She also has a rather non-lucrative Master of Fine Arts in poetry.EXCERPT FROM THE BOOKNow on to the fun part: picking a theme. There are so many themed kits out there, from pirates to princesses to Pink Poodle in Paris, that you can be sure youll have all the necessary accoutrements to make your party tres chic. The invitations will set the tone, so be sure to make them as colorful and exciting as possible. Many websites offer free or inexpensive print-your-own invitationsyou just type or write in the date, time, and address. Other sites allow you to upload your own images onto high-quality cardstock that theyll print and send to you.As for decor, you can go do-it-yourself or store-bought- whichever is easier. Lets say youre planning a Batman-themed party. Its easy to stencil and cut out the Batman symbol in different sizes using black and yellow construction paper, and you can blow up black, yellow, and white balloons to display around the room.If your son or daughter (why not?) wants to dress up, there are tons of Batman costumes available. For party favors, you can tie each balloon to a Batman action figure that each kid can bring home with them. And theres a lot to be said for Batman cupcake toppers.Buy a copy to keep reading!CHAPTER OUTLINEPlanning the Perfect Birthday+ Introduction+ How to Plan a Fabulous Birthday Party—No Matter the Age+ Mistakes to Avoid+ Tips & Tricks+ ...and much more
