A Party by Penelope: Events and Party Planner

Today’s blog guest is Penelope, events organiser and party planner, Lady P as we call her. And here she is in her own words to tell you all about her business:

Penelope SummersHello Gorgeous Readers,

My name is Penelope and I am a London-based event and party planner. I am also a lover of great food and travel, which I find often go hand in hand. Deliciousness all round!

I started my business, A Party By Penelope, at the beginning of this year because I wanted to do something I adore. I love organising.  I love planning.  And I LOVE bringing people together and ensuring they have a good time.  This stuff is in my DNA. Weird, I know.

With this in mind, I like to call myself a Curator of Good Times. So, what does that mean? It means I love to work with individuals and businesses to create fabulous and unique experiences. Anything from celebrating significant life events – whether that be a birthday, a summer party, a wedding – or product launches and client events for their bustling businesses.

I take the tasks associated with putting on a seamless event out of your hands so you can concentrate on turning up and having a great time. I look after all or any of the organisational side of things from RSVP co-ordination, menu selection, caterers, wait staff, bar staff, atmosphere of the event, entertainment, furniture hire, whatever you can think of (and so much more!).

It has been a huge learning journey so far, with many things to consider from sourcing the perfect event space, securing insurance, social media and what it takes to be your own employer. I guess the learning never stops.

I feel incredibly grateful to have tremendous support from friends and family as I focus on the new business, and feel even more grateful at the certainty that this will be the success I want it to be.

I’m really looking forward to expanding my business and growing with it. It’s an exciting prospect.

It’s early days yet, but I am happy with my path for now, and for me that is a wonderful feeling.
