So most companies, if they know what's good for them, take advantage of social media. There are people whose job it is to sit around and blog, tweet and update their status on Facebook. Can you believe that? Why isn't someone paying me? Geeeeez, I do this ish for free. Anyway, my point is that even though I make zero monies from this here blog, I've got a corresponding Facebook page and Twitter account for it. And I use them. So when I started Bottle Pop Party Co., I knew I had to set up accounts for both. But man, keeping up with all of them is a bit much. So there was no way I was starting a separate party blog, especially when the internet is already saturated with them. Plus, I figure you dudes would want to check out what I'm up to party-wise, right? So since I'm just going to post the stuff on my personal blog here, you can feel free to pin the crap out of any good pictures and get me famous on the Pinterest. I'd love that. Speaking of Pinterest, is it cool to pin your own things? Self-promote if you will? I've been wondering about that...
Anyway, this past weekend, I was handling a dinner party. It was a religous group that has a catered dinner every year in the fall. They gave me their specific menu and I called up my trusty caterer, Main Line Catering, who I've worked with a bunch of times. For a fantastic price, they provided all of the food, drinks, dishes, everything. Like Super Grover, I showed up. Well I showed up with table linens, centerpieces and menus to try to add a bit of cuteness for very little money. I also brought John, who served the food. Cheap labor, ha.
I just dropped some tealights into a few lace and jute twine wrapped mason jars and set them on burlap runners and called it a day (night).
I also designed these cute little mason jar menus and tied them off with a piece of twine as well.
And as much as I'd love to have picture perfect lighting everytime, I'd dare to say that most events happen indoors, at night. So here's the general look.
Of course, as soon as dinner was served, the overhead lighting went on and sorta ruined the ambiance. Such is life. Ya gotta see what your eating, ya know? But all of the guests were thrilled with the food and service. I even got a bunch of compliments on the menus and they all took them home so yay me!
I also had an Under the Sea 3rd birthday party this past weekend that I'll share soon!
