5 Years of Blogging? Oh the Things I Have Done!

Today is the day. The day I am going to do it. Today, I am going to try my hardest not to feel guilty, not to feel bad, not to feel stressed.

Today, I am announcing the first break I’ve officially taken in over 5 years of blogging my ideas and inspiration boards for weddings, parties, celebrations, soirees, and holidays.

Did you know that before I started Unique Pastiche Events, I was blogging on my other blog, A Sparkly Life for Me (formerly The Sparkle Queen)? I was! That’s where all of this all began, with The Sparkle Queen: Events. After creating a number of themed event decor boards, I knew I wanted to be blogging my ideas weekly, and thus the beginning of Unique Pastiche Events.

Since starting this site back in 2013, I have been posting themed party ideas every week. EVERY WEEK. That’s a lot of ideas! And as much as I love doing it, sharing all the ideas, posting links to talented designers and creatives from around the globe, I need a break. I am fortunate to have a job in the events industry where I can design creative and unique events for my clients. I am also lucky to have found a new spark of passion and inspiration in my DIY blogging during my 2017 tablescaping challenge. At least twice a month I’ve been sharing tablescapes and table decor for your home, based largely on DIY elements (which I share video tutorials for), as well as items I find at the thrift stores, clearance sections, tag sales – you name it! My goal is to help generate some amazing tablescapes that are Pinterest worthy, in the comfort of my own home, without breaking the bank!

This new chapter in my blogging timeline has really captivated my attention, and I see myself diving into more in the future as time allows. I know I can create some wonderful designs with a bit more time and energy able to be devoted to these creations.

So with that being said, I hope you check out my site and see what I’m creating this month for my tablescaping challenge. In the meantime, I’m going to be taking a break from my weekly posts here at Unique Pastiche Events. When I’m ready to come back and dive into sharing ideas and concept boards, I will. Who knows, maybe I’ll post now and again as inspiration comes to me. But for now, I want to divert all my extra time outside of work and life, to developing more video DIY tutorials and tablescapes to help bring a little sparkle and joy into our homes and lives.

I hope you join me on my next adventure!
