Everyone always asks me, “so where are your hot single friends?” I get it from girls and guys. Currently I have a winning record for setting up couples, but in the end, the relationships never lasted. So to take the pressure off everyone, I decided to throw us all under one roof and see who makes out with a companion. Or just makes out.
So it will be SINGLES ONLY. No married wing man or happily committed people allowed! Fingers crossed one of my friends brings some cutie pie I don’t know (although this is Houston, that’s highly unlikely).
I’m not going to blog the party, but for those of you trying to pull something like this off for a big group of people, I thought I would give you my resources and tips.
- Invitations – Paperless Post
- Flowers – Lexis Florist
- Food – Culinaire’s “Effortless Taste” menu
- Fun cocktail napkins – Sur La Table
Paperless post invitations are a fraction on what you would spend on a similar printed invite and obviously easier to track RSVP’s. I prefer them to Pingg and Evite too – just nicer looking.
Lexis is one of the best florists in Houston. I could have saved some cash on doing the flowers myself, but since it’s a bigger party, I handed this task over to the pros.
No way I am skilled enough to cook for 50 so that was delegated as well. The food I chose does not require servers which saves a TON of cash. Service trays and warmers are included. Always ask caterers if they have a menu like this. With people cutting back on expense, this has become more prevalent in the industry.
Check back this weekend and I’ll update this post with pictures.
