Home Party Pictures !

I have pictures of my table and the munchies. That's not much, but I am waiting on the other pictures from another friend.

Here's my table ! Not a lot of stuff, considering there was only 7 people coming. We made the invitations a bit too last minute, and since this is back-to-school for a lot of people, it was harder to get them to come. I sold a lot of bigger sets, and I am very happy. Bigger sets, bigger prices, bigger donations.

The red tablecloth had an amazing effect ! At first, I wanted black, but red did such a nice effect, I didn't bother getting a black one. Next time, I will be bringing more displays, I also plan on buying a real revolving earrings display, because there were so many earrings it became complicated to put them all on those frosted glasses. I would also need 2 more busts and 4 more bracelet displays ! It was not bad for a first time, and I am very proud of how my table looks =)

Since this was a cocktail night, we had munchies, cocktails and punches ! See the carved glass punch bowl ? That's mine. I never thought I would use it =P I will keep it for other cocktail nights to come... The Hawaiian punch was excellent and the peach/white cranberry sangria was awesome as well. I will soon post the recipes here =)

We had mini pizzas, stuffed phyllo dough bites and mini pastries to offer. The atmosphere was friendly and people enjoyed the fact that there was first, no pressure to buy, and second, that they could sip a drink while browsing beautiful jewelry. This is a winning formula, that can work for summer and winter alike. Just change the cocktails served and the bites. Melon and prosciutto would be awesome for summer, along with a cup of rose wine or hawaiian punch !

I absolutely loved the experience ! I am already preparing for November.
