Carpool Patty: You missed a killer BYOB party last night.
Playground Pam: Bring Your Own Baby, eh? Sounds wild.
CP: It rocked. There were balloons and snacks, and everyone came with a doll and played mommy. It was thrown by Rock Star Kidz, the party-planning extension of stationery studio Sapphire Design Shoppe.
PP: They know how to pick a theme and run with it.
CP: I’ll say. The Enchanted Hollow fete is pure magic; the birthday girl puts on fake wings and can flit around a room decorated like a fairy’s garden. The pros handle everything, from custom invites to R.S.V.P. management to day-of coordination.
PP: So the host can just sit back.
CP: And let them bring it.
