{News} Welcome Jennifer Needham

April 2nd, 2012 in news

It’s NEWS Monday!  Today, I’d like to welcome our newest DAZZLING contributor to The Sparkle Spot.  I’m dedicated to bringing you all fresh and new celebration ideas and inspiration and have enlisted some fabulous contributors to help me do just that.  Please stay tuned because soon I’ll also be adding some wonderful wedding professionals that will share tips from their trade with you!

Please welcome Jennifer from Double the Fun Parties.  I’m so excited to add Jennifer to our list of dazzling contributors. I’m sure she is going to bring some absolutely fun and beautiful celebrations inspiration!  Read on for Jennifer’s full bio!



After 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 Double the Fun Parties in 2011.

I bring a 15-year background in project management and client service to all our engagements and am a member of Martha Stewart’s Dreamers Into Doers and the Children’s Party Network.

But perhaps more importantly, as a mom, I understand how to create a party kids love. We throw joint celebrations for our twins, and so our yearly challenge is to design one party that makes two very different girls equally happy.

We want to double the fun you have at your party by doing the work for you. Double the Fun Parties creates DIY Party Plans, Party Kits, and Custom Party Plans for busy moms. Our goal is to design a celebration that you and your child declare “the best party ever!”

Our parties have been featured on Paper & Pigtails, Catch My Party, Gig Masters, The Party Wagon, Mom & Wife, Nickelodeon Parents Connect, Bird’s Party, Celebrations at Home, Chickabug, and Kara’s Party Ideas. And now I’m thrilled to be here at The Sparkle Spot with Ebony and you!
