How to Plan a Party by Micah Temple



How To Plan a Party

If you are going to plan a party you should know these things. First, you need a good location. One idea is that it should be where your theme would fit. If you are having a sports party, you should have it in a place where there is a enough room to play. A huge room would be perfect for a dance party. You should have a water party if it’s going to be hot outside.

You should have fun activities, so your guests don’t get bored. Fun games, music, and prizes, would be great. You should have a schedule so know what to do first, second, and last. This is important, so you don’t do the same thing the whole time, and you party does not go on forever.

Snacks are important, so have tasty food and drinks. Soda, sparkling lemonade, and root beer are all yummy drinks.  Some good snacks are chips, crackers, and popcorn.  If you are planning a meal pizza, nachos, or hot dogs are great for parties. These are just some ideas you can use at your next party.

Mark’s Family

I have gotten to know the Marks family over the last couple of years and I love that I get to be apart of all their special memories.  Baby number two was on the way so I had the privilege of getting some sweet family shots of everyone as they look forward to baby Boston coming.

On the menu that night was soup, grilled cheese, and yummy toppings.  Sorry there is no picture of the soup….probably because I was stuffing my face with this delicious food!

Going Away Navy Style

Michael is a dear friend of our family, as well as brother-in-law to my brother.   His life is taking an exciting turn as he gets ready to leave for the Navy this next week.  His family threw a great going away party for him.  You all did a great job it looked awesome!!

Michael we are so excited for you as you start this new journey. Words can not express how grateful we are , that you are taking  up the call to defend this country.  It is bitter sweet to see you go.  We are proud and excited, and yet sad that it is now one of our own that is out there risking his life  for us.  I pray for God’s strength and protection on you.  My God Bless you on this new journey!

Old McDonald Had A Farm


I had the privilege of  taking some pictures for a Farm Themed birthday party.  Their little boy was having his big 1st birthday.   This event was the real deal, outfitted with real tractors and everything!  There was so much cute detail throughout this party, it was a lot of fun to shoot.  Happy Birthday Mason!

Iris Turns Two

We were invited to an adorable vintage inspired birthday party this weekend.  Ashley did such a great job, and everything looked so sweet and lovely. Not only can Ashley throw a great party, but she is very crafty as well.  I going to plug Ashley for a minute because she has an Etsy store with awesome stuff for your home, so if you have not checked it out make sure you do at Ash At Home.   Iris you are darling and I hope you had a wonderful day.  Happy Birthday Iris.
