The Hood Magazine New Issue! September 2021

It’s Party Time! 

It is hard to believe another summer is almost over and fall is here! I love having my kids home with me during the summer months, but I am ready to get back to routines! And nothing helps me get back into a routine better than working on our 11th annual birthday and party issue!  

I know party planning, especially birthday parties, can be a lot of work as a parent! My kids both have summer birthdays, and we did two types of parties this year! Jaxson was all about heading over to Galaxy Gaming and having Pizza Ranch delivered while Khloe wanted a big backyard birthday bash with an inflatable from Bounce Around Inflatables and Snow Cone Machine from 

 ABC Rentals. In this issue, we created a list of the best party venues and party services that can make your event extra fun!  Whether you are planning something simple or going for an over-the-top party this year, we have the resources here to help! If you are looking for something fun to do for a party or a memory maker as a family, we stopped by SelfieWrld in the Empire Mall for our cover shoot! The girls (along with Miranda and I) had so much fun checking out all the backdrops! 

If you don’t have a party to plan in the next few months, don’t worry! The great thing is you can keep our September issue on hand or you can head over to to find the Party Planning Directory on our website all year long. No matter what month your birthday is in, we will have the ideas to make it a success waiting here.   

Last but certainly not least, it was so much fun seeing all the families on the Familyfest Fun Cruise! Fancy the Unicorn was busy this year traveling around to all our amazing stops. I hope you were able to stop by a few businesses to learn what they have to offer for families.  We couldn’t do the cruise without all our vendors and sponsors – thank you! The Familyfest team is working on some fun things for 2022!  Make sure to follow the Familyfest Facebook page for our announcement this fall.
