My creative arts and crafts, my creative thoughts, the invitations, party favors and decorations are where it all began for me. As with my own parties for my two children (birthdays, baptisms, graduation, etc.), I always had a theme for the occasion, and I followed suit. Also, the gifts I made for the occasion were real gifts people seen and admired.
Soon later or at the party, they would ask me to make and how much I charge. Then came the decorating of parties of all occasions. What made it great for me was hearing the compliments, comments and the questions they would ask the party doer, like "Where did u..." or "Who made the...". I was close and in the mix, they were family or close family friends' parties.
Then, it was by word of mouth that I got my business rolling. I introduced myself to them and set up my appointments and the date of event, covering all the details. What was so great for me was they knew what they wanted already because they had seen the beautiful crafts, arrangements and colors at a party I did. Themes, arrangements, quantity and colors are all I need. It's simple and fun.
I thank God for the gift he blessed me with, and I also want to be a blessing to others. I was a packaged deal; I did it all from A to Z, and they appreciated that.
