My name is Alison, and I am the founder/party director of Toronto-based A Hot Pink Petticoat, the life of every party.

I'm thrilled to have you visit! This blog is everything party. I talk about local (Toronto) vendors, and how to incorporate eco-friendly ideas into your event. I have occasional guest bloggers stop in to share their love of parties while providing advice, tips and more. Such guests include real-brides, photographers and cake designers.

I touch on etiquette, how to save money and my newest feature, Song Book, where I share my favourite, non-traditional songs that would be a great touch to any wedding. I also provide links to those crafty individual's who have provided the internet world with free downloads, and fabulous DIY projects perfect for your event.

Get comfy and take a look around. I’d love to hear from you so please drop me a line at events@ahotpinkpetticoat.com.
