I Could Be a Party Planner

My wedding planner is a passive-aggressive nitwit who has the audacity to question my taste in music. Bob Seger is not “so over.”-The O.C.

I have a lot of free time on my hands right now. I know that’s not going to last once Piglet gets here. I also know that eventually he (and hopefully a future sibling) will end up in school, and I will once again have free time. It makes me daydream about what I’d like my future career to be.

I absolutely love planning parties and events. I think it would be really fun to be a party and event planner someday. I’d order event supplies and concession machines, help people plan their perfect event. I think weddings would be fun, even if I had to deal with a bridezilla or two. I just love all the little details that go into a party, from the favors, to the specialty drinks, to the decorations.

I think another fun thing about party planning would be hopefully working with larger budgets that I do for my own parties. I usually try to do everything for little to no cost, which means they’re not quite as cool as they could be. To have a budget to work with would be a dream come true! I think I would have way too much fun planning themed parties, events, the perfect wedding, you name it! And I’d get to be a part of someone’s special day. How cool would that be?

Do you ever daydream about starting a new career? If so, what would it be?

    If you lived near me and became a party planner, I’d hire you! I find organizing even the smallest occasions a bit stressful, and I end up in knots leading up to the event. A party planner would be perfect for me! 🙂

    It would be fun to plan a party that had a huge budget. I was the Activities Chair for church for a while so was planning activities and parties for our congregation of 200+ people– but the budget was always tight.

    I dream about switching careers ALLLLLLLLL the time 😉 I think my ideal job would be as a travel writer. Or I’d love to work with animals somehow (perhaps at a sanctuary)… yes, it’s one of my favorite things to daydream about.

    I can totally see you as a party planner. You would be perfect for that job. You sure you wouldn’t mind dealing with some bridezillas?!

Your comments make my day!
