Hi there! 


We absolutely LOVE hosting dinner parties for our family and friends. The key to having a successful event is to be as organized as possible. When you think and plan ahead, you can actually enjoy the time you are spending with your guests.


We have created a fun video to help you with one important part of any party: the drink station! If you become our fan on Facebook, you'll find that we throw out some useful tips and plenty of inspiration to get you on track to a memorable event. You can expect do-it-yourself, green projects, and guest bloggers when you visit our active blog each month.


With all of this party talk, you knew we were going to offer a discount on our "O Your Party" service, right? You'd be correct! Check out our offer below or just go ahead and schedule your urban organizing session online now. Thank you to those we have heard from who would like to contribute to our shoe drive. To make arrangements for a pickup, please email us.
