Wait. At the risk of sounding like a Miss America emcee, I have to tell you that both Brittany and I were so blown away by the creativity, originality, attention to detail, and all around fun displayed in this all of this years’ parties. Fortunately, Brittany selected the finalists, or I probably would have chosen about 50 of them. Thank you to everyone who took the time to link-up to the Party Party for sharing your creativity with us. All parties were added to these Pinterest boards and will be a wealth of inspiration for all of us crazy party planning people for years to come.
