The Queen of Theme

I am the Theme Queen.
Self-appointed, perhaps, but it is a legacy I have earned and although not everyone gets it, no one would deny it.

Fun fairs, Galas, Birthday Parties, Bunco—to me, a gathering and a theme go hand in hand. Oh, you’re having a party? That’s so funny, I’m having a theme party!

A theme helps me prepare the menu, the decorations, invitations, games, prizes—everything! I think in thematic connections, I can’t help it.

I considered a theme for my theme blog, but decided that although a theme about themes might be awesome, it also might be more commitment than I’m willing to give this Monday morning.

Instead I’ll share some of the themes I’ve used for Bunco:

If I’m the Queen of Theme, I’m also the Princess of Promotion. I love to create thematically inspired bottles, matchbooks, tote bags, and t-shirts. If it has a surface, I can label it!

And yet, when my daughter mentioned she had a theme for her wedding, I was taken aback.

A theme. For a wedding. Isn’t LOOOOVE the theme? Eternal dedication, lifetime commitment, happily ever after…
Sure, you get to pick your colors, your date, your locale, but the rest is just bows and bouquets, dresses, hair and jewelry. And something blue.

Then I thought, I GET TO HELP THEME A WEDDING!
(yay!)

We’re still in the planning stages so I won’t go into detail on what her ideas are.
The wedding is in July of 2013, I imagine I’ll have plenty of time to share.
Suffice it to say, she’s on the right track.
This wedding theme thing is just my ticket, I am SO ON BOARD! Whoot! Whoot!

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
