Burger & Party Planner ...

-----

I went to Burger Hub for the first time
It is a nice place and the food is so good
I went with my cousin at around 6 pm
It was empty and quite
They have a VERY long menu, lots of dishes,
You don’t know what to choose
The baby burgers are yummy just like the mini burgers
in Burger boutique
I loved this place and definitely eating there again :)
-----
I always wanted to be a party planner or party coordinator
Whatever they call it
I love preparing parties, shopping for things to decorate,
picking the food, flowers etc.
I enjoy it and I trust my taste :p
My friends take me with them when they shop for gowns
I like it when they take my advice on what shoes to wear
And what hairdo to make and what color of jewelry,
I even like it more when they borrow my stuff
I love making people look pretty
-----
My brothers and cousins always ask me on what gifts
to buy for their wives
I concentrate on how to deliver the gift and on a surprise
more than the gift itself
Coz the place, the way the wife gets her gift,
the unexpected things, the words she read
are all things she would never forget,
She might lost the gift or forget it with time, but the sweet memories
and romantic moments will never go away :)
-----
My brother even told me once 'afkarech 3ajeeba!
fet7ay ma7al tantheem 7aflat o monasabat o afkar 7ag elmofaja'at etc.'
He was serious! It made me smile coz
that is a wish I have long time ago
Anyways, this weekend we had this party it’s a reception
My mom made for our new bride (my sis in law)
My bro asked me to do it and I had to prepare everything
A big party in a hotel all done by me! Wow wanasa
It is like a dream come true :p
I had a less than a month to buy and prepare everything
The bride chose the color purple, I said okay
-----
If it was for me I would choose red and white
so romantic
Red roses, red glasses on white tables and chairs,
white tulips and red details on her sofa etc.
I imagined it in my mind
Well I had to go with purple coz she liked it,
and we are making the party for her
I decided on purple and off white (or creamy),
She asked me to add pink too but I said no, no way
2 colors are enough I don’t like mixing so many colors,
It won’t look elegant plus it’s not a birthday party!
She was thinking between purple and pink
I suggested purple coz in all parties I go I find pink
Pink roses, everything pink, pink, pink!
-----
I picked the cards, simple ones, I wanted something
nicer but there was no time we had 2 print them and
start delivering them
Then I picked the flowers white and purple tulips
(My favorite flower)
plus one more kind of off white and purple flowers,
one centre piece for each table and 2 big ones for her sofa
Then I had to find the perfect sofa to rent,
and I bought 2 big throws to decorate it
My sis suggested mini cupcakes instead of the chocolate,
so we made a special order, purple cupcakes! Vanilla flavor very yummy
Dad got purple candles, candle plates and napkins
My bro ordered a perfume with their names in an elegant purple
boxes as gifts for the guests
I chose the DJ and agreed on everything with him
The photographers, plates, food, everything
It was a very busy week and I got tired but I enjoyed it!
and it was the first experience for a big party
I learned a lot of things
They wanted it to be simple coz it is not a wedding
and I like simplicity coz whenever you add extra stuff
and over decorate it wont look good :/
-----
TF made it to the party although she was very busy
and had to come late
But she came and we had SO much fun ;)
I think she and I were the prettiest and most elegant
girls in the party LOL ebkefee :p
Thanks Daiseya u really made me happy, I hope u had fun :)
-----
At 12:00 midnight our friend (H) turned 26
We sang for her and I took the candle on the table and told her to blow it
Then we started acting crazy and everyone was looking at us
heh :)
When the three of us are together that always happens :p
-----
Little Big couldn’t make it :(
7asafa 6afech estanasna wayed o kan wedee etkoneen ma3annna!
-----
New Bride was there too, she even posted something
about it in her last post,
As I told u, u looked very nice in black ;)
-----
I am still getting msgs from the girls (cousins & friends)
telling me everything was nice and that they had fun
Am so glad, el7emdella
I really wanted things to look nicer and I had many ideas
But there was not enough time for the preparations
So am glad of the good reactions
O aham shay my sis in law and my bro are so happy
of what I did :)
I love them and am proud that they trust me
and asked me to do everything, ma3a enhom yanenonee
with their unstop calls, my bro from Jeddah and she from here,
edegoon o yashbekoon elkha6 o garga 3ala rasee
all day and night asking for the details etc.
Lama akher ayam gomt a7awel my phone voice message
o gamaw edezoon sms, around 5 msgs every minute!
athonee LOL

If you know them well (close friends or family), you better ask them for what they need,
something they didn’t buy yet for the new home, TV for example.
If you can’t ask or don’t want to, I suggest a lampshade (something like this http://uniserf.com/store/images/35647.jpg)
for the living room or guests room.
You can also get something for the kitchen (coffee maker, toaster, tea set, etc.)
Don’t forget to nicely rap them and add a congratulation card :)
Let me know if you want something not for the house!
