red truck, it was all downhill from there.
I am a former elementary school teacher, but once I had my sweet baby girl, I knew those days were over for me. She had my heart, my attention, and all my energy so I knew my new path was being a stay at home mom. Before I knew it, her first birthday was rapidly approaching and that meant it was time to party. This was it-the big event!
The planning of that event? An epic fail. How did all these moms all over Instagram make it look so easy? I had my Pinterest board planned months in advance, I tested recipes, DIY decorations were everywhere, and I had never felt so stressed out in my life. I was not feeling great…and the reason I was overwhelmed to the max? I didn’t have a detailed plan and checklist set for myself. I did enjoy my baby girl turning one. The party was great. I also forgot to put deodorant on and cried in the bathroom like a baby because my baby was getting too big. I vowed that next time would be different. And it was! I found the secret sauce for Evie’s second party. I went into it with a plan. Super detailed, everything in place, and the party planning process was night and day. Now, I plan every party, both for me and hundreds of women around the world, with this same method, and it works everyime. And just so you know, despite the stress and those minor emotional meltdowns, Evie’s first birthday was a beautiful day, full of loved ones and happy memories…but it could have gone a lot smoother!
Fast forward 3 years, and here I am with another baby, starting an online party planning business. I want to help busy women like myself save some time and energy.
I realized through my years of planning parties, that having a clear plan and checklist are the key to success. My party plans are here to take the work out of the planning. Let me do all the heavy lifting for you! Sometimes we need to delegate something to someone else so we can relax and watch Bravo.
You with me?
I want you to enjoy life’s celebrations and make memories with your loved ones because that’s the whole point of having a party!
