-- Anyone planning a wedding, shower, or other type of event knows there are a lot of components involved and it is not always simple to iron out the details. Smarty Had A Party, an online retail store for elegant disposable dinnerware, is there to help minimize all those issues that inevitably arise when throwing a party. Smarty wants the entire party planning process to be smooth, so they have a highly active Facebook page, which is monitored from morning until approximately midnight, where fans are able to ask any party question, product related or not. There is no question too big or too small to ask, but when Smarty receives a message containing a heated question that requires some serious assessment, Smarty labels it as a “Smarty Situation.” Smarty Situations are reposted anonymously on their Facebook page along with a corresponding photo and an introduction calling all Smarties (the loving term appointed to customers) to offer their own advice. Smarty Situations have become very popular among fans, seen from their quick, yet long and thought-out responses to the post. They are typically posted every Wednesday.
Smarty Situations are not confined to any specific topic and have ranged from wedding-related dilemmas to uncomfortable social situation queries. Past examples have comprised of questions such as whether or not it is appropriate to have a cash bar at a wedding or if people considered taking excessive amounts of hotel amenities stealing. More personal ‘situations’
that were posed included if it would be acceptable for the bride to ask her sister to wear a dress that covers her tasteful tattoo or if it was okay for the bride to refrain from taking her fiance’s last name for the mere reason of not liking it.
Amy Nevad, Smarty Had A Party operation’s manager, said, “Smarty loves to interact with their fans, and the easiest way to do that is through their Facebook page. The page has actually become a type of forum, connecting Smarties together to share advice, encouragement, and awesome party ideas.”
