Jewelry Party!

On Saturday, May 16th I had a jewelry party. Lia Sophia to be exact. I planned it for a bad day because a lot of people had graduation stuff to go to and I was worried no one would show up. After all, my facebook group I had created for the event only had 4 people attending, and 2 were me and the advisor.

But I make good food, so everyone decided to come. Just joking. A lot of people really did come though, so I was very pleased.
For the event we had strawberries and grapes, chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate crackeltop cookies, cheese dip, and Mexican dip (which my mom made for me). here is a beautiful picture of some of the food.

Everything turned out really good, and tasted great too. Which I was glad about because I had never made the cookies before and I sometimes mess up first tries.

Even better, all of my guests seemed to be having fun. Two booked parties of their own! My advisor, who is a really good friend, was thrilled.

Here's a pic of all the girls we could gather at that moment.

Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of everyone. O well. :)

Anyways, I did pretty well at the party. Several people didn't order, which I was totally okay with. After all, it is kind of expensive. 2 girls cancelled their order the next day. I'm not really sure why they even decided to order, because I don't feel like I put any pressure on anyone... o well again.

Anyways, On the Monday after my party G's mom got me another order, and I was planning on "closing" the party on Tuesday. Tuesday night, my mom dropped off 2 more orders and with the three of them it almost doubled my sales. (My mom's work friends spent $102, $120, and $190 and G's mom's friend spent $85) Of course, I understand my friends can't spend that much and I definitely don't blame them!

The jewelry arrived via UPS yesterday! I trifled through everyone's stuff and it is all really pretty. I think everyone will be pleased with their orders!

I had a very hard time deciding what to do with my hostess credit. There was SO much cute stuff to choose from! You guys will have to wait to see what I got (even though I already have the pictures ready!) I have to go do some stuff before work. I know... how will you ever wait?
