We love hosting a party where we end up as relaxed as our guests. As with any party, most of the organization happens up front, but when there are great clothes and swapping involved, we can get as wrapped up in the moment as everyone else!
In case you hadn’t noticed, we love to go all out in creating a deliberate atmosphere for Little Yellow Couch events. For the clothing swap, we wanted it to feel like our friends had stepped into an exclusive boutique. The kind where you need an appointment to shop and you could expect to be handed a glass of wine and a bite of chocolate upon arrival.
Our lovely friend Laura offered her home as the site for our "boutique." We had a great time trying on each other's clothing and an even better time seeing our own clothes working so well on someone new.
Not everyone knew each other when they got there but they certainly did by the time they left! Nothing like modeling clothes in front of strangers to get women to bond and find common ground. Oh, and trying on belts that we thought were necklaces and necklaces that were meant to be headbands is also amusing.
Seeing your cast-offs look stunningly fresh on a new friend is truly rewarding! We highly recommend it.
xoxo, Karen June & Zandra
