  The Boastful Host offers personalized party planning, design services, and handcrafted party decor including custom party favors. Every party that we plan is unique and personalized to meet our client’s individual party needs. Because each party is one-of-a-kind, we recommend reaching out to us so we can discuss how we can help you create a memorable party that will earn you some serious bragging rights!
  The Boastful Host was started by two Monmouth County moms, Adrienne and Amy, who were looking to use their talent in a way to help other busy moms by making their lives a little less stressful. Starting with a conversation about what your little one’s favorite things are, they can spin it into a one-of-a-kind  birthday party that will be sure to please both kids and adults alike. They understand though, that all needs and budgets are different, and therefore will always want to start off any initial inquiry with a consultation to see which of their services best fits your situation. 
  In addition to children’s (and adult) birthday parties, they also plan Baby Showers and Sprinkles, Bridal Showers, Holiday Tables and Design for at home entertaining, Baptisms, Communions, and just about any other celebration you can think of! And some of the services they offer (but not limited to), include dessert table styling, photo backdrops and frames, kids activities, vendor selection and management, floral arrangements and tablescapes, goodie bags, and the list goes on and on!
  They truly enjoy getting to know their clients and families, and often find themselves doing all of the siblings parties and future birthdays and celebrations as well.
