Intro to a Stylish Soiree

Well, I think party planning is becoming a bigger that for more more people, and it can get really overwhelming with all the options that you see out there online on pictures, and we feel this pressure, at least I do as a mom or a wife too present, like a really amazing, beautiful party, all while I work and take care of my kids and do everything else or my list in life, and and that is why I love our new party, good line from my mind's eye, because everything coordinates, everything is already really beautiful, so you can use it just as it is straight out of the box, or you can do just a little tiny things that only take a few minutes to customize them and make it your oh, so we're going to go to shop again, and this time we're going to be using things from all different categories that you're seeing here. But we've got our collections listed by banners are party fans consider tea party picks will be talking all of these things, honey cone balls are tassel banners, all sorts of items ...

you can scroll through and see each specific item and where they're listed, you can also go to the top, and we have different collections from each line that coordinates so we have a trend line that's our coral mint and gold line we also have a craft line, which is just like it sounds craft with gold, we have a vintage line, we have a chalk line, we have a fancy line holiday and halloween, so isn't shop by collection, or you can shop by specific item on, we're going to be going all across the board on the item in this class today, so let's, switch back to our power point. I think that one of the most important things when you're throwing a party is the coordination and also creating death. Those were the two things that mean, hear me saying creating depth and projects it's the same for interior design, or for just a display for a party, and so we're always trying to come up with different, unique ways that we can create depth in the overall setting, like a dessert table, which we're going to show, and just the second on dso I want that kind of layering effect, and you can do that by adding in different products to layer so here's a few you see here are honey comb balls are tassel banners on dh, they're layered and displayed different hype levels and different depths, same here, you can see that we've layered one product on top of another products, and it gives a really luxurious I feel this is our trend line on the right there on the left for you on, and you are it's, one of our most popular line and the mint and quarrel, and then on the right, you're seeing our fancy line, which is meant for any sort of fancy suarez their wedding. We also have christmas that's, my scottie dog, he made an appearance on, and so you can mix and match, but it also works with the fancy line or the craft line, whether you want to go like a little bit more gold and glamour, or maybe a little bit more arrest iq and captain e um, this is a brand new products that we're offering on our website it's under card stock, and that buffalo check while you see in the background is actually made out of twelve by twelve paper just layered so the blacks and the grace and the white squares are all squares of card stock, and we have a little video clip you can watch on howto put it together and the kit come and you can see here again, we're layering, we're creating different hype levels were creating different depths with the table and with the wall to create a lot of interests, and this is a sneak peek of our newest card stock kit, which is obviously a plaid, and we have a little video about that, too, and no one noticing that yet. So it's brand new in here, but today we're going to be talking about a few things, and the first thing I wanted to talk about is my deep love and obsession with branches. I use them all the time you can see them here in a halloween display. I actually have a set of branches over my own kitchen table that I always hang up christmas, they are gold and you can see here we've kind of created the same look we bought these branches from michael's just for a few dollars for a package, I think there's two packages there, we've wired them together, and then we've hung them using as really strong fishing line, so, like we were going to go fishing for like a giant to an ira marlin there something you want that have your weight fishing line, and the reason I like to do that is because then when I'm haiming hanging items from the ceiling, I can hang them multiple depths instead of having to put tons of holes or hooks in my ceiling. I can just do two and everything else can come off the branches, so we're going to hang a few things for you here to start creating our little desert display.

Watched a little of this and was disappointed by her frequent mumbling, making it impossible to understand quite a bit of what she was saying. I didn't find her ideas very innovative but didn't watch the whole thing.
