A Lucky Life kind of Party

I have thrown many parties, but I must say that my husbands party was the least stressful one that I have had in a long time. What made the difference...for this party I used a Lucky Life Parties Kit! Danielle from Lucky Life creates download-able party kits for all kinds of occasions. It was so nice to have "someone else" do all the prep work for me.

For Al's birthday I used the Dinner Party for Eight kit which included:
  • menu
  • bar menu with signature drink (alcoholic and non-alcoholic)
  • shopping lists
  • party timeline and checklist 
  • step by step guidelines
  • playlist suggestions
  • recipes
  • fun tips and advice
  • decor ideas
  • basic printable invitations
What I loved about this kit first of all is that I felt like Danielle was right there giving me instructions with her fabulous sense of humor.  I could really make everything in this guide suite our needs, tweek it here and there...perfecto! The dinner recipes were delicious and I am sure the dessert recipes were as well, but since this was a birthday party I baked Al's favorite cake instead. I can't even begin to explain how wonderful this kit made my life.

Al is fond of Asian inspired decor, so instead of a flower arrangement I used pots of bamboo along with candles

Homemade 3 layered carrot cake with cream cheese frosting

 Instead of decorating the cake with piped frosting I purchased these great custom cake flags from Go Against The Grain in Al's favorite color scheme, yellow and gray. I am totally crushing on these flags now!

The next time you are getting ready to plan a party whether it is for 8 people or 25 I strongly suggest checking out Lucky Life Party Kits. As for the favors...well Party Starters of course!

Thanks for stopping by!
