Three years ago, Cambridge moms Nicole Howard and Raelyn Ward met through Front Porch Forum after responding to a post looking for Girl Scout leaders. The two quickly realized that, in addition to having a knack for cookie selling, they both loved planning Pinterest-inspired celebrations. In August, the pair launched Whim Of Whimsy, a party planning and decor rental company that takes some of the pressure off throwing a birthday bash, Halloween shindig or baby shower. The business rents out conventional items like glassware, banners and cake stands, in addition to specialty décor like a ship's steering wheel for a pirate party or sparkly blue deer figurines for a forest-themed fête. They also offer services like filling jelly-bean jars, personalized shopping and party design. Howard and Ward offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to prospective customers, followed by a fee structure based on services and products. The pair's aim, they say, is to help turn their customers' party dreams into reality.
