I'm not sure if you all know this but I am representative for beso handbags. So I either host or attend beso trunk shows in my area. I signed on to be a rep. because I truly L*O*V*E shop owner Johanna's bags. That is the one and only reason!!
The first time I laid eyes on them I just knew, number one, that I HAD to OWN at least one, and number two, that Johanna and her bags were goin' places!!!
Seriously, these bags are gorgeous. They are all custom made. You get to design your own bag and the fabrics are all vintage. It couldn't get any better than that!!!
I am so proud to be a rep for beso handbags. If any of you are interested you should contact Johanna! She is a super sweet gal too!
Anyway, I'm blathering! The point it this is the trunk show I hosted on Saturday. I must admit my ego was a bit bruised because out of about 25 women that I invited only TWO showed up! And the two that did show up are my weekly play date friends!!! I realize that many of the women I invited really wanted to come but honestly had prior engagements........................ but 25???? It got me to thinking that I should stop planning my own parties and create a business creating other people's parties. Then I don't have to worry about who shows up but I can still have all the fun creating.
I was pretty bummed out. It just made me feel like an old ,washed up mom. Many of my long time girl friends are not married and do not have kids so I am totally out of the loop. The social events that they are attending just aren't a good fit for me anymore and vice versa. It's not at all like we don't WANT to see each other. It just simply doesn't work out. Your life just becomes so different when you have kids. No more 8 O'clock dinners at the bar downtown. It's more like 5:30 dinners while trying to hold one baby and feed the other while both are screaming. So unromantic.
Anyway I totally had one of those high school moments where I felt so totally forgotten. I thought, "I used to be so popular. What happened?" But I also used to have fabulous dinner parties late at night serving gobs of wine. Now I'm having an afternoon party and serving Perrier and breastfeeding my baby between conversation! Things have just changed! And don't get me wrong. I L*O*V*E my life and my babies and wouldn't dream of having it any other way but sometimes it's just hard.
Can anyone else relate to this??
So on to the party!!
Despite the lack of guests, the three of us had a wonderful time snacking and chatting and looking at gorgeous bags.
Here is the party!!!
I thought it might be the perfect chance to bring out my Tiffany piture that I never use.
I made New York crumb cake and brownies and decorated them with the adorable beso handbag lables I had made
The G*O*R*G*E*O*U*S bags
Look at all these gorgeous vintage fabric samples to choose from
