My First Blogiversary Party

June 2016 marked my first year of blogging, and I’m so excited to share the party I put together for my close family, friends, and readers. Thank you to everyone who attended and to all of you who have helped and supported me along the way. If you have read my blog even one time, it means the world to me.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to have had Kendra Scott in Chicago host my Blogiversary (yup, that’s right, blogging + anniversary = Blogiversay!); I knew that we were a perfect match, from the store’s color scheme, bubbling personalities of the workers, and the impressive jewelry.

I grew up with a mom who was, and still is, the queen of hostessing and throwing parties, and I inherited that hostessing gene. I love throwing parties and dressing up, so I figured my blogging anniversary was as good a time as any to start planning.

The #1 Thing to Ignore on Invitations

You sort through the mail, just like every day – bill, bill, junk, credit card application, bill, junk, hand-written letter. Oooh, now we’re talking! You excitedly open your letter to find an invitation and you do one of three things:

1. Check your calendar and realize you’re free;

2. Check your calendar, realize you’re free, but you do not want to go;

3. Check your calendar and realize you have a conflict.

From personal experience and from the experience of my family and friends, I have noticed a bothersome trend with party invitations. Whether it’s for a wedding, birthday party, engagement celebration, shower, or anything in between, what always happens in the weeks leading up to the main event? As a hostess, you’re stuck with a long list of no replies that you have to awkwardly hunt down. That’s why the number one thing you should ignore on invitations is the RSVP date.
