My name is Ricki and I love planning parties. I actually like to plan them more than I like to attend them. Does that make me weird? Maybe a little but it's true. I love everything from planning the theme, food, location, entertainment to the small details including the serving dishes, party favors, color combos and table scape. 

I have no "formal" party planning training but I have a lot of formal experience in other areas. I worked in the film business for 12 years as a studio executive and producer, launched a series of personalized books for kids called "Change Is Strange", and then ran Ladies Who Launch in Boulder and Denver for several years.
