When is the last time you have invited someone into your home to sit down and dive into the parts of life that go deeper than everyday conversation?If this isn't something that you do, or have done recently, what's holding you back? Is it space? Is it clutter? Is it fear of what people might see when you let your walls down?For me, at one point or another it's been all of those things, and I know I'm not alone in that. That's why I'm so excited to share today's conversation with Victoria Duerstock.Victoria Duerstock is a creative, an author of multiple books, and has over 20 years of experience in interior design. Today we are talking about the richness that letting our walls down and literally opening up our doors has on our lives---despite what they look like, how big they are, how much laundry we have piled up, or how our kids behave.This conversation has come at such a perfect time because over the last year or so, Corey and I have chosen to finally get rooted in a town and intentionally dive deep into the relationships around us. We desired to find a community that we could do life with, and go beyond simple conversation and small talk. God has been so good in blessing us with that in His timing, and honestly none of these deep relationships would exist if our friends had not let their walls down, and invited us into their worlds and their homes.The richer our relationships get, the more I see this lacking in our generation as a whole and it's something I truly believe we desperately need. I can only say this because I went years believing that growing roots in a community and connecting deeper with other people outside of my immediate family had no value. How wrong I was!Victoria is so full of wisdom even in this short conversation. Not only does she share truths about the importance of getting past trying to “appear” a certain way, but she gives tactical tips on how to style our homes and make them more inviting.I hope you leave this conversation today feeling inspired to invite others into your world, and make your home a mission field.Episode Highlights: Victoria's journey to where she is now.The heart behind her new bookMaking your Home a Place of Mission with Victoria Duerstock.How to be more mission-minded when it comes to our homes.Things we can do to become more connected in this crazy world.Simple ways to re-decorate with what you already have!More on Guest:Victoria's WebsiteGet Guard Your Heart and Home HEREConnect with Victoria on InstagramMore on The Millennial Mission/Links Mentioned in Episode:Follow us on IG: @bethanyandcoreySign Up for exclusive discounts, benefits, and top secret info only our podcast listeners get!www.millennialmission.coPress Inquiries/Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

We at Made with HAPPY are all about celebrating the HAPPY everyday! And while you are doing all your planning and prepping, check out Alli's amazing crafts to keep the kids busy! Planning a Party When it comes to entertaining, there are so many aspects. But if you break them down and tackle one thing at a time, it's much easier. Here are some questions to ask yourself when you plan your next party: Who is coming? Is it kids or adults?How many people will you have? How big is your space?Is there a theme? Is it the holidays, a birthday or just any day kind of party?What is the flow? Is it an open house or a scheduled activity party? Will you be sitting or standing?What are you going to serve?Are you going to decorate? Do you need to tidy up? Tips for Parties If you get overwhelmed easily, here are some tips to get you started. Throwing a party can be easy and fun if you go into it with the right tools. Start small. Plan a small dinner party, invite a few close friends or even one other family. A small kids only party is a good start point too.If you know what guests are coming, you can have an idea of where to go from there with the rest of the party planning.Get everyone's dietary needs. This makes it easier to make sure you are serving something for everyone.Decide on drinks. If you're serving alcohol, make sure you have an option for those that don't drink.If you decorate, keeping it simple can go a long way.Having parties is about getting together and relationships, it's not about keeping busy because people just want to spend time with you. So keep it simple. Kids Parties Throwing a party for kids can be a good way to get your feet wet with entertaining. Kids are easy to please and keep happy! You need to decide if you are just having kids or if you will have the adults as well. This will drive the rest of the decisions. Also, decide how long the party will be and at what time. If it's in between mealtimes then you do not need many snacks. If the party is only a few hours, you won't need to worry about people being fed too much. If you have the adults, you'll want a few snacks for them too. But if it's only kids, you can keep it very simple with a few snacks your kids love. You can even buy individual snack bags and put them in a basket for easy grab and go. Keep the decor simple, kids truly don't care. Heading to your local dollar store is a great way to keep it very inexpensive. If you have a theme, focus on getting one thing from that theme to save money. Then buy things within that themes color. For example, streamers are lower in cost and can be used in many ways! Have one section that is theme focused, it can be the food table or even just an entrance decor, and then use pops of color to bring the theme other places. You can keep it simple with one or two banners or get fancier with themed food. A photo wall can be fun and cheap. Use those streamers by taping them down a wall as the background, add a ballon or two and grab dress up stuff from your kids toys to use. Prepping Ahead Making sure you have planned ahead will keep the party much less stressful. Here are things you need to plan: Food- what to serve and how muchDrinks- alcohol or notSeating- have seats for half the people if it is a flow type of party and not a sit down.Decor- keep it simple and inexpensiveDecide what you can do ahead and what has to be done day of Drinks First and foremost,

Did you know that you should think about #décor when it comes to your #catering? That's right! Food and beverage is a visual element that should be incorporated into the overall vision for the #reception. We chat with Constellation Culinary Group about ways that catering can compliment reception décor. For example, printed menus serve as a design element for the tablescape. Choosing a buffet-style dinner compliments a casual wedding, while a 5-course plated dinner enhances an elegant theme. We also chat about some of the most unique ways to use food and/or beverage as décor, as well as the types of décor that will enhance catering. Hint: it's all about #pinspotting, #uplighting, and #draping! We hope you enjoy this episode all about coordinating your catering with your wedding decor.

