tranquility du jour tv: tranquilista book launch prep
getting excited about thursday night's fete and spent the evening tying bows and stuffing goody bags with the lovely brie. here's a video showing us at work, along with photos.
i heart small touches. goody bag contents:
-vanilla tea lights in colorful organza bags
-vellum cards (with sayings such as "let your life sparkle," "make a difference," "sip chamomile tea," "accessorize: your life is art" and a pink chandelier in the background) wrapped around fragrant incense AND the outside of the goody bags with a pink organza bow
-rose tea by tulsi with a personalized wrapper
-damask armwarmers locally sewn from reused fabric
-colored pencils tied with a bow.
the 50 goody bags (for first 50 arrivers) took us three hours to package and it was such fun. i could tie bows all day long.
note louis in his new pink snuggie for dogs (i know, i know) overseeing it all from my beloved chaise lounge. hope you enjoy this peek into the behind the scenes prep for thursday's fete (and that it gives you some ideas for crafting fun packages for friends). if we get wifi, we'll be ustreaming the event so that you can join us from afar at your computer.
finally, here's a sneak peek into tomorrow's piece in the washington post express.
