How To Plan The Best Party Ever!

Last week I wrote a post about my 2019 meet and greet party for my senior spokesmodels and how amazing it was but today I want to write about how I planned and executed it! A Lot of different details and planning went into this day to make it amazing! The first thing I needed to do with my intern's help was to plan out every detail, talk over how we wanted the day to go, what we wanted to do for games, the backdrop, props for photos, food, and many other things.

For games, we decided to do giant Jenga, corn hole, lawn darts, and a fun game that we played at my 2018 teams Christmas party. This required you to blow up a balloon and let the air out to blow plastic cups off of the table, each person has eight cups and the first person to blow all eight off the table wins! This was a very fun game that gave us an abundance of laughs. Each of these games took some preparation. Giant Jenga required us to go to the hardware store and get 2X4s to make the pieces and then sand each piece down to make them smooth. We were lucky to already have the lawn darts and corn hole but we had to dig them out of the garage and find a place in the yard to set it up.

The backdrop that we used for photos was an old sheet that I had laying around the house and the design was hand painted! This backdrop was super simple and inexpensive to make. I had the supplies around the house already but if you don't have a sheet or paint you can get a bed sheet from the thrift store for 2-3 dollars and acrylic paint for fifty cents at Walmart..

I decided to make flower crowns and buy some cute props to take photos with to make it a little more fun! I will leave a link to a video that I made about how to DIY your own flower crown so that you can make one yourself! I also had out fake DIY flower bouquets and a few single fake roses so that the girls could have fun with their photos!

Flower crowns that are handmade are the best!

For food, I decided to go simple and make burgers for everyone so that they could make it the way they like it and had Mac and Cheese on the side for one of my girls who is a vegetarian and I had a gluten-free option for another girl who is allergic to gluten. When you plan an event like this make sure that you ask your attendees if they are allergic to anything so that you can make sure you have an option for them! I also had lemonade and mango tea which we ended up mixing together to give it a good taste and a pretty pink color which looked amazing in the mason jars that we used as drinking glasses.

Mason jars as drinking glasses give a really nice touch.

Thank you so much for reading I hope you enjoyed this post and if you decide to use any of these ideas for a party of your own make sure you tag me @divinecreationsbymaggie or use the #divineparty so that I can see all of the amazing things that you make!

The 2019 Meet And Greet Overview

On June 23’rd 2018 I had my 2019 Divine Senior Spokesmodel Team meet and greet party. The idea behind the meet and greet is to get all of the girls together in one place to meet each other and have fun as a team to kick off the year. We had a giant Jenga, a hand-painted backdrop for photos, tea and lemonade in mason jars, and a tournament style game of balloon cups! This is my first year doing a meet and greet and it was exactly how I pictured it going! All of my girls had a total blast and just clicked with each other! I have no doubt that by the end of the year they will be the best of friends.

I could not have pulled this off without the help of some amazing people! My amazing husband who ran all of the errands with me, and let me spend some extra money to have some pretty details, and helped me sand down all of the Jenga pieces. Next my amazing grandma for letting me host this event at her home, helping me with food and sand down those Jenga pieces. Next my amazing sister for helping with the Jenga pieces and for showing my intern how to film the event. Lastly my amazing intern Cheyenne! She did so much like helping me paint the backdrop, bringing decorations, helping me stay organized, blowing up balloons, filming footage for my youtube video, and taking behind the scenes photos. I could not have pulled this off without her and I am so blessed to have her as apart of my business!

Now it's time to enjoy some of the beautiful images that I got to capture of my team during the party! I hope you have a divine day!
