Hosting A Home Happy Hour

We canNOT believe it’s almost November?! Although it still feels like summer here in Waco, TX, we know cooler temps are coming…yay! We absolutely love hosting friends and family this time of year. Inviting people into your home is a wonderful way to show hospitality and we promise it doesn’t need to cause stress.

Purdy Girl Parties tips for a successful Home Happy Hour every single time.

  1. If you’re stressed, your guests will feel stressed. No one really cares if your home is spotless or if your laundry room is picked up, or if you have your hair in a bun! Our first tip is to greet each guest with a calm heart. Sounds easy right?! You’d be surprised how often this first tip is ignored. Greeting friends and family is SO important and sets the tone for the evening.  It lets them know immediately that you are happy they are in your home.
  2. Set food and drinks out for guests to serve themselves. A sit down meal is awesome but can at times lend to awkwardness.  For a Home Happy Hour it should feel casual. Keep the menu simple and only offer a few drinks. We love cracking open a few bottles of wine and a signature cocktail that is premixed. We always include a non-alcoholic option as well.
  3. Remember to have FUN! The whole point is to relax, laugh, and spend time with loved ones or get to know your neighbors better. Setting a Pandora station on low takes tension off guests when they first arrive.  So recap: greet guests, self serve food and drinks, and have fun! You’ve got this.

Spider Man Birthday Party

Another one of our own celebrates a birthday in April!  James Wright is turning three and he loves all things Spidey!  He requested the Jump-N-Place, Spider Man and pizza.  Done!  The best thing about a party at a venue like this is you don’t have to clean up your house!  Also, you can keep the decorations simple and have one main focal point.  We made the dessert table just that with a super hero cityscape.  Adding tiny details to the rest makes for a cute table.  The apple sauces got toughened up with red capes and the banner is made out of old Spider Man comic books.  The kiddos each got a Spider Man mask and a cup of popcorn for their favor.  Such a fun and easy party!

Wallace Rehearsal Dinner

We loved getting to help one of our favorite teachers at WCS plan and execute her sons rehearsal dinner. Maybe it’s because I have four sons and know this will be my party to throw one day, or perhaps it’s because the night before a wedding is filled with so much joy and anticipation of what is to come. These are your people, your village the ones that know you inside and out and love you because of, or in spite of it! But whatever the reason, I have a soft spot for this special part of the wedding weekend. And let’s get real, when rustic reclaimed wood and endless white bouquets come together, what’s not to love?!  In addition to the centerpieces which were overflowing with fresh blooms, candles and pictures of the bride and groom, we created invitations, a personalized menu and kids table activities.
