Let me set the scene for you a little bit: It was around lunch time yesterday when I decided to check my personal email. I wasn’t expecting anything of great interest when I saw it, a message with the subject “Congratulations and Invitation.” What, and invitation for me? My interest was immediately peaked. It’s not every day that this boring twenty-something gets invited to a cocktail reception in the city (in fact, it’s not unusual for my only emails to be from Gap and Nordstrom).
It’s easy enough to create–a whole lot of mashed potatoes, martini glasses, and some assorted toppings (such as bacon, cheddar cheese, scallions, or sour cream) and you’re good to go. You provide the potatoes and the fixings, and your guests do the rest! Seriously, how easy is this to do at your own party? For a twenty-something on a budget this idea is easy, affordable, and memorable!
