ST Sunday, Melissa K 4-27-18-1

Hi! I’m Melissa Sunday, the mom behind So Festive– a website all about simple holiday and party ideas for families!

My mission is simple! I want to help you celebrate life simply. Whether you’re looking for a holiday or party idea, fun new family tradition, or family travel tips, my goal is to share real, easy ideas. Life is to be celebrated. But it doesn’t need to be overly expensive or complicated.

I get my brown hair, big cheeks, and passion to celebrate from my mom, Marilyn, who was the most festive person. Ever.

4 Things You Should Know About Her:

1.  She wasn’t afraid to turn up Kenny G’s holiday album full blast. Even before Thanksgiving.

2. Our friends didn’t come to hang out with us, they came to party with her. And her original 1960’s Barbie Game.

3.  She always had a secret stash of M&Ms.

4. Her favorite late night treat was popcorn and grape juice. A perfect combo.

She passed away from cancer when I was 15, so I started this website in 2009 in her honor. 

It’s now a place thousands of moms come to get simple & real holiday ideas.
