National Ditch Your Resolution Day

Torn image edge

How’s your resolution going so far?

(We get it)

It’s the start of the New Year, and we’ve all heard plenty about the New Year’s Resolutions and ways to better yourselves this year. Shoot, we hope you even threw a Vision Boarding Party with our handy event planning template, because we really do care about personal growth and going after the dreams that ignite that fire inside of you.

On the contrary, it’s Dry January (or is it Damp January… we’ve heard murmurings) and you just may already be sick of the commitment your friend talked you into. Maybe the gym isn’t quite living up to the hype you thought it would. Wherever you land regarding your resolutions—let us be clear—we applaud goals, setting habits, and growing into the you that you love most… sometimes the resolutions need to be ditched and you just need to get your party on.

Happy National Ditch Your Resolution Day. Here’s how to plan a party.

The Sweets

While you’re at it, ditch the meal prep recipes and healthy cookbooks, and get back to baking. No baking soda? No problem. Here are the top alternative ingredients to find in your pantry when you’re not fully stocked to bake. Voila, now you are.

Staying on the tasty track, and still in search of that little something extra to make your party pop, set up a popcorn bar. Or a hot cocoa bar. Whichever type of bar is your vibe, style it with confidence and it's bound to be a hit.

Oh, plus a bonus for you, because don’t we all wish we had an official party planning checklist?

We can’t coin that phrase, but hey, we still believe it. So make the most of our party planning tips. Make the most of your year. It’s the only 2023 you’ll get.
