Save On Catering

I attended a fantastic webinar yesterday morning put on by the National Association of Catering Executives.  The speaker gave all the attendees a fantastic tip on saving on catering costs.  There’s a website called  You submit an event and local caterers submit bids that fit within your budget!  How awesome is that?  It’s quick and super easy.  You have the option to set the timeline of how long you’ll accept bids from 14 days to 90 days!

I submitted a couple of events (total time – 10 minutes) that are coming up and there appears to be high quality caterers that are bidding on catering the event.  This could save THOUSANDS for your wedding or event!  You can be as specific as you want in your bidding process and your personal information is not shown.  Other caterers can see what each have offered to you for your event which makes it even more competitive.  Give it a try!

1st Birthday

My daughter is turning 1 in less than 2 months!  How fast time flies.  So, I’m planning her big birthday party and trying to not make it overly extravagent.  Catering will be done by one of the vendors I work with – Fresh & Fabulous.  Magda makes awesome food and I’m excited to see what she’s going to be offering as options.

The color scheme?  Abby Cadabby colors! 

I love this tutu outfit and I’m debating whether or not my daughter will actually wear it.  I know it would look super cute on her though!


Finally, my wonderful brother will be designing cupcake toppers! Well, I’ll be the one who gets to print them out and cut them but he’ll design them.  These toppers are being used for inspiration.

Well, that’s all I have for now.  I love planning…
