When it is birthday time, we like to do it right. Since my kids were little, we have had themed birthday parties. We love finding games, decorations and goodie bag goodies. We have had pirate parties, horse parties, spa parties, princess parties, swimming parties, don’t forget the mustache bash. Every party has been different and fun. This time, I got to have all the fun for my fiends and I. No kid parties, but a goodie bag that rivals all goodie bags. The last few months have been non stop training for the 1/2 marathon we ran last weekend. Since it has been a difficult task for all of us, I wanted to reward the girls with a little pre run goodie bag. Olivia’s Event Inspirations came to the rescue with some awesome running goods.About Olivia–
I am a mommy to a 9 year old daughter and a 1 year old son. They keep me on my toes and bring me a crazy amount of joy. We always seem to be on the go for dance, softball, or play dates. I am thankful I have the opportunity to work from home doing what I love so I am allowed the freedom to be the taxi driver for the kiddos.
I have worked several jobs from a movie theater, restaurant, and as an admin in corporate world. I still work as a server occasionally to get out of the house and have adult conversations. My main job now is working from home managing a few Etsy shops. The main one being Nana’s Party Palace. My mom and I started the shop in 2012 and it surpassed any expectations we had for it. We have been truly blessed. I am also working on expanding a sister shop – Nana’s Party Printables – which features coordinating digital downloads to accent your party! It is a work in progress…
I am always looking forward to helping plan events and help them stand out. It is one of my main passions and brings me much joy to make an event extra special. I look forward to inspiring others and being inspired!
I wanted something that wasn’t little girlie, but was useable. You know sometimes things are cute, but then what do you do with it? Well, I went practical and went with chapstick and zipper pulls. Olivia came up with the perfect design for me and my girls. We went with a cute silhouette running girl, but there are other running options.
My girls were so surprised and excited to receive their goodie bags! They loved the zipper pulls–we ended up using them as key chains, so cute! We all threw our chapstick in with our race gear so we would have it mid race when we needed it. Not only is the chapstick darling, but it is actually really good stuff! Our zipper pulls and chapsticks were personalized with 13.1, the miles we ran. I love that the zipper pulls can be used for so many different things. Hook it to a back pack, on your keys, as a necklace, as charm hanging from your rear view mirror, or hanging off your gym bag.
Olivia’s list of themes is ginormous! She has everything from tea parties to lady bugs. Peacocks to Girl Scouts. Spa to baby and everything in between! She does all different styles of necklaces, compact mirrors, gift bags, chapsticks, tins and zipper pulls– all of which are customizable! Yeah, you heard me right, customizable! Add party goers names, use your little ladies favorite colors, add your team name. These gifts are made just for you to share with your special friends!
