My husband and I were in the middle of a mini kitchen remodel, and I was worried about having a house full of people if our kitchen was in shambles. So, I just invited four of my closest girlfriends from college, but only two could attend. Even though it wasn't a rip roaring party, it was nice to catch up with old with friends. Plus I had LOTS of fun decorating and getting creative.
I made the signage and food labels myself (except for the wine labels). I also did some of the baking. But my husband had to cook dinner. Cooking is not my thing. I can do it if I have to, but not while also trying to entertain guests. I can't multitask while cooking. I can only cook if I have zero distractions. Otherwise I get super flustered and stressed. Anyway, here are some of the party pics . . .
I invited my friends using this e-invitation I found at Punchbowl. It was super cute but I changed the wording to say something like "Get On Your Broom and Fly on Over". Next year I plan to invite more people. I also have a lot more creative decorating ideas!
I don't plan on doing any Thanksgiving decorating or entertaining this year, so I'll have to come up with some other blog topics for November. Hmmmm . . . what to do next.
