To be frank, I was not very interested in throwing a party this month. (I'm only slightly afraid to say this out loud.) I knew going in to this experiment that this feeling would occur, but I wasn't entirely sure how I would handle it.
This month, I was not in a creative mood, and gathering inspiration felt forced. A couple weeks in to the month, I knew I had to get my act together and nail down a theme, not to mention a date and time. I knew if I wanted my friends to come, I needed to invite them with enough notice. Instead of pushing through these feelings, I tried to listen to what my mind and body was telling me. It sounded something like this: "Just do what feels right. Trust your gut. Keep it low key." This party, like all parties, could be whatever I wanted it to be. Namaste.
I threw together a Facebook invite, and days before the event, posted the weather forecast. Abundant sunshine? Thank you Mother Nature!
The biggest surprise was, a few days leading up to the event, I felt the most excited I have felt thus far, ramping up to a party. I was really enjoying using my color palette and the crafts came naturally. I wasn't panicking about how much I had to get done, and I was actually looking forward to the party itself and spending time with my friends!
I can’t wait to show you what I came up with!
