Really just typing out my plans here to make sure I didn't miss anything.... Well, today is the day. I am hoping for some good results. I have 20 rsvp's and then a lot of maybe's. I do my cust. app. with a few friends who sell other things but the bulk of the customers showing up are mine. We found a place in town (more central location) and i traded PC products for the rental! It is a nice banquet room that can hold proabably 100 max... perfect for what we are doing. I am serving: chorizo dip Potato chowder Southwest meatloaf Mex. Chicken Lasagna Speedy Pork Fried Rice the Mint Triangles mini carrot cake cups I borrowed a couple DCB's from my friends and I have a chafer to keep the pork dish warm. I give out tickets for different things: rsvping, bringing a guest, buying $30 or more, etc.. so this year I was smart (I think) and made all the tickets in increments of 5 and then had my husband tear off sets of 5 last night so they are ready to go and we don't have to mess with tickets so much this time! Little administrative thing, but oh well. OH! I stopped by a bank to invite a girl I know and told her to pass the invite on to her co-workers. The manager heard me and donated a $20 gift card for the drawing if I would set his brochures out. Well, ok.. I can do that! I have 3 round tables for people to set and talk/eat and I'm going to put the new products on them as centerpieces for folks to look at... I'll have a special table with the green cloth that will have the gifts for people to choose from. Beverages - tea and water. nothing fancy.... OK, think i'm good. Time to load up and go! NAPKINS!! Knew I was forgetting something! Thanks CS! That is why I was writing it all out! LOL!!
