Pink's Party Planning!

Last week, my best friend had her birthday party run by Pink's Party Planning at the Pink Comb Salon in Nutley NJ. It was an AMAZING night and I have to pass on the concept because it's a great idea not only for birthdays, but also for bachelorette parties, bridal showers, or a "thank you" for your bridal party! We went to the salon on a Saturday night and had our choice of getting our hair done, makeup done, a manicure or a pedicure. They had food, drinks, and best of all: PINK CHAMPAGNE! Which I can assure you was the first thing to go!

The GORGEOUS Pink Comb Salon, location of Pink's Party Planning Events!
Pink's Party Planning is owned and run by Alana Michaels. She's really the shining star of the parties. Her bubbly personality makes the parties SO much fun. Get to know her a little bit better:

Name: Alana C. Michaels

Business: Pink’s Party Planning

Location: Pink Comb Salon- 89 Franklin Ave, Nutley, NJ 07110

Type of Vendor: Pink's Party Planning is a one-of-a-kind, full-service planning company that works closely with clients to plan every aspect of your Pink Party to reflect your personality. These beauty parties are exclusive to Pink Comb beauty salon, allowing you and all of your guests’ full access to our salon from start to finish of your Pink Party! We specialize in birthday parties, bridal beauty, and bachelorette parties, our salon is the perfect environment for an unforgettable GIRLS NIGHT OUT-for ALL Ages!!!

How Long In Business: Pink’s Party Planning is a baby! It was born when Pink Comb Salon opened it’s doors, this past August 2008!!

Work Style: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! Energy and Enthusiasm (Double E’s)…is my key to success! I love to create a party atmosphere making my client and her guests feel like royalty the minute they walk through the doors of Pink Comb Salon. I base my parties around my client’s personality, if they are very laid-back and low-maintenance, that is how I run the party; a calm and relaxing mani/pedi package perhaps? If I know I have a bunch of wild girls about to head out on the town…I know to have the extra bottles of bubbly ready and waiting! No matter what the occasion, these are beauty parties made to make every person who attends, feel like the most beautiful and pampered girl in the world!!

Training: Guess you can say I am a natural-born party-planner. Whether it was planning my own Sweet 16, my sister’s bridal shower, my mother’s 50th birthday party, or my baby cousin’s baptism. Not only did I have a blast creating the invitations, coming up with a theme, organizing the menu, or making the party favors, but the party itself was always the best pay-off of all! My educational background is in Communications/Theater, and I also work as an Assistant Theater Director, so I treat every party like a theater production, I want to “WOW” my audience as soon as the curtain goes up!

Favorite Color: PINK…haha, but I guess that’s the obvious one! I also REALLY love teal and brown...

Sports Team: Well my fiancĂ© is a huge Giants fan…so …"Yeah G-Men”…but honestly, I would much rather watch any reality show or a marathon of Law & Order SVU before I sit through an entire sporting game!!

Languages: I am actually proficient in Sign Language, I took some classes in it in college and I have two family friends who are deaf, and I couldn’t stand not being able to communicate with them!! Sign language is an amazing thing and I encourage everyone to try their hand in it at some point in their life.

Favorite Food: OMG…this list could go on FOR….EV…ER!!!...I Love Italian and Mexican…those are my two FAVES…however, I truly love any and all kinds of food, just eating in general makes me SO HAPPY Hidden Talents or Favorite Hobbies: Hmmm….I can dance like Britney Spears, I love to crochet, practice yoga, and study Astrology…these are not in any certain order!
Home Town: Jefferson Township, NJ

Favorite Place: …I’m hoping I will one day be able to say Italy or Greece (we will be cruising here for our June 2009 Honeymoon so maybe one day soon)…as of now though I have to say I love Southern California. –If only my family could have all moved out there. I would probably still be living in the Golden state!

Pets: TWO KITTIES!! They are my precious babies…Oliver & Elphie (Elphie is named after one of our favorite Broadway show characters: Elpheba in Wicked).

Favorite Holidays: CHRISTMAS!!! I love the music, the family, the cold nip in the air…this all might sound cheesy but I really do believe it makes people feel warm and cuddly inside!! My other favorite holiday is my Birthday, which is Jan. 20th—an Aquarius

Favorite Quote: “The only regrets in Life…are the risks you didn’t take!”

Best Part Of The Job: The glowing faces of my clients the minute the party begins, and the satisfying smiles they always have when the Pink Party has come to an end…it truly is the best feeling ever!!!

Champagne, wine, cheese and looking beautiful: What else could a girl ask for??

We had an amazing time out our Pink's Party and I know you and your bridal party will too. It's the ultimate luxury event. We left feeling so pampered and got compliments all night long! Alana is so much fun to work with and this is an opportunity you can't miss!! Call Alana today or visit her website:! More pictures to follow...
