LYFETYMES: The New Way to Plan a Party
Here’s a little backstory of why LYFTYMES was created.
I volunteered to plan my close friend’s baby shower; I figured I'd crush it. I’ve been the right-hand gal supporting huge corporate organizations in many roles for years. If I could do that, how hard could it be?
So when it came time to start planning, I started with what everyone does. I pulled out my laptop and entered:
"How to plan a baby shower."
"Tools to plan a baby shower."
"I need help planning a baby shower."
I kept getting printable checklists, helpful blogs, and great articles.. There were plenty of pictures and inspiration, but I could not find an end-to-end website for all things party outside of weddings.
I went through the same thing planning my niece's graduation party (and let me promise you one thing, you do not want to screw up a teenage girl’s party). I was running around like a crazy person, trying to divide and conquer with co-hosts, worried sick it wouldn’t be the guest of honor’s vision, or I would forget something important.
I was so stressed over it and a full-time job working mom with little time.
I love to celebrate life’s milestones or just throw a party on the weekend, just because. My fondest memories are from these moments, and I hope there are many more.
But as I sat at my computer and thought of everything that needed to be done for my friend’s baby shower, I knew it should not be full of pain points—a baby shower should be full of joy and most of all, fun!
That's why I decided enough was enough, and LYFETYMES was created.

Include the Guest of Honor
Are you hosting for someone? Maybe graduation or baby or bridal shower? No problem, with LYFETYMES you can send your guest of honor a link to help personalize the celebration with limited view (so you don’t give all the details away!) to help with invites or provide registry information or theme favorites.
Guest will be able to view invitation details, mapping directions, gift, and registry information and send the host or co-host questions.
We know that not every day is a party, but it’s still important to remember someone's birthday, anniversary, or any special day. To keep you organized so that you never forget one of these special days, we created LYFEMINDERS: Lyfe’s little reminders - you pick the day, and we will send you a reminder so you can send your love.
You can even plan multiple celebrations at the same time and access past celebrations to reuse tools and information like past invite lists to make LYFE easier!
LYFETYMES has also personalized the experience for all party goers including:
Star of the Show (Guest of Honor)
Hostess with the Mostess (Host & Co-Hosts)
LYFE of the Party (Guests)
We can't wait to start celebrating with you. Come for the party, and stay for a LYFETYME!
