Deep Thoughts by Party MOMster

Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome. – Arthur Ashe

The party favors and decorations my staff and I create wouldn’t make it into Martha Stewart’s magazine. And I wish I could claim I never strived for that, because there was a time that I did. But, as I was shooing away one of my young housemates from a party creation, I had an epiphany (I was a little creeped out at myself, too). I was celebrating to make them feel special. To make them happy. Wasn’t I? Excluding them from being a part of the preparation wasn’t fair if it made them happy.

So, I took a deep breath and let go. My staff and I have been working together ever since. And crooked lettering, enormous amounts of stickers and the overuse of glue have become a Party MOMster trademark.
But, I treasure the collaboration and their enthusiasm for celebrating — EVERYTHING! There will be a time when I will be working alone again. They will likely move on from the Party MOMster organization to other endeavors. Or the student may surpass the teacher, and we will create magazine worthy party favors some day. So, perfection may be in my future.

But, for now, I will bumble along with my crew having a good time along the way. Party MOMster universal truth: If you let fun and happiness guide you, your celebrations will always be a success.
