I have the best customers! One of my absolute favorites is Melissa, a client I met in the Portage Park neighborhood of Chicago while doing a pop-up market in 2016. She is an absolute gem, and offered to host a Galentine’s Day themed jewelry party showcasing my work. The only catch? I’m a little embarrassed to admit, but I was super late to the game on Parks + Rec. I had a couple other awesome customers who were best friends that would come in every year for Galentine’s to get one another gifts, and I guess I must have missed the explanation! At the time Melissa had mentioned it, I’m afraid I hadn’t seen the show yet at all. She was really excited to have a party, but she made me promise to watch the whole series before she would host a party for me. I’m so glad I kept my promise! This has totally become one of my favorite shows ever!
I don’t normally watch a lot of TV, but I have to say, I was immediately hooked. I binge watched the entire series in few short weeks! Once I had done my homework, I contacted her and she got going on getting everything together. I could never have imaged how awesome it was going to be. This girl is a real Knope-it-all, and I mean that in the best possible way 😉
There were endless customized props from the show popping up during the evening. Clearly a true, dedicated fan, she really thought of everything – from tiny waffle appetizers, to Burt Macklan’s FBI gear, Snake Juice (!), and even an Entertainment 720 pillowcase! She even set up a photo booth so guests could snap pics with all the amazing goodies she provided. Girl went all out, and every single person had an incredible time. I was beyond impressed with her hostessing acumen. She did Leslie Knope proud!
While this was definitely a special event, I love doing these jewelry parties in general! They’re always a good time. It’s always so fun to meet people and work in this kind of setting.
Are you interested in hosting a jewelry party? It’s a great option for charity events and fundraisers, corporate events, or if you just want Treat Yo’self and have an awesome ladies night for your best gal pals.
I’m happy to give you more info how hosting a jewelry party works! Just contact me, and I’ll fill you in on the deets, as the one and only Tom Haverford would say. 🕴😎
