The TSW Guide to Prepping for A Party

As you know it’s been busy times for Third Space Wellness. With our new location open we’ve been managing tons of logistics on a daily go. Our plates are full with fun, laughter, learning and tasks. We decided long ago that when we opened our doors we wanted to host some great events for our community. So some of the items on the “get it done” lists are around party planning and community engagement. Thus today we bring you a photo blog about how we are prepping for a few of them and specifically an upcoming Happy Hour, which you are invited to:

Tuesday, April 28 from 7 – 9 p.m. at our new spot.

So with the photos we took, we thought we could share our approach to event and party prep with you and some of the things that had us laughing at ourselves. Maybe next time you will take some photos of your busy logistics and bloopers and share them with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; we love tips and follies that benefit all!

While we completely forgot to take fun photos at Party City this morning where we were excited to buy huge plastic bowls for potato chips and we giddily tried on $5 sun glasses  – which by the way fit super well and come in amazing colors – we did not forget the importance of CAKE! Here we are at Costco. Since I (Rachel) am the cake lover, I was too overwhelmed with glee to contain myself and we had to take a photo of Joy who was much more behaved. Her love of cake isn’t as big as mine, so instead she makes an “if Dr. Evil and an excited cake lover had a baby” face.

Then we ordered ours. We had to tear up the first order, why? Because as Joy put it “I can’t always read your handwriting.” She softened it with a nice compliment though! Honesty is important in a business partner. I wasn’t offended, don’t worry. She really does have better handwriting.

Clearly we got crazy hungry after all that cake shopping. $2.74 is the best deal in town for a slice and a non-alcoholic bevy. This is a great example of how even wellness professionals love junk food. It’s an 80/20% thing.

Given the importance we give to looking good, we did need to stop for some shoes. (Oh and there’s our chip bowls!)

And then it was on to Costco #2, seriously! We needed to get some vino and beer to help us host… can’t swing that at a Maryland Costco. Onward to DC! Don’t mind the fuzzy, we were in motion.

Then we got lost trying to leave the mini neighborhood being built next to Costco. Lost in Northeast! It was a nice drive through a cute neighborhood though. This is the construction zone.

Finally, home sweet home. Mama Dublin sent an awesome gift (did you know you could get a Bonsai shipped to you? We didn’t either!!). If you want to see it out of the box, I guess you will have to come visit.

In the midst of the chaos of opening the doors…and when I say “chaos” I actually mean:

  • awesome
  • super fun
  • exhausting
  • #learning experiences
  • so busy my head is spinning
  • OMG I am tired, and
  • yay!

…we still made time to turn the mundanity of event shopping into a blast. The thing is, when life gets this full it’s really important to find a way to breathe through the busy, to laugh in the middle of the fatigue and to pause and unwind even when the clock is ticking – loudly and madly. We know our plates our full…but damn, it is so worth it.
