Eat, Drink and Trade!

It's a Swap Party!
Ok Ladies....
How many times do you get in your closet and can't find a thing to wear?
Well, with budgets shrinking in most households, I thought this would be the next best thing
to shopping at your favorite boutique!
The whole idea is to get some friends together and arrange a swap of clothes and accessories you're sure you'll never wear again!

Try these tips from Real Simple Magazine!
1. Make it a true party:
Send invitations, and serve food and drinks.
2.Make it seasonal:
Hold your swap party at the start of a new season, when you switch your closets around.
3. Create a virtual-store atmosphere:
Set up full-length mirrors and changing areas.
4. Place items in categories:
Shoes in one area, accessories in another.
5. Make sure attendees bring only items that they're ready to part with:
Nothing is worse than falling in love with another woman's shirt, only to be told she's having second thoughts about giving it up.
Donate leftover clothing to charities such as Goodwill and the Salvation Army, or check with your churches, local hospitals, and women's shelters to see if they have clothing-donation programs.

I can't wait to try this party out!
I think I would serve Champagne and Cupcakes!
Maybe hang pink boas around!
Finally a shopping spree that's free!
Keep it simple and fun!!
