Party Planning

Ever since the New Years Eve party in 2016 I have had a deep passion for party planning!

Big event reviews!

Through my job I manage to get to some of the biggest events getting around. I love writing about my experiences at them.


Sometimes I'll just have a load of gorgeous photos that I want to show off!

WHo am i?

My name is Bessie Harvey and while I may have a pretty old fashioned name (thanks mum) my passion is party planning! I plan great parties and events and the inspiration started for it all a couple of years ago when I attended an amazing party in France on New Years Eve in 2016.

The purpose of this blog is for me to be able to share my experiences with party planning and just a place to share some stories about some of the amazing nights I have had throughout my life!

I love getting photos taken of the nights at my events, there will be plenty of photos throughout the website and on the blog!

The first party

I figured for my first proper blog maybe I should talk about the party that started it all, I realise I did not even properly introduce myself, I’m Bessie and I am an English girl who was living in France towards the end of 2016. I was in Marseille, which is a big city on the South coast of France. A girlfriend and I got invited to a party while having a few drinks at a bar. We didn’t have any concrete plans for the night so we decided to go. Turns out it was at an amazing mansion. We lucked into the most amazing night. 

The inspiration

The craziest night of my life, it also ended up being the inspiration for my future career, you see these days I am a party planner, party coordinator and it is amazing. People pay me to design and plan parties for them and it is great! It just so happens that the idea came to me that night. The location was amazing, it was just up from the beach had a brilliant view of the ocean. Honestly, I was in love instantly. It really was a magical evening.

Beautiful Fireworks

We were supplied with drinks all night, I may have had a few more than I should have. Lovely food, the fireworks, oh the fireworks. They were beautiful and we could see them perfectly from the balcony looking out over the beach. It was stunning. We met a bunch of really interesting people and they were all very lovely. For them to take us in for a night was great because we were sort of struggling for plans and we were worried that the night was going to be … uneventful. Turns out it was anything but, it was the best night of my life.

The night carried on and there was a band at the house, it was crazy how good they were. I had never been to something as extravagant as this event was, that’s what really lit the fuse for me. The difference between a good party and a GREAT party became painfully obvious. It made me pursue the party planning industry and it changed my life for the better. Now if I can throw a party that does that for someone, mission accomplished.

Bessie’s back

Originally back in 2016 I started this website as a place to post all my New Years Eve pictures from 2016 (shocking I know), but I also wrote a few blogs. I took a break from the website (and the domain expired) but here I am again. From now on I think I am mainly going to focus on blogging about things that interest me. I will be writing about parties, decorations and just general other things about my life.

I am very excited!

Let’s get started 🙂
