Party Planning Help Is Here!

So often we receive messages from stressed out parents who have left ordering sweets a little too late.

While sometimes we can help, more often than not, we’re already fully booked. This can create un-necessary anxiety during a time that should be fun-filled and joyful.

However, planning a Party doesn’t have to be stressful. With this simple and thoughtful timeline checklist, you can ensure you are fully prepared and keep PPS to a minimum.

We decided to add it to our website so you can keep it handy as a reference for future events;
