August 29, 2017

In home parties have become all the rage lately; both locally and nationally. Coming in all shapes and sizes, these parties offer a wide range of entertainment options and activities, all centered around the idea of a comfortable, relaxed setting, surrounded by friends and family. Be it make up, purses, wine and paint, a game night, as is the case with most of these parties, much of the entertainment is provided by the company selling their merchandise.
