I am a huge extrovert! As a result of my extroversion, I absolutely love to throw parties. Any excuse to celebrate and party is welcome by me :)
I recently hosted a tea/thankful party for my Bible study. It was such a fun time, and I loved being able to open up my home to others!
I think people worry too much about being the perfect hostess. Here's a small tip: you won't be the perfect hostess.
Something will go wrong. You'll burn the pastries. The batteries will die in the speakers. Parking will be a nightmare.
Things go wrong ALL the time. No one is perfect, no event goes absolutely seamless. Mistakes and mishaps are a part of life, it is what you do with the mistake that matters!
For this party, I focused on the color scheme and the theme I wanted. Our ministry is called Delight, and I wanted to focus on this idea that God delights in each and every one of us. We are His treasures.
I have listed my tips below!
Food makes everyone happy. Pick a good, guest friendly menu! For this party, we had: goat cheese +crackers, mini cheesecakes (my precious little sister Peyton made them), fruit, cartelized onion+feta tarts, scones, and more!
The drinks were as follows: sparkling lemonade, water, hot cocoa and various teas.
My favorite part of the party was the thankful bag I made. I had each lady write down what she was thankful for. An attitude of gratitude can reshape your whole life!
Thanks for reading!
