Oooh, I would totally come to your party, if I lived anywhere near you.

(See how I just invited myself, even though I was not on the list? I have no shame.)

Sounds like fun. I've never actually thrown a party, but I know that fear too.


I'm always terrified no one will come to my parties too! I pace so much waiting for people to arrive that I feel like I'm wearing down my carpet :)

Want to plan my wedding? You can start by picking a date and venue. Kthxbai.

I am terrified that no one will come to my parties, too.

Hmm, I'm usually just the opposite. No shame in throwing the party and inviting tons of people, but folks tend not to show up or stay very long. I've never cared, though, because I'VE always had a good time!

Seriously, New Year's last year? D and I hosted a party at his house since we couldn't do London or Edinburgh with the Munchkin. Two other couples came over (well, maybe three), we (read: I) got completely hammered on red wine and champagne, and had a BLAST. Even when people left at 12:30am to go home. My point here is that no matter who comes, you'll always have a good time because you're there with people you like and who like you. And we all know it's more about quality than quantity.

I do understand, though--everyone likes to be appreciated. And I'd certainly show up!


I worry about attendance as well, especially now that I'm getting older and friends are getting busier. I guess it just comes with the territory.

Anyhoo, I would come to Can Can, it looks like fun! :)

Do you remember our "Murder on the Orient Express" party? The key to making a dinner murder party work is having somebody serve and clean up while you have fun. You can't play and host/serve.


I can't remember the last time I threw a party, though I guess the wedding counts a little bit. Good luck with whatever you choose, I'm sure it will be a blast!


I suffer from the same irrational fear -- although I guess it's not that irrational in my case because I remember years ago when I had just moved to a new place, it was my birthday, and no one showed up to my party... that was depressing.


Wasn't that Brittany's birthday party that was the murder mystery? That was SO much fun, getting to dress up and all, and a great way to have a party for not a ton and a half of people!


Wow- Casey's birthday is Monday, and Jess' birthday is the following week. It must have been a very hot summer (oh wait, they're all different years...)

Hot bunch of summers then.

I'm keeping this party planner stuff in the frontal lobe of my brain. I might just have you help me plan that 30's themed party I want to have.


I love planning things too. I'm at a point where everyone is married and they've all had their babies so there's not been much to plan lately. It is always scary to think of no one showing up....and eating all the food! :)


I'm a planner too! Tell Colby Happy Birthday, and I'm sure that no matter who is there, it will be an all out BLAST!


I always have that fear of planning something and no one shows up or they have a bad time, too. I don't know what it is. Then I remember that no one else hardly plans anything, so they're usually just happy to have something to do and someone to plan it for them:) I hope you had a nice time!
