Dear New Mom,
I have considered this idea myself. Being the mother of 3 and enjoying the planning side I thought it would be a good idea. Just keep in mind that if you are planning parties or events that you would probably have to be away from home during evenings and weekends when you events take place. If that works for you, then great, I say go for it! I weighed the pro's and con's and decided being away from home on nights and weekends was not in the cards for me at this time. But if you have a spouse or relative that can help you out I would utilize that your advantage.
If you are just focusing more on the decoration part of it, your time constraints may not be so lack luster. But remember if it is at a hall or a surprise you may only have a particular time frame for which to decorate.
Just some food for thought. Good luck!