On the last Wednesday of every month, Christy & Michelle answer listener questions live on the show - YAWA! This month we're answering questions about: How to include special people into the wedding / How to have a rehearsal at an alternate location / Family-style dinner / Not hiring a DJ and using playlists instead / Alternative ways of honoring in-laws, and more! Email Question #1 My fiancé and I have a large wedding party (9 each). Most of them are dating each other and friends we've had for a long time. We have one more couple that we are close to, but we don't see as often that we want to include in our wedding day. They are already invited to all of the pre wedding events. We are in their wedding (smaller party and less friends of theirs from before they were dating) the weekend after ours. We've been racking our brains for ways to include them in the day that doesn't require giving them a job because they feel too special to give a job to. We were considering a reading or something like that during the ceremony since they are both Catholic like my fiancé and we are trying to include that in our day without it being a full Catholic wedding. I wanted to see if you had any suggestions of ways to include them in a way that honors our friendship without them feeling super left out or like we are just assigning them a job? Answer to #1: You answered your own question a little bit here! The best options feels like readings. The readings don't have to be religious, unless you want them to be. Another fun idea that has grown in popularity recently is Flower Adults (like as opposed to flower girls). They could hold the rings, deliver a poem, sing a song. There are also other elements of Catholicism you could tie in. Are there any parts of a Catholic wedding your fiancé wants to include that they could participate in? Email Question #2: I am in 3 weddings this years, so I've been trying to be the most knowledgeable I can be to help out my friends. One of the brides has a venue that does not allow a rehearsal at the venue, and I know how important rehearsals are. Do you have any ideas on how we can have a rehearsal not at the venue? And how I can convince the bride she does in fact need a rehearsal since the Officiant is an "Unofficial Officiant"? Thanks and keep up the great work! Answer to #2: Check out our Episode #37 (https://www.thebigweddingplanningpodcast.com/episodes/sq1hgq4uadk2ovpuq3ams76fvzqxiu?rq=37), the show notes alone are very informative! Rehearsals are so important! In fact, we dedicated an entire lesson in our Master Class (https://www.thebigweddingplanningmasterclass.com/) to them. It is absolutely possible to do it outside of the venue. The idea is to walk through the main points of the ceremony. Ultimately it's more about timing than the exact space itself. This helps the big day go so much smoother. Any rehearsal is better than no rehearsal. The location doesn't matter as much as the actual run through. Lobby of the hotel, backyard, etc. all of those places are totally acceptable and doable. Voicemail Question #3: I am getting married in September of 2022 my fiancé and I are super excited. We're getting married at this really cool Blank Slate industrial venue in Cleveland, Ohio. We really wanted to tie in some of our cultural backgrounds, because that's really important to us at this venue. My family is super Polish and we're going to have a Polka Band coming cuz that's something that we do at all of my family parties. And for Sam's side, he's super Italian. So one of the things we wanted to do is different family-style Gnocchi, passed around the table for dinner. And that's kind of where my question comes in. I was curious if you guys have seen family-style work well and how they really designed the table for that. We don't want to light a bunch of candles or have decor that could get knocked over or crushed if we had all of these bowls on top of it and whatnot. Answer to #3: We love family style! Here are some elements to consider: - The size of the table (the bigger the better) - The way the guests are sitting (they need some space) - How many guests are at each table (you probably want 2 platters of each food type) - Decor (a centerpeice on a large round table is still doable) - The food itself (you want things that are easy to share) - Service (you still need wait staff and in some instances, it's best for the wait staff to help serve at each table) - Shape of the table (ideal would be a 72" round or an extra wide banquet table) - Price (Family-style can be more expensive because the caterer needs to order extra food) - Timeline (Considering toasts and that this food service type is typically a little faster than a buffet or sit - down meal) Remember, guests are typically passing the food around the table. When you are passing around the trays, think about the dishes that are being used. Shallow dishes are the standard for something like gnocchi - so it is important to talk to the caterer about logistics. The last thing you want is for the food to spill on a guest as it gets passed around. You don't have to do the whole dinner service family style, but keep it in mind that it does require extra consciousness about each element of the table. It can be more expensive, because you need more of each option on the tray to make sure that everyone gets what they want. The portions can be smaller, but you have to assume that each guest will take one of