To be honest, I hate hosting party. I hate it when I made so much effort to organize a party and nobody even bother to response to my invitation 😦
Then I started all the “Nobody loves me” kinda thoughts. Then I wipe my tears and start to message and call everyone, “Hi! Are you coming to my party this Saturday?” (In a cheerful happy tone).
Most of the time the response will be:
“Oh, who is on your guest list?”
“Erm… I am not sure…”
“Ok, but I’ll drop by after A’s party and I can’t stay long cos’ I need to rush to B’s party.”
“Is C going? I will go only if she goes.”
“Do I need to RSVP?? I eat very little…”
“Well, it depends. I can’t tell you now. But just don’t count me in first ok?”
And sometimes people said they will come but never show up. And when you call them, they tell you they forgot or their boyfriend/girlfriend just decided to take them out for dinner and they are not coming… It sucks right?
(You may think it’s funny, but it really happened to me before!!)
However, this year, I have got a list full of nice and lovely people who response promptly and kind enough to offer help on getting stuffs and preparing food (I still can’t believe it!).
Then I thought to myself, probably all the hassles are there to bring out the joy! (No pain no gain right?!) *Big Smile* Planning on the decoration is particularly fun for me. Like this candy tray:
Table setups and other stuffs…
Then on the program: magic show, songs, games, presents…
Self-painted frozen toes:
Christmas to me is always magical, dreamy and somehow romantic… And I believe Christmas is the time of the year, to relax, to holiday and to spend quality time with family and friends! And having so many people around to celebrate together makes this day even more merrier, lovable and memorable…
Considering the joy and all the fun:
BABY, let’s do it again!!
