"So...Let's Have A Party!" Party Fair, where guests will be able to find new ideas and resources for all kinds of parties, will be offered by local businesses and individuals, with displays open from 5:30 p.m. until 6:20 p.m.
Participants in the Party Fair to date are: Card$mart, Rita Pierson's Cocoa Bellissimo, Rhoadside Blooming House, Weeping Willow, and Christi Sayler's Home Card Designs, all of Cherokee, as well as Village Boutique of Aurelia, Mandie Richardson's Creative Cake & Cookie Creations of Larrabee, and Angela Johannsen's Cakes by AJ of Paullina. There will be 11 gifts given to guests in honor of the occasion from Party Fair participants and friends of Dynamic Women.
A light supper and dessert will be served at 6:30 p.m. The feature, "Decorating Your Party," will be presented by Molly Schroeder of Weeping Willow, sharing ideas if you would like someone to do-it-for-you, and Shirley Peters, offering several Martha Stewart ideas if you like to do-it-yourself. These women are also decorating all the guest tables for a wide variety of celebrations.
The speaker will be Jeanne Chapman from Clive, presenting "When You Care Enough to Send the Very Best." This former Hallmark shop manager uses cards to emphasize life lessons learned about worry, bitterness and anger as she raised a blended family.
"What a fun evening we have planned! Everything from the decorations to the dessert and even to the music will be a party you won't want to miss," said Shirley Peters, chair of the event.
