An Evening to Remember

Well what an evening we had last night at my Jamie At Home Party.

I had invited lots of people because as they say in the Party Plan business invite double the amount of people you want to attend and tell them to bring a friend!

Well I didn't expect the turnout I got, 18 guests!!! There was not a space in the Living room left, I even had to bring the garden chairs in. Which was a good thing as the heavens opened just as the party started and we had a massive electrical storm pass over us. I had hoped the sun would still be shining so we could have an indoors outdoors party but we ended up indoors Ce la vie!

I had decided to make Pimms in my new jug which went down very well with everyone.

Alison my consultant was lovely and the party went really well. At the end of the night she told me I had earned £75 to spend on products from the Jme Collection, I was so so shocked I hadn't expected people to buy so much. As a host you earn 15% of your party total. You also earn Hostess points which earn you extra money to spend. I had two of my friends book a party which I will most definitely be attending, this earned me more hostess points which has given me another £50 to spend online. I knew exactly what I wanted to get, so I have spent the first £75 on the Antipasti Platter which is a version of what is used in the Jamie's Italian restaurants,
and more Blue topped kilner jars for my kitchen (as you can see in my Kitchen Make Over Post) I thoroughly enjoyed myself and so did my guests. I am looking forward to the next one at Juliette's and then Alison's and then I will have another one to do some Christmas Shopping!

So fellow bloggers if you fancy a fun night in with exclusive Jamie Oliver recipes, quiz's and lots of lovely home products book a party. If your in Sussex and want a party contact me and I will give you Alison's details.

Now I have to be patient and wait for the orders to arrive!

Have a fab weekend xxxxx
