Project Runway Party!
Project Runway is back this summer with Season 9 and that makes me feel like having a party! The show kicked off July 28th with a bang and a new twist for the designers: Some went home... before the first challenge!
"We started off this season with 20 designers who soon learned that their place on the show is not as secure as they thought it was and that they still need to audition." - Project Runway Blog
Summer is all about fun and what's more fun than fashion, so grab your girlfriends and PR lovers and get together on a Thursday night to celebrate with Tim, Heidi and already controversial Anya, a former Miss Universe contestant with only 4 months of sewing experience (what?). Oh it's going to be good, the designers are not only cutting up fabric they are cutting up each other! This bunch seems talented and totally entertaining. You can stay in touch and catch up on missed episodes at the Official Project Runway page and chat on twitter @ProjectRunway .
If you are like me and want to party PR Style, here are some simple party suggestions!
1 FLOWERS: Decorate the viewing space with bright pink Gerbera Daisies - very summer! Use several small vases of varying heights - one flower to a vase is perfect.
2 FOLLOW Gunn's Golden Rules: Life's Little Lessons for Making It Work. You can buy Tim Gun's book at amazon.com - it has tips for all of life's moments - even parties! Display the book in your viewing area with the flowers for some PR decor and a taste of Tim Gunn (who I adore).
3,5,6 TREATS: Try a 'Chocolate and Raspberry' dessert pairing for stylish and delicious treats (plus the berries are in season and at their best). Chocolate macaroons, Chocolate Cupcakes with vanila icing and fresh raspberries and chocolate cups with white cream and raspberry (images from Plan To Party available at Amazon.com)
4 PARTY FAVORS: Give guests a travel sewing kit as a favor for the night. I love the ones pictured above - details here>
