We have the new house so it seems natural to want to celebrate it finally happening (it took five long months to get it finalised after all!). I want a party of all parties to introduce all our friends to our new abode, thoughts in my head range from a Pims afternoon tea party (with lots of cream cakes too of course!) to a cocktail party with some handsome waiters thrown in for good measure.
On my shoe string budget though the best I will probably manage is a few cheap bottles of plonk. I do want the party to be remembered though; I have some good friends who supported me through ALL the moaning on about will we ever get the house!!!
I ordered the cocktail umbrellas in already, so that might be a sign to continue with that theme. I am going to host a separate party for the children, with an entertainer so the parents can have a welcome rest. But for our adult party, I was even thinking of making fancy dress compulsory.
Once I get an idea into my head I do tend to escalate it until it’s completely out of control! But like the cocktail umbrella’s I just had to have, us ladies could squeeze into glamorous cocktail dresses to wow our partners surely. I wish ace fancy dress did this one in red!
Hubbie would notice me then, at the moment we are so wrapped up in decorating the new house; we sadly have not had much time for each other. A party is a chance to unwind, gossip, make new memories. So I shall keep planning behind the scenes and hopefully one day soon you will see an update of how it went…
My friends are certainly egging me on to get the party started! I have quite a blend of people I know so it should make for a fascinating evening. Mind with enough alcohol to hand it can be nothing but a success hopefully (with an adequate supply of canapés to soak it all up of course!).
