swap til’ you drop

In our 2nd issue of GOOD NEWSLETTER we feature the Pink Hanger Sale Party giving you ideas on how to host a Swapping party to raise money for charity. Well, here is a Real Good Life party doing exactly that, from the amazing Christi Bennett who has her own blog! Go check it out for incredible party inspiration!

Here are the party details as described by Christi herself and lots of photos to follow:

“A few weeks ago, I hosted a clothing swap at my house and a great time was had by all. Friends were invited to mix and mingle and enjoy a cocktail or two while they "shopped" for items donated by friends with similar styles. Not only was it an excuse for good friends to get together, but it was an opportunity to lend a hand to The Salvation Army. Leftover clothing was donated to the annual style show luncheon put on by the organization. There are many pictures to share, so get ready...


The ottomans served as inspiration for the invitations and all of the paper goods to follow.

The play area for the kids was transformed into a boutique style atmosphere.

As guests entered the house, they grabbed a card from the tree. Inside was a number which let them know when it was their turn to swap.

Yummy spiked pink lemonade was the drink of the afternoon.

The girls grabbed guilt-free meringues as they left the party.

With the current economy… this was a small, but wonderful opportunity for a group of girls to update their wardrobe without spending a penny!”
