My First *Blessings Unlimited* Party

So many of you were kind enough to email me and comment with encouragement for my first Blessings Unlimited party, that I thought I'd share some pictures today. I'll save the info. on the company for another day....Today, it's all about eye candy!

Before I even opened my boxes of "loot," some people had already claimed the packages and made their own storefront.
They abandoned the shop when I asked for their commercial license, but it's just as well, because it was their bedtime. I waited until the house was quiet to unpack all my new pretties and to set things up for the party.

I had my own little check-out table in the family room, embellished with some twig pumpkins and a metal star from Target's Dollar Spot....
Those cute little blocks are called "Blessings Blocks" and I was delighted that they came with a booklet showing you how to spell out all sorts of words with the different colors, letters, and decorative accents. The Nester used them in several different ways when she hosted her party, and they're probably one of my favorite things!

I used my dining room table to display most of my products.

My table cloths?

I used some extra drop cloths, and I layered books underneath scraps of burlap to give some of the items more height.

Want to see more pretties?

This message board is actually a cutting board as well, and it comes with the easel!

I love that Blessings Unlimited even has super cute packs of cards you can purchase for any occassion!

And what good would a party be without food?!

My Sunday Cake was the main attraction for the Saturday night party. I made homemade Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake for Tuesday morning. Both received good reviews.

If you notice that small children are conspicuously absent from the photos, that's because I hired a fabulous sitter to keep them out of my hair entertain them on Saturday night. The girls were enchanted, and I didn't have to stress.

I didn't have a huge turnout to either party, but I did make some sales, and I earned $135 in free product since I was technically the hostess!

I don't want to keep blathering on, but I did want to share some photos from my very first Girls' Get-Togethers. I am hoping to have my own website soon. When I launch that, I'll plan another post to tell you how I got the harebrained to open a home business!

Thanks again to each of you who commented and emailed me to wish me well. I appreciate your support and encouragement...more than you know!

Hope your week is off to a fabulous start!

Blessings to you today. {wink}
