With about 6 close friends and several "friends of friends" and "friends I would like to know better" who are active on Pinterest, it was about time that we put our pinning into action. I literally threw the party together in 2 weeks.
I started with a simple Paperless Post invite with the party information and the
1. Make 5 of one craft to share
2. Bring a food item and 15 printed recipes to share.
3. Bring your favorite quote.
*** I loosely made it a holiday theme... but of course there are so many themes- health and wellness, kid crafts, gift giving, happy hour... Valentine's Day, beauty, So Simple, organization...
I also let everyone invite their friends, I was afraid of no one being able to come and I wanted everyone to have someone there that they know. It was great to meet new people and get to know others better.
Here are the results- So amazing!
|The gift table- I was so afraid that there would be |
duplicates of the same item.
|Nicole and Chee- |
Santa wine glasses
|Val made dry erase boards, |
all were different and so cute in their own way!
|Thumbtack Christmas trees!|
|Of course, I had to do some Christmas decorating too!|
