Happy Friday and hello long weekend!!

As I was sitting on my couch last night working (because yes, I work all day and then come home and work some more!) I realized that I have the best job in the world! Getting to take peoples ideas and dreams and turn them into reality! Does it really get any better than that?

I am working on quite a few projects right now and going a million miles per hour but one project that I am having SO much fun with is a spa themed baby shower (Poolside!) I mean who wouldn't want to attend? Complete with facials, massages, manis and pedis..... I am starting to get a bit jealous myself!

This is such a fun and entertaining theme that you could do for many occasions! What about your daughters next birthday party or for that next bachelorette party you are helping to plan? There are so many cute ideas you can incorporate such as custom robes, monogrammed headbands, stylish flip flops and so much more!

Next time you are wanting to pamper your guests a little bit... keep this SPA-tacular theme in mind and have a little fun!

Hello World!!

Welcome to Farthing Events!! Wow....I can hardly believe it! It seems like yesterday that I was dreaming up the idea of opening my own event planning business and BOOM its here! Now...let me tell you hasn't been "that" easy! A lot of planning, praying, support, sweat and tears has gone into it all! AND now, most exciting of all, I am writing my first blog post!! (go easy on me now!!)

I couldn't think of anything more appropriate to write about than the fabulous fiesta event that I am currently planning for a beautiful husband and wife to be! What a fun way to celebrate an engagement in style and SAS!!! So... you might think throwing a "fiesta" is quite easy..... some sombreros, a few paper flowers, a bucket of Corona and we're good right? Well, if you want to take your event up a notch try throwing in a few of these touches!! How about hiring a Mariachi band or throwing in a signature sangria drink? What about hiring in a chef to cook an authentic Mexican cuisine? Or choose to let loose and incorporate pinatas into the party decor.....your guests are bound to have a great time! And oh yah..don't forget the "complimentary" flip flops for those guests who thought they would be able to samba in their stilettos!!
Until next time, Salud!!
