Thank you Jose Cuervo for sponsoring this post. Check out Jose Cuervo’s new Iced Teagarita, a perfect match made for the ultimate summer.

I think it is time to discuss the purple elephant standing in the corner of this room. He is standing at your six. You don’t believe me? No, I wasn’t drinking before noon! I’m a classy broad, you know this!

Well… maybe a little sip with my cake. I mean, it WAS right there. And it WAS my birthday. And it WAS delicious.

Whatever. It’s my party and I’ll drink if I want to, drink if I want to, drink if I want to.

<Puts fingers in ears> La, la, la. I’m not listening until you agree to talk about the purple elephant.


How to Throw a Party for a Party Planner's Birthday

Purple elephant. Yes, that.

Do you know how to throw a party, specifically a birthday party, for a party planner? I ask because my mom brought it up when I told her I won’t have a birthday party until I turn the big 3-0. You know, when I start looking old and wishing I was able to turn 30 over and over again. Wait? Isn’t that why Botox was invented?

Please, no birthday gifts unless they are gift certificates to Dr. Feel Good. Kthanks!

How to Throw a Party with simple decorations for a Party Planner's Birthday

It might blow your mind to hear this…

Are you sure you want to know how to throw a party for a person who is absolutely OCD over party details? Are you wo-man enough for this gig?

The odds of a party planner wanting a slammin’ shindig are pretty low. I’m talking low like hanging out with the trolls, low.

We (meaning some, not all) party planners throw parties for our loved ones because… well… we love them long time. That, and we are self-confessed introverts. Parties? Yes please! Talking to every single guest? Imma gonna take this here bottle and find me a cozy spot in the restroom. Let me know when it’s time for cake.

How to Throw a Party for a Party Planner's Birthday with easy cocktails.

My bottle happened to be Jose Cuervo Iced Teagarita this year. Umm… chyeah! Like, I did not expect it to be as tasty as it was. And no, my opinion wasn’t formed towards the end of the bottle because we all know what happens at the bottom of a bottle. I’m pretty sure there is a song about that… (Which is why you should drink responsibly. Do as I say,  not as I do.)

I cracked the bottle of a new twist on a classic and let it waft to my sniffer, over and over again. It was glorious. Iced tea and margarita babies are where it’s at, according to a recent family poll.

Did you know my name in French class was Marguerite? So, if my calculations are correct…

Jose Cuervo Iced Teagarita is quite possibly the love child of my French personality and a rapper from the 80’s.

Wait, what?

I’m sorry, I didn’t see the line in the sand. Let me take a step back and get back to the point of this post. Forgive me?

How to Throw a Party for a Party Planner's Birthday- Make sure you have their favorite cake.


  • Incorporate her favorite color.
  • Give her a nice cake, unless she prefers cookies or pie.
  • Make an effort to decorate. Don’t go overboard, but do grab a roll of cheap crepe paper and tassel it up. The effort you put into the minimal details will not go unnoticed.
  • Provide a delicious drink that she will slurp down no problem.
  • And always, always whip out her ‘pimp cup’.

What did I tell you? Any man can forget about a birthday and still throw together a special cake and drink. Oh, and my cake? Freaking fantastic! I don’t care who you are, coconut is amazing.

Be sure to keep your eyes wide for the rest of the summer because Teagarita launched in May and the new kid on the block is worth a quick scour of the booze department. You won’t regret it.

Cheers to party planners everywhere!
