Anyone who’s ever planned a birthday party or baby shower understands that the devil can be in the details. It doesn’t matter if it’s Baby’s First Birthday or a Sweet Sixteen soiree – all those details add up and can quickly become so overwhelming you might be tempted to throw up your hands and call Chuck E. Cheese… again.
There’s nothing wrong with good ole’ Chuck, but if you’ve got a special event coming up, Betsy Pruitt at Belly Feathers needs to be on your speed dial. She’s a master of all things party planning and design, and she specializes in how to pull it off on a budget.
Betsy created Belly Feathers after she struggled to find the specific style she wanted for her own wedding. Her background in graphic design and 10 years experience planning corporate and special events allowed her to create party supplies that she loved at an affordable price.
After the wedding, Betsy started designing printable party supplies that allow her customers to print as many invitations, party banners, cupcake toppers, favor tags, and decorations as they need for one low price. These items range from $2.50 – $50 and are emailed as a PDF file designed to print on a standard home printer. They even come with simple-to-follow-instructions and suggested tools and supplies, so they’re really easy to do even for moms that might be crafting impaired.
Belly Feathers serves busy moms worldwide who love a great bargain. “My moms really want to host parties that their guests will talk about for months to come. They want something unique that you can’t run pick up at the store.”
The invitations are absolutely FANTASTIC! You’re totally awesome. Thanks again, and again, and again!

Printables aren’t all that Betsy can do – she consults with her clients and blogs about party planning too. Her ideas for throwing an amazing Halloween bash for kids details what to buy and where to find it, all with your budget in mind!
As an entrepreneur, taking advantage of the tools available to her online was one of the secrets to Betsy’s success. “We’re so blessed to live in the internet age when you can do that with zero or almost no money invested. I started selling my products on Etsy.com at a cost of $0.20 per listing, and I used a free blog to promote it.” She recommends the books Smarter Faster Cheaper by David Siteman Garland and Poke the Box by Seth Godin, which echo this advice.
Now is the perfect time to sample Belly Feathers for your party or special event. Betsy has created an eerie and cheery Halloween Printable Party Collection that launched this month that a lucky Rocket City Mom Reader can enter to win. This collection is super cute… so cute that Party City will be featuring it in their social media campaigns for Halloween!
