Hi, I’m Dayna, the newest team member here at Hostess with the Mostess, where, as the Editorial & Design Assistant, I have been introduced to this amazing world of events for the first time. I’ve absolutely loved meeting and getting to know all of you and seeing the amazing work you guys do! Here are a few fun facts to get to know me a bit better…

– I love to cook and bake, the more chocolate the better!

– I’m a certified animal lover and can’t wait to get my own pup soon

– I am a huge typography geek

– I’m one of those lucky people that gets to celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah :)

I’m so thrilled to continue to learn more about this industry and meet more of you! Check out my Party of 5 post every Friday for a fun mix of my favorite creative party albums from our social site!

Growing up, I loved all things Lisa Frank, so this Rainbow Unicorn Painting Birthday Party is right up six year-old-me’s alley (and present day me too if I’m being honest) ;). Helena Paschal of Helena’s Planners combined her daughter’s first request (painting) with her second request months later (unicorns) seamlessly — I know you can all relate […]



After adopting a dog, I became the most popular person at the park with every kid. Tiny squeals & requests of “Can we pet your puppy?” are everywhere (not that I or my dog mind).

I am loving the natural wooden elements and adorable felt […]

This Andy Warhol Pop Art First Birthday Party is proof that sophisticated themes can work amazingly well for kids’ parties too! Nick Gentile Events styled this party with some help from Rachelle Guerin, who came up with the pop art theme for her daughter, who’s favorite book is Andy Warhol’s Colors. I love how unique this theme is, especially since the bright […]



I am seriously swooning over this Gorgeous Little Deer Garden Birthday Party!! Natali Alexander of Serendipity Do styled this amazing party, as well as did some serious crafting (like the 600 feet of bunting — yep, all her!) I would say it definitely all paid off because this backyard is truly transformed. From the strings of bunting and hanging honeycomb balls, to […]
