Planning one amazing party is more complicated than it sounds.

Reece Ryan is known as the best wedding planner in town, but it’s time to take her company to the next level. Getting the contract from a prestigious law firm to plan their upcoming political related events is just the break she needs to prove that she can put together more than just the perfect nuptials. Sure, these events which will receive national coverage might be slightly out of her league, but it’s nothing she can’t handle. Managing the hotshot lawyer the firm has tasked as their liaison for the project is a whole other story.
Griffith Brighton always thought the start of his political career would come from hard work and his brilliant legal mind, not throwing some fancy party. But when the firm’s managing partner asks him to work with the event coordinator to organize a fundraiser dinner for the presidential candidate, he knows it’s the opportunity he’s been waiting for to get in front of some major political players. After years of goal setting and career planning, his future finally seems to be coming together …until two weeks of working with Reece make him reconsider everything he thought to be true about life and falling in love.

Party Planning 101:  Taking your Party to the Outdoor Festival

One of my favorite parts of my new book Political Parties is when Griffith and Reece head to the hot air balloon festival in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Surrounded by the vivid colors of the hot air balloons and the crisp fall air, things between them really start to heat up.

But you don’t have to hop a plane to Albuquerque to enjoy an outdoor festival this fall. With the cooler weather, this is the season when outdoor festivals start popping up everywhere, and it’s the perfect excuse to take your party on location. This is the ultimate easy entertaining solution to gathering all your friends together.

I love outdoor festivals because many times they offer free or relatively cheap entertainment. The hardest part sometimes can be finding out about it. Local newspapers, neighborhood websites or social media are great ways to find out about upcoming events in your area.

Once you know about it, invite your friends! This is a great way to entertain without having to do a lot of work. Invite several friends to go with you and set up a designated time and meeting spot. Poof. Instant party. And you don’t even have to clean your house.

Keep the cost down by bringing your own picnic. Some festivals don’t allow you to bring in your own food, so check this out beforehand. But if outside food and drinks are allowed, pack a small cooler full of things you can share and are picnic friendly. Some of my favorites are chips and dips, a charcuterie tray or easy fruits and veggies such as carrot sticks and grapes. And, in my experience, most people won’t say no to a brownie. But many parks have a no glass policy, so make sure to pack your treats in shatter proof containers.

And don’t forget the chairs! Setting up a sort of home base allows your friends to have a place to gather together while also having the freedom to explore and come back. Bring along a blanket. It will provide plenty of places for people to sit and doesn’t require a lot of effort to get it there.

And lastly, enjoy! Gathering your friends and family at an outdoor festival is a great way to make lasting memories.

About the Author

Rachel wrote her first novel when she was twelve and entered it into a contest for young author/illustrators. Unfortunately, the judges weren’t impressed with her stick figures. So she dropped the dream of becoming a world famous illustrator and stuck to spinning stories. When she’s not busy working on her latest book, she loves to travel with her family and friends. By far, her favorite destination is the beach, which tends to work its way into most of her stories. Between vacations, you can find her at home in The Woodlands, TX with her wonderful husband, their two adventurous kids and a couple of spirited pets, all of whom share Rachel’s love of the ocean. Well, except the cat and dog. They’re both afraid of water. Find out more about what Rachel has been up to at rachelmageebooks.com.
