Party Planning Made Easy

"I hate housework! You make the beds, you do the dishes — and six months later you have to start all over again." - Joan Rivers
We believe in women's parties. They’re like mini vacations away from all the responsibilities and stress of day to day life. So, in our efforts to get you to party more, here are our party preparation tips to insure your party success.  :)

 BATHROOM
 - Replace the ratty flannel PJs from the bathroom door hook with some sexy lingerie.
 - Remove the Preparation H from the medicine cabinet. Disguise it as toothpaste or Nair.
 - Hide the anti-teeth-grinding mouth guard in the laundry basket.
KITCHEN
 - Scrape out the bottom of the oven so the house doesn’t smell like it’s on fire when you heat up the hor d’oeuvres.
 - Hide the old stacks of mail in the washing machine.
 - Find glassware that looks like a matching set – or at least find some glasses that don’t have paint on them from the kids’ school project.
 - Find the ice bucket that the kids used to catch bugs. Maybe rinse it out.
LIVING ROOM / DINING ROOM
 - Toss the Enquirer magazines and replace them with Newsweek or Good Housekeeping.
 - Wipe down the dining room light fixture that hasn’t been dusted since it was installed. (These things should be self-cleaning like ovens.)
OUTSIDE
 - Accidentally let your neighbor’s dog out of the yard so he won’t bark all evening.
 - Blow the leaves from your front porch and lawn into your neighbors’ yard.
 - Bribe the neighborhood kids to “poop scoop” your yard. Tell them they can keep whatever they collect.
FAMILY
 - Send the kids to granma’s where they can have hours of fun terrorizing her cat.
 - Send the spouse out to run errands. Make sure the list is long enough to keep her/him out for 12 hours.
GETTING YOURSELF READY
 - Wash out your armpits since you won’t have time to shower.
- Find something that doesn’t look like you wore it to a college party in the 70’s or 80’s (and make sure it still fits).

Finally, before the party, make one of my favorite appetizers called Party Dress Veggie Pizzas. I’ve included the recipe below:
The Party Dress Veggie Pizzas
Roll out refrigerated crescent roll dough and cut with a dress cookie cutter. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Mix one 8 oz package of cream cheese with half a package of Hidden Valley Fiesta Ranch Dip Mix. Once the “dresses” have cooled, spread the cream cheese mixture on each dress. Design your Vera Wang gown with items such as:  red bell pepper, pimento, sliced American cheese, chopped black olives, grated carrot, cherry tomato, spinach leaves, broccoli, cucumber strips, etc.

I'd like to add what works for me when I host a party. Just prior to my guests arrival I have two shots of Tequila. After that it doen't matter if the house burns down, I'm a happy camper!
