PPP Day 2: You Can't
That's me! And you can't be me! (Trust me, you don't really want to be me, anyway. I'm a shade too "real" for the general public). You can't plan a party like me. You can't make decorations like me. You can't think like I do. Because you are not me.
And you are not anyone on "Hostess with the Mostess" or "Kara's Party". Or whoever created the Pinterest pin you see every time you are browsing. You probably don't do this for a living. You probably don't have unlimited funds. You definitely don't have unlimited time. And those are all good things.
Because you see-you shouldn't be striving for their perfect, or even my perfect. Those limitations will force you to think outside the box. Use those images and ideas as springboards. But stop trying to imitate and start to create. And I don't mean just party decorations. Create your own concept of "party"-one that exactly fits your certain situation or purpose. Why are *you* having a party?
So just remember: you can't. You can't throw a party like anyone but you. But you can plan a perfect party: one that exactly fits your situation and purpose. And that's a good thing, just perfect.
This is Day 2 of "31 Days of Perfect Party Planning". You can find the rest of the series here.