each option. Centerpieces are not impossible, just keep them low. Voicemail Question #4: I am a Music lover. I'm a musician. I feel like I'm really good at making playlists and creating an Ambience with music. But of course, I can't be my own DJ, right? So my work around is that I am making a playlist I've been working on it, far before I even got engaged and I'm going to have a friend who works in radio emcee the night and play my playlist so I still have the emcee but you know, I get to play all the songs that I've curated. I'm already getting guests talking to me about wanting certain songs played and I know this is a cool thing that some people do if they are doing a playlist. They might ask their guests. Did you want to include a song request, you know on your RSVP, but I personally don't want any of that. I don't want anyone having any say in it. I have thought about my guests and the songs they will like. My partner is from Ecuador, so we have a lot of Latin music included but a lot of old favorites that my family will enjoy as well and I just don't want take requests on the night-of either. I am telling my Emcee to be firm in this but is there anything else I can do? Can there be a nice way of saying this before the music even starts? I think people will really enjoy the playlist if they just let themselves, but you know how drunk people can be so this is just a big concern of mine and I know it might sound a little crazy, but I just really don't want anyone requesting anything. I want my playlist to play because I worked so hard on the order of it! I've just put a lot of time into this. So, I was just wondering if there was a nice way to say this without sounding like the biggest party pooper of all time. Answer to #4: Check out our Episode #46 (https://www.thebigweddingplanningpodcast.com/episodes/wv6lajmysmvlkgatxglvfz71ipslc7?rq=46)! It's all about DJ'ing your own wedding and In it, our guest talks all about the things you need outside of the actual playlist itself. He also suggests having more than one playlist available just in case. We see you have an emcee, so make sure they are completely control of the playlist so you do not have to have any part in that. It's too much stress to add into your day when you should just be able to dance and enjoy. As wedding planners, we always suggest a professional wedding DJ if the budget allows. It is also okay not to have one. You are also not required to take requests, at all. You can even add it to the wedding website so people are not inclined to keep asking. Email Question #5: My fiancé and I got engaged on July 4th, 2020, and have the bulk of the planning for our March 26, 2022 wedding complete (yay!). We're really starting to focus on guest and family experiences, which are some of the things we care the most about with our wedding. Our wedding mission statement is "host a fun, logistically convenient party for all of our family and friends". That said, we come from very different kinds of families. I'm from a big, warm, loud, mushy, huggy, Italian family, and he's from a more reserved, intellectual, independent German and Pennsylvania Dutch family. Our families get along really well, and we both love, appreciate, and enjoy spending time with each other's families. I'm super close with both of my parents (and quite close with my fiancé's parents as well...what can I say, I'm a people person), but while he loves his parents, he's still working on building the kind of warm and fuzzy relationship I have with mine. We recognize that our families and upbringings are different, but there are values from each family that we want to share and build on. All that said, my question centers around how to include my future mother-in-law in our wedding in a way that makes her feel comfortable and feels authentic to the relationship she has with us as a couple and with her son. My father-in-law is a friendly Midwesterner and is excited to be part of as many parts of the wedding as possible (rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, the whole thing). My future MIL is a brilliant, caring, introvert who I think has a bit of social anxiety. Do you have any ideas of how we can honor my mother-in-law and/or father-in-law in a more subtle way that will still show them and our guests how much we love and appreciate them just the way they are? We did ask my future MIL if we could hold our rings in a beautiful small wooden box that her father made, and she really liked that idea. We would love any suggestions or thoughts you may have! Answer to #5: The best piece of advice we can give to you is to take her cues. Remember that her social anxiety has nothing to do with you or your wedding, or how she feels about your marrying her son. It can be easy to take it personally, but know that it has nothing to do with you. She is advocating for herself about wanting to leave early. She may surprise you and stay longer, but just let that be unexpected and a nice bonus if it happens. It will only happen if she feels heard and comfortable. If they don't feel comfortable doing the mother/son dance (ask mom/ask fiancé), then skip it. You can have a group parent dance if she wants to do it but without being the center of attention. Maybe you can include your siblings, or all the parents/grandparents. Ultimately, just communicate beforehand. She may be more willing than you expected, but regardless she will feel loved for that effort.
