Hello! My name is Nicole and I am so happy you decided to swing by The Party Porch! Welcome! Grab your favorite drink and stay awhile. I have my venti iced americano from Starbucks in hand! Cheers!
At The Party Porch, you will find party styling inspiration, do it yourself party details, party supply resources, and everything it takes to create amazing and memorable celebrations! My love for party styling comes from all the little details that go into creating a unique, personal, and heart-felt event. I love incorporating sentimental touches and details to my parties. My life motto is; love is in the details! In addition to parties, I am also passionate about being creative with my kids, do it yourself projects and crafts, home décor, creative gift giving, holidays, and delicious recipes. You will find those topics sprinkled into The Party Porch as well.
If you are someone who appreciates the details in life, would like to learn the elements of putting together a memorable celebration, wants to be inspired and encouraged, is a DIY’er or wants to learn to DIY, and you are someone who likes to add loving, sentimental touches to your parties and everyday life, you will feel right at home at The Party Porch!
A little about me…
I am a wife, momma of two sweet, energetic boys, and parties are my passion and love language! For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved planning and creating celebrations. I think my love for parties and desire to make people feel special began when I was a little girl. My mom always had a way of putting so much love and sweet little details into birthdays and special occasions. I remember waking up on my birthday, and the kitchen would be decorated from top to bottom and a homemade birthday cake would be waiting for me. Those special memories I have are because of the loving little touches my mom put into making my day so memorable.
I have been married 12 years to a husband who is very supportive of my passion, even when I get a little party bossy if you know what I mean. ☺ Our two cutie-patootie boys keep us on our toes at all times! There is almost four years in between them so at times I feel pulled in many directions but I wouldn’t have it any other way. They are my world and I’m amazed every day at what they teach me about life and myself. As I said, parties are my love language and therefore when it comes to planning my sons’ parties, I can’t help but pour my heart and soul into their birthdays. My sons have become my little party-planning assistant. I love it! I am stay at home momma as well as working on building my business and blog. I believe as moms, we need something that makes us feel rejuvenated and inspired outside of motherhood. Follow your passion!
A few more facts about me; Target is my second home, I am a night owl (even more so after having children-it’s the only time I can get anything done!), I love using emojis, creating and crafting with my boys gives me so much joy, I make to-do lists for my to-do lists, I love a good inspirational quote, cute party supplies get me every time, I have quite the washi tape and spray paint collection going, I like things tidy and organized (although with two boys this is hard to do a lot of the time) ;), and Pinterest is my happy place! This past year I have lost 65 pounds and also got certified to teach Zumba! Zumba is my other passion in life, I love what it does for the mind, body and spirit! I am working on doing some fun Zumba parties! Who hoo! This year I also started a workshop along with my fellow party stylist BFF Goldie from Pretty Twinkle Party called Creative Girls Gather. A workshop dedicated to bringing creatives together in a fun party atmosphere, to create and connect together! See my blog post with all the details of our first workshop!
I am happiest when I am planning and creating. It feeds my soul! With my love to plan parties and creative spirit, party styling and planning is my true calling. I hope you enjoy sitting on my porch, The Party Porch, and share in my journey.
And since I love inspiring words, here is a quote that inspired me to start my blog and party styling business:
“Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step.”
Let’s be friends! Follow me along here!
Thanks so much for stopping by The Party Porch!
