Welcome to my little slice of the internet, known as 440 Montgomery. If you’re here, it’s probably for a great reason. I’m sure you love throwing the cutest on-theme parties, but I know we have a ton more in common. If any of these are true for you, I know we would be the best of friends:

  1. How much do you want to be known for that one thing you bake? Answer: A lot. (Currently practicing my cheesecakes in the kitchen.)
  2. Do you spend most of your free time on Pinterest? My Pinterest browser history looks like Joanna Gaines-worthy interiors and Whole 30 recipes. (Even though we all know I’m never gonna really try Whole 30. I’m just going to think about trying it.)
  3. Do you love throwing parties for people and making them feel just the most special? Same! Actually, it’s my favorite thing to do in pretty much the whole world.



Hey there, Tanea here!

Loyal dog mom, natural lighting obsessor.

Right after I wake up in the morning, I spend at least 30 minutes soaking in the sunshine coming through my bedroom window with my little princess, Peanut. She is kinda my pride and joy and there’s only one person who loves her as much as I do: Casey, my fiance.

Then came home-ownership.

I named my blog after my home because it’s where it all began. It means so much to me to have a place just for us, me and the people (& doggo) I love most. We faced many ups and downs as new homeowners last summer, and some of the downs were really not great. However, some of the ups are super cool, like when I discovered my passion for hosting people, whether it just be my parents for dinner or all of our friends and family for an engagement party.

Our first space that we could make our own and invite loved ones into, it taught me the joys of connecting with people on a deeper level. Because connection doesn’t happen over a phone call or text message. It happens at 11:30 PM when you’re on your second glass of wine and laughing over all of the things you didn’t know you had in common.

And you know, if I get all that and a smile when they see all of the decorations I made for the party, well that’s just icing. Themed parties with the cutest decorations, most on-theme food you’ve ever seen, and a super welcoming atmosphere: they’re kind of my thing.

But it isn’t all sunshine and daisies.

These parties, they take time. Quite a bit of it, actually. And wouldn’t ya know, most people are pretty busy now-a-days. That’s where I decided to come in and offer my services: party designing.

I’ve made it my personal mission to give anyone who wants one a perfectly crafted party for whatever occasion they’re celebrating. Because I know that it’s not easy to throw the perfect shindig, but with my help I know they could.

I love to see the look on that little girls’ face when she sees 15 of her closest friends jump out from behind living room furniture to surprise her on her birthday.

I love to see friends connecting after the perfect party over a few beers and some laughs.

I just love it all, honestly.
