I have a confession to make. Ever since I was a child I was petrified to have a party. As I have mentioned quite a few times, I am an introvert, but I LOVE people. I have a true affinity for [smart] people. But I’ve always been afraid to have a party because I feared no one would show up. That is a nightmare of mine. That is also why I make it a point to go to everyone else’s party. I want them to know that I love them and I care, even if no one else shows up. However, this summer I put my big girl panties on and decided to have a party. There are quite a few friends of mine that I don’t get to see very often. A lot of us have kids, or are just generally busy. I missed them and wanted to get them together just to relax, eat, drink and be merry!
It went down this weekend and I am so ecstatic. I had a party and people came. They really came! And they liked it. They actually liked it! Yes, i do realize I sound like a 5 year old, but it’s so serious for me. I had a great time, and they said they did as well. I love planning events, but I really only plan other peoples since I have my own business as an event planner. This was one of the first times I did it for myself.
Here are some of the pictures from the party. I of course did the decorations. The wine glasses I actually make and sale online, but I thought it would be awesome for my guests to have them in their favorite color. makeup done by my beautiful new friend Tee Jay.
I had such a great time and my confidence has been boosted. I love my friends. They totally made my weekend!
