It is six o’clock and I am getting ready for tonight’s event. I feel so giddy and just know everyone will have a wonderful time. I am so glad Marsha helped me put together the outfit for this party. So much time was spent on the preparations that I hardly had any time to get the ensemble together… No worries, the bubbly will calm me down.
My guests should be arriving just at dusk, when then temperature will be perfect for a Texas Summer Soiree. Good thing I planned on the air conditioned tent that Ann Onnusko recommended. It will be so dreamy to see the lights shining thru it as they arrive. I wonder what Yvonne will be wearing. She said she is bringing friends. I can't wait to meet them all.
I know the designers will enjoy the goodie bag I have put together for them as a token of my appreciation for all of the fabulous work they have done. Let me see… There were 8 designers, plus my dear Amanda, and Marsha, and I can’t forget Cynthia or my dear reader Angela …
When mentioning the personalized stationery I must remember to say S – my-thson, not S-myth-son. And I hope they find Clive Christian’s Imperial Majesty to their liking. I know they will be delighted to receive a couture hat from Anya and one of Marsha’s fabulous bespoke creations. The group trip to Monte Carlo staying at the Hotel de Paris should top it all off nicely.
The guests are going to be ecstatic when I announce the line up for The Living Room Edition of my Designer Challenge. I must toast celebrating the past designers and welcoming the newest team:
6/30 Crystal (Plush Palate)
7/7 Kellie Cashon (Cashon & Co.)
7/14 Elie Fournier (Punctuation Mark)
7/21 Will (Bright Bazaar)
7/28 Laura Ingalls (Decor to Adore)
8/4 Marija Stephens (Holding Court)
8/11 Cassity (Remodelaholic)
8/18 Erica Cook (Moth Design)
I better make haste, the guests will be arriving any minute now… Oh, I almost forgot the parting gifts for all of my wonderful blogger friends: their own iPads with a gorgeous handmade Vaja case. I hope Mary Ann makes it to the party.
