it’s the final countdown.

only 5 more days till my birthday and 4 more till I have friends over!

I realized today I’ve never actually hosted a party before. There are so many things I have to do! I would have liked to go crazy with decorating for the party but I just don’t know if there will be time. cleaning is my main priority.

Now if time was infinite, here are a few images that would inspire my decorating:

 Maybe I’ll have time to do a bit of prettying up once the cleaning is done.

Next on my to do list is to create a good music playlist. This should be fun, I have a decent library of all kinds of music. I may throw in some conway twitty somewhere in the middle to freak people out. I’m not too worried about music, ill make some good mashes of styles. (and I’m open to suggestions)

Now food, I definitely am going to be a Martha and make a few interesting VEGETARIAN apetizers. I have a few ideas for snacks and alcoholic snacks but they need to be a surprise!

I already know what I’m going to wear (… more or less). I have a new dress and my sister is making me a necklace for the occasion. I’m getting pretty excited to share my appartment with all my awesome friends who don’t exactly live down the road.

My family is coming over for dinner before the party. (yup, killing 2 birds with one vaccum -I wonder how that pigeon is doing?) so I also need to make sure I get bbq food for the fam. (damn meat eaters!) and figure out what kind of veggie dish I want to make.  I’d really like to make my meat(less)loaf but maybe it should just be an all BBQ meal.

So here’s my to do list for  this week:
1) finish cleaning
2) create music playlist
3) find recipes
4) go grocery shopping
5) go shop for decorations

Hmmm looks like it’s going to be another busy week! I think this calls for some list making! (YAY!!!) Sadly I always write lists at work and then forget them there… that’s very useful.

One thought on “it’s the final countdown.

  1. OOOOOOOOOOh i love the photos you posted. I have about a million similar ones stashed in a folder on my desktop that I rifle through whenever I start to decorate my new apt in my head. i love the idea of putting tea lights in old quart jars on the porch, and obviously white string lights are divine.. I’m going to overflow my apt with fresh flowers when I have my (haha ‘our’ good thing the Manfriend doesn’t stalk my blogging friends posts as well) apt warming part-a. Plus a few (or 10) bottles of cheap white wine are always a hit.

    I’ve become the worst sporadic blogger.. I’ve been dealing with html (aka the devil) issues while getting my new design for up.. everything is ready cept for the lookbook because javascript (aka the devil’s bratty spoiled kid) is being difficult. However, I’m going to a cookout at a friends tonite and I promise to have photo overload, PLUS more snarky merl dialogue to sassify you sharks tomorrow.
