Volume 20: Inner Goddess Party
Last weekend was epic… Party planning is not for everyone, but I am one that thrives off it. I love deciding the theme, researching the decorations and food that I want, thrift store shopping and creating the idea that I have in my head to enhance the details of the theme.
This annual Inner Goddess Party was Halloween themed and I encouraged my ladies to dress up. Quite honestly, how often do we get to do that unless we have small children that love to dress up too? The best part is they were just as game as I was. SUPER SCORE! From the decorations, to the cleaning and then the food prep, I was just beyond thrilled to host the third annual Inner Goddess Party at my house. Why you may ask do I even take the time to host a party myself? What is it worth and who comes anyway?
You’re right, it is not your typical Ladies Night In where you contact your closest friends, grab some adult beverages and sit and giggle about the presentation while we gossip about our own adventures…well okay, maybe it is a little. My top reasons for hosting a party are outreach, gratitude and personal connection with my clients.
Firstly, I am a home-body and a social introvert; which means I LOVE my house and my me-time, but I can also hold my own in a crowd. It doesn’t mean I don’t like people, but I do have to get away to recharge and breathe. That is why we do well with independent projects, careers and planning, but I enjoy these parties more than most could ever understand. As a mother and daycare provider, I get very little alone time. Every waking minute is accounted for and filled and it is a constant struggle to juggling life, careers, kids and my handsome man. I understand the desire to want to go out, but the exhaustion that keeps you at home asleep on the couch. I understand the desire to want to talk to adult women, but the lack of mental strength to hold a conversation. To me, that’s why these parties are so important. By hosting a party once a year I am giving those who are more comfortable by themselves, tired, exhausted and unsocial, an opportunity to come see and participate without the pressure of putting on a big event themselves.
Secondly, I have moved A LOT in my life, 10 cities in 15 years to be exact. I moved 13 times in 5 years with my ex-husband and was a pro at the 30 second conversations. I lived mostly out of rubber made boxes, stored and lost more of my stuff than I ever intended, which made it very difficult to get out and meet new people every 4-6 months. The last ten years is the first time I have actually stayed in one place for an extended length of time and it literally took me starting a business to get out and meet people. Nowadays, the social scene is a little different because of the internet, yet with social media that it can be hard to interact with people face to face. We have hundreds of friends but only a few we can call in a hard time, we socialize, like and comment on peoples lives daily, but we don’t know their middle name or know what their worst fears are. You think I’m joking…but I’m not. This gives those who have a hard time connecting with others or those who think they “don’t have friends” an opportunity to attend a Full Bloom party without hosting their own, but also gives them a chance to meet people face to face, connect, learn and giggle.
Thirdly, I know what it’s like to get people together to come to one of your parties and if you’ve already hosted one for the year, it may be hard pressed for people to sync schedules again. This gives my experienced clients an opportunity to see the product again, order more for their own arsenals and see the new stuff that has just arrived.
Lastly, I host these parties to show my clients how utterly grateful I am for them. I not only feed them, but I offer a hostess gift to each Lady that came and giggled and give them a discount the night of the party. All of you are the reason I am in business and still thriving. All of you are the reason that I still love what I do. All of you are the why that pushes me forward.
There are so many reasons to host a Full Bloom Party, but the best one is why not? Do you really have to have a reason to get together with our friends? Does there have to be a big occasion to laugh, learn and shop? Absolutely not, all you need is the time. With that being said, the ladies and I had a great time. Every year it grows with people, product and fun and every year I have different products to show. Next fall will be no different and I hope to have doubled the amount of women to share this time with. Every single one of them I can honestly say I adore. Trust me, I know it can be a big deal to come to an intimate romance party of any kind. You have to be confident, curious and open to hearing those ‘sacred words’ like vagina, penis, clitoris, sex and to sit in a room with other women you may or may not know can be kind of intimidating. You may have more experience or less, have a significant other or be sexy and single. No matter your fear or reason for going, you will have a blast and be more confident when you leave.
As always, I love who I am, I love what I do, and I love the products I get to share with all of you. I am Gracie, the creator and CEO of Full Bloom Parties and until next time, be cool, stay safe and practice your own KINK and Sexy.
I hope you enjoy, like, comment, and keep in touch with all the up-coming blogs. Ladies, if you’d like to be interviewed for your own KINK and Sexy article, be sure to message me either through social media or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll set up an interview!
