Nifty Fifty, A Thank You

What does a publisher do when she’s turning the big 5-0 and wants an over-the-top, Nifty-Fifty, Lawrence Welk-inspired birthday extravaganza?


I’ll let you in on a secret: the successful party’s amazing details — from Cheez Whiz to vintage records spinning on an old turntable — were handled by many of the amazing wedding industry professionals featured in Seacoast Weddings  magazine. A very special thanks to Kate Martin. No matter what crazy idea I had, including multiple vintage costume changes, surprise entertainment and a photo booth, Kate was ahead of me every step of the way. All of my wonderful party partners pulled it together for a seamlessly executed party that was unforgettable.


Thanks to Kate Martin of Beautiful Days Events, Jennifer Williamson of Jenny’s Wedding Cakes, Michael Prete of Portsmouth Catering, Lumina by Marina Photography, Leah Richardson of SelahFilms, DJ Ryan Parker, TapSnap Photobooth, Deena Berry of DuDa Spa & The Dance Hall.


What a gift for me to experience what these folks can do for you! You are in good hands!
