About

The Party Teacher helps busy moms create inspired children's parties in their homes.

Planning your child’s birthday party is a way of saying, “I love you. I’m so glad you were born!”

But party planning also can be overwhelming. So many choices, so little time. How can you make it special?
- Let me help.
- The Party Teacher makes birthdays easy.

You CAN create a party without …

- Breaking the bank.
- Going to the same old bouncy-gym-game-pizza place.
- Buying every licensed character item in the party store.
- Turning yourself inside out trying to do it all.

Make your party something your child will always remember because YOU made the party. If you’re a busy mom who knows WHAT you want but not HOW to get there, I can give you a road map. A guide. A party plan. And if you need even more hand-holding, I can create something custom.

Let’s lessen your workload and double your fun. Because a birthday party should be more than just amazing decorations and dessert tables. They should be, you know, about your child. They should be fun.

WHY ME?

My parties have been featured in magazines and leading party sites, including Scholastic Parent & Child, Bird’s Party Magazine, Hostess With The Mostess, Kara’s Party Ideas and more! I’m a member of Martha Stewart’s Dreamers Into Doers and the Children’s Party Network. In 2012 and 2013, I was named to the Circle of Moms Top 25 Party Planning Moms.

But here’s what’s more important than those qualifications. Here’s what moms are saying.

"What I still owe you is a big thank you. Andrea was so happy with her party. She wanted a slumber party for her birthday and I fought it because I just didn’t have any idea of how to make it special but still keep to a budget. Then, Jennifer to the rescue. You listened to me and, even more importantly, listened to Andrea. She loved it and knew she had you to thank. I would never have done a party in my home without you. I hope we are able to work on something together for Andrea in the future. It will be difficult to top it but I know you can do it."
—Elizabeth, emailing about a custom party plan

"The plan is more than helpful … I don’t feel alone with you. Thank you a million times over for your help! I have enjoyed working with you and I will definitely use you again."
—Gwennetta, emailing about a custom party plan

"Thoroughly impressed with the thoughtfulness and organization that was put into this party plan! Every detail was thought of and a complete plan of action was put forth. I truly appreciate the budget friendly ideas you offered as alternatives. Thank you!"
—Jamie, emailing about one of our party plans

ABOUT JENNIFER

Between my twin girls, and a full-time job, I am wack-a-doodle busy most of the time. When I’m sitting still, I’m pretty sure I’m forgetting to do something. Sound familiar? But party planning is one thing I always seem to be able to find time for. (Yes, I’ve been known to stir spaghetti sauce, add a coat of paint to some party favors, stir the sauce again …)

With this kind of schedule, you’d think that a commercial party store would be just my speed. Run down the aisle, pop it in the cart. But they turn me off. Like Snoopy’s Christmas tree in A Charlie Brown Christmas, it’s just too commercial for me.

So I started creating my own birthday parties — joint birthday celebrations designed to make two very different girls happy. After a few years of my friends saying, “You should be a party planner,” I decided they might be onto something! I have been planning and hosting events since 2006. Inspired by my own twins, I founded The Party Teacher in 2011. Give me a shout. I would love to help make your child’s party dreams a reality!

    I am a mom of twins and party planner. It brings me such joy to see children adore a party created just for them. I believe any parent can host a party in their own home, and I'm here to help with ideas, inspiration, party plans and party buntings!

After years of our friends telling us “you should be a party planner,” I decided they might be onto something! I have been planning and hosting events since 2006. Inspired by my own twins, The Party Teacher was born.

My mission is to help you become the hostess you dream of being. Too busy to plan, shop, decorate, bake, and run a party yourself? Or maybe you love the legwork but you have “party planning block”? I can help.

Thank you for shopping at The Party Teacher!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q - Do your party plans include printables?

A - Most of the party plans do not include printables. That’s because I’ve partnered with talented graphic designers who have created custom printables just for my parties. I’m not a designer, so those ladies do a much better job for you. All the party plans include links to the designers’ shops.

Q - What age child are your party plans for?

A - Generally, the parties will work for ages 4 and up. I have crafts and up-and-at-’em activities for each party, so the children need to be old enough to manage loosely supervised time. However, I’ve seen moms use my party plans for 1-year-old parties. They use the menu and decorations, and have the games for older children in attendance. The only exception to my 4-and-up guideline is the Mystery Party Plan. I think you need to be 8 or older to be a fan of mysteries and understand the concept of solving a case.

Q - I’m having trouble downloading my party plan. Can you help?

A - After you complete your purchase, your file will be available on your Etsy downloads page. For more information: https://www.etsy.com/help/article/3949?ref=help_search_result

Q - I’m interested in one of your party plans, but want different activities. Do you have some ideas?

A - Sure. But it sounds like you’re really looking for a Custom Party Plan. With a Custom Party Plan, we start with a fresh slate and design something just for you and your child.

Q - I contacted one of the vendors listed in your party plan but she’s not responding or her shop is on vacation. Can you help?

A - That’s one reason I advise customers to begin planning their parties at least four weeks in advance, but earlier if at all possible. If someone is not responding to an Etsy convo, my best advice is to try contacting them via a direct message on their social media sites, like Facebook or Twitter.

Q - Yikes! My party is soon; can you mail my purchase faster?

A - I can, but there will be a rush fee of $20. In addition, I’ll need to send your purchase Priority Express Mail (1-2 business day delivery), and so your shipping cost will be higher. Please be aware that certain items may not be available on such short notice. In that case, I’ll offer you a substitute item.
