I had a great time hosting my first EG trunk show! It was almost as much fun preparing for the show as it was to actually have all the girls over to try on the cute clothes.
Seven of my girl friends who live in my dorm came over on the night before the show, to help set up and to get a sneak peak at the great new EG items. Not only did we have a lot of fun, and create a great set up for the show, it also really helped to mentally prepare me for the next day. When the girls came over, we went to the grocery store to pick up snacks, came back and made cookies, and had a few tastings along the way. They gave me their input on how to make the best lay out of the room so that the center of attention would be on the fantastic clothes! But the best part of the night was when all the girls tried on the clothes. It was great to see which colors looked the best on brunettes, blondes, tan, fair skinned, etc. The coloring, along with seeing which styles worked for certain body types, really prepared me to give advice to the trunk show guests the next day. But most importantly, the night’s activities gave me a huge confidence boost for my trunk show! Of course as a design consultant, I know that EG has amazing styles, but it’s always great to hear other girls point out their favorite qualities in the pieces. My friends gave me even more material to use in promoting EG pieces the following day. I recommend that all design consultants have their friends over to get them psyched up on the night before a trunk show! And I also suggest trying these delicious chocolate pretzel treats! They’re easy and quick!
Just lay out as many pretzels as will fit on a cookie sheet and place a Hershey kiss on each one. Set the oven to 350, and pop the tray in for about 2 minutes, or until the tips of the kisses start to droop (white chocolate Hugs melt a lot faster- so keep an eye on those!). Then take them out and put an m and m on each pretzel right away. You can leave them to cool for a few hours on the counter, or if you’re in a rush you can stick them in the fridge.
