2013 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue Launch Party

Another fantastic Catalogue Launch Party done and dusted!! We had an amazing night.  I spent weeks planning and making and creating alongside my ever helpful sister, and amazing friend who owns and runs her own party planning business Lille Parti.  

We had goodie bags for our 25 guests upon their arrival, with a beautiful treat of Macadamia Toffee, and their make & take kit (and some other fun stuff too).  We had a couple of great demonstrations - one was on embellishments.  I demonstrated how to jazz up your antique brads by embossing them using coloured embossing powder.  I also showed everyone the brand new moulding clay and the wonderful things you can create with it.  Our other demonstration was on washi tape!! Love that stuff.  It is SO versatile and user friendly.  It has so many uses, it really comes down to how far you can stretch your imagination!  

Throughout the night we handed out Stampin' Up! paper money to people who asked questions, answered questions, participated where necessary, who helped out and so on.  At the end of the night we auctioned off TWO lucky door prizes.  The auction was alot of fun and I am already pencilling it in for next years launch party!  Our third lucky door prize was drawn which meant that we had lots of happy people heading home with some beautiful new products.  

Our food table was planned, prepared and decorated by Lille Parti.  There was a delicious yoghurt bar with gorgeous granola and fresh berries to mix in.  There was a DELICIOUS nutella dip for chopped bananas to be dipped in followed by sprinkles and crushed nuts and smashed oreos.  There was delicious spring rolls with sweet & sour sauce.  And oh my, the chocolate mousse shots!! 

But wait, there's more!  On the kitchen bench was the hot chocolate bar! You popped your hot chocolate ball into a mug, added hot water and some milk from the milk frother, and then there were delicious treats to pop in there.  Jersey caramels, marshmallows, Lindt flakes... you name it!  

It was an extremely fun night.  I am tired, but am so glad, as always, that the night was such a success.  I'm so lucky to have such fantastic customers.  Here are some, of my favourite photos from the night that I captured.  There are still lots to come as I ran out of time to photograph some things, and need to get my hands on them.  I will share them ASAP.
