Who let the dogs out? We did!

Let’s be honest, we live in California where pups the size of tea cups spend the day in our purses, wear seat belts while riding shotgun and own more outfits than all my old dolls combined. It’s safe to say that we love them as though they were our children and for some, they are our children! Not matter what, we want what’s best for them and than means plenty of good food and exercise.

Gather some friends, family and volunteers to help walk and play with the dogs during events. Both 4-legged friends and humans will have fun!

Just recently I can across a flyer that was advertising the grand opening of a new workout studio in Palos Verdes. Along with the expected snacks and cocktails that make an appearance at most grand openings, this one added an unexpected twist. The studio was inviting the humans and their furry four-legged friends to swing by and enjoy an amazing workout. While we would be getting our sweat on, our fuzzy companions would be taken on an exciting walk around the area with their friends and trusted dog walkers. What a great idea!

Marriage Proposal Planning – is that cheating?

engagement_965788

Calling all Marriage Proposal Planners! Wait, what? That’s right. In case you haven’t heard, there exists a career where the job description is something along the lines of “planning the perfect proposal for you and your loved one”. I can see this turning into a huge part of the industry, don’t you? Basically, the Marriage Proposal Planner is in charge of coming up with the perfect proposal that will surprise and delight your partner. They promise to plan a unique and unforgettable way to surprise the ONE you will spend the rest of your life with.

So how much does the perfect proposal cost? Packages vary anywhere from $300 to $2000+ depending on how involved you want the Marriage Proposal Planner to be. They simply help you brainstorm and come up with the idea or they can take charge and do everything from ideas to booking to coordinating the entire love bird moment!

Would you consider it? Some might say this is cheating and that the one doing the proposing should think of an idea that will be meaningful to their partner. On the other hand, what if you just really aren’t the creative type?

Will this be a male dominated audience or will women give it a go? Only time will tell as this is still a newish type of planning. Welcome to the Special Events Industry Marriage Proposal Planners!

Happy Planning!
