I'm throwing a joint birthday party for Josh (whose birthday is next Tuesday) and my Mama (whose birthday is today!) on Saturday and I'm in full-on prep mode. That means my obsessively ordered self currently has about five lists (and lists for those lists) of things to do / buy / cook and otherwise get ready for our celebrations!
Actually, I'm feeling pretty good and organized. Today I made a drawing of appetizer placements for the dining room table. Yes - I am insane.
Anyway, I've gotten the worst of the shopping done already: the booze! As fun as I had at Binny's purchasing the wine, beer & spirits for our soiree, I did not have as much fun making 15 trips to and from the car to get them into the house. Nonetheless, the job is done, and since I'm hiring a bartender for the big day, my work in this area is pretty much complete.
A glimpse at the stock:
2 cases of beer (Corona Light, Negra Modelo, and Victoria)
3 cases of wine (4 varietals)
A portion of the bar area
I've also knocked out other miscellaneous party supplies, including a new cooler, plates & cutlery, about 40 new wine glasses, and some seriously festive cupcake wrappers. We're totally looking to out-do that royal wedding!
Next up: the food!
