My name is Di Rankin and my party journey started in 2001 when I started Parties Kids Remember with my sister in law and later Pinkilicious Tea Parties. My background is in Banking and Finance, so as you can imagine, friends and colleagues were a little shocked to see me in a bright orange fairy dress dripping in glitter!  They thought I had gone mad....well the good news is....you need to be a little "mad" to design the best parties.

I moved to New York in 2004 and was inspired by America's great sense of occasion. The bigger the better - I love it! It was in New York that I decided it was my personal mission to create parties that all would remember for ever. I hope you enjoy my blog and would love to hear about your party triumphs.
