Hi, I’m Alyssa, the newest team member here at Hostess with the Mostess, where I get to stretch my creative muscles as an Editorial & Design Assistant. I’ve been having a blast exploring all the creativity and talent in the world of parties & events! Here are a few fun facts to get to know me…

– I judge menus by their font choice

– Scrabble is my game

– If my TV is on, I’m probably watching Iron Chef America

– I love to craft and do yoga, but not at the same time

I’m so thrilled to see all the amazing stuff that runs through HWTM. Check out my Party of 5 post every Friday for a fun mix of my creative party albums from our social site!
