Party and event planning is my dream job and I absolutely love it. I get to meet fun people, work on creative projects and there’s never a dull moment. But every once in a while things get a little, well, weird. When I used to live in Austin there was a motto around town: Keep Austin Weird. That gave me the idea to share some of the weirdest things I’ve done and experienced as a party planner. Here we go…
I dumpster dive and have picked up many things from the side of the road. Believe it or not, this is how I came across some of my best Christmas decorations.
I’ve driven around town with a skeleton in the back of my van.
I went to a puppy themed birthday party. For a dog. Named Armani.
I hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas with a 10 week old newborn. This might not be weird, more like “What in the world was I thinking!?”
I found the best place to rent a giant wagon wheel.
I saved every issue of Martha Stewart Living from 1999-2006…and then threw them all away during a move. IDIOT!
So, no matter how strange weird or unusual, I’ve pretty much seen it all. You can count on The Party Buss to take care of your event, no matter how bizarre the requests.
