I was outside having dinner when I realized Aqualabel results were out.
But, phew phew phew, I was in!
Delighted to the max!
Immediately after the dinner, I drafted my party plan!
That’s a very simple draft!
After I was onfirmed my party date and time, I created an Event Invitation at my facebook page!
During the RSVP process, I had to mass emailed to my shortlist attendees,
gave them a rough idea on what’s going to happen at the party,
party theme, dresscode.
And inorder to ensure that they had received my email, I requested them
to send me an acknowledgement reply.
Here’s my full details on my preparation for the party!
I got to choose either the Whitening Line or Moisturizing Line from Aqualabel.
Chose Whitening Line, the one which I was familiar with!
Having a checklist sure made my planning easier than without it!
I was so excited that I even planned for the furniture arrangement!
The reason was because I planned to divide my guests into groups,
so I was like trying to make my guests seated conveniently near to one another before the start of the party.
In the midst of planning, I had also sent out party details as reminder to my guests,
and asked for acknowledgment email from each of them to ensure everyone had the party details like,
theme colour, venue, date, time and my contact number (incase they lost their way).
Once I was sure about when I wanted in my party,
the first and most important thing I need to prepare was my presentation slides!
I had to read up the information and ensure what I typed was accurate!
Here’s an overall screen shot of my whole presentation slides.
All slides were all prepared by myself!
I didn’t just prepare slides and that’s it..
As I went along typing out, doing the slides,
I also typed some notes below each slide to remind myself the important points which
I needed to share with my guests.
I had to ensure that my notes were accurate too!
I spent the one day going through my slides,
planning how I should demonstrate the Aqualabel products to my guests~
Of course during the actual day, I wouldn’t be reading directly from the notes!
Another reason was that I needed to ensure the presentation flow would be smooth and within my scheduled timing.
I actually added a GIF photo of myself into my first slide.
This GIF photo was meant to be inserted into the video challenge back in the previous stage in this challenge. But due to time limitation, I had to exclude the GIF photo.
So inorder not to waste this "idea",
I thought it’s rather interesting to add this GIF photo into my first slide to be shown on the screen while waiting for guests to arrive.
Unable to upload the GIF photo here, but here are 2 screen shots showing the "photo motion".
the two "motions" would just alternate in one slide!
Below slide shows my program for that evening,
I basically gave my guests a thorough introduction to the Full Whitening Range of Aqualabel.
What I’d planned was, as I went through each product, my guests would get to try the individual products on the spot, to let them have a feel of the products texture and results.
It was a step by step flow to ensure they had tried out the whole skincare regime
using Aqualabel Products correctly.
One of the products was the Reset White Mask and I included a video in one of the slides
to share with my guests the massage tip after masking.
After preparing the presentation slides,
next was a mini competition!
To make my party fun, I had specially prepared a mini competition for my guests.
A complete party should have games and prizes right!
To make my party more exciting, prizes were a must!
All prizes were fully sponsored by my own pocket and definitely belong to the Brand, Shiseido.
Prizes were mainly for the Winners who completed the puzzle at the fastest time and the "Best-Dressed Babe" at the party.
Following the competition slide, was the Thanks You slide!
I came up with a "Thank You" slide in a few languages, with the help of Google!
After finishing with my presentation slides,
I was like more than 50% done,
it was time for me to start with my party theme decorations!
Few days before my party, I went for a manicure, specially to paint blue!
Did some shopping!
Shopping for my party decor, DIY guestbook, gifts, memo and DIY party theme!
See what I’ve DIY-ed!
Inorder to let my guests felt my sincere in meeting them and
welcoming them to my party, I prepared a written message for each one of them.
And a rose attach to my "letter" to each guest!
A guestbook for my guests to write me something while waiting for the rest to arrive.
What I did was, I DIY-ed an individual card for them to write me a message ending with their names.
I’ve also prepared some decorating materials likes cute tapes and stickers for them to decor the guestbook!At least there’s something memorable for me to keep!
At the sametime to keep my guests occupied while waiting for the rest to arrive.
Check out what my guests had wrote for my in my guestbook!
In random order ya!
I really love all the cards, so pretty!
A few used to rose which I’d given them to decorate the guestbook!
Gonna bind all the card to looklike a guestbook for the party! What’s a party without a theme?
I came up with a theme – "Something Blue"
Suggested to my guests to wear anything that’s in Blue to my party,
and most did!
DIY-ed my theme banner with some flowers…
With my DIY guestbook, decor, banner, game puzzle and prizes,
I was almost ready!
Packing all the things neatly into a box, convenient to bring to the party!
What Happened At The Party
Party was held at Shiseido office, in one their workshop room.
The moment I arrived, the first thing I did was to paste my banner on the workshop room’s door!
Super proud of my "artwork piece" !
I then unpacked my stuff from my box, getting myself ready before the arrival of my guests.
I placed my DIY-ed guestbook cards onto each seat, placed the decorating stickers, tapes,
scissors, coloured pens on the tables for them to use while waiting.
At the sametime,
Stella helped to prepare the food and
Claire helped me to usher the guests into the workshop room.
Doorgifts for all my guests!
Sponsored by Aqualabel!
Party was held at Shiseido office, in one their workshop rooms.
Feeling "Egg-cited" and nervous ya!
One by one my guests started to arrive.
I was supposed to give each of them an entry chop but the "plan" didn’t work
because before I could stamp the "smiley face" on their hand, they had already entered the room!
Most came on time!
Really appreciate their effort!
The moment they entered the room,
we introduced ourselves to one another, haha, so shy!
Most of them were my faithful blog readers and it was our "first date"!
I then let them choose a rose which I had prepared for everyone.
Then asked them to paste their "Name Tag" onto their tops or arms.
This was to let them know everyone’s names, familarised with one another,
before indulging the competition which required them to form a team!
I also passed them my special memo to each of them!
Let’s get the party started!
The party started!
Me, walking near my guests, demonstrating the correct method to place the
Reset White Mask on the face.
The S-shaped cut!
After bringing my guests through the journey of "Something Blue",
it’s competition time!
Puzzle Making Time!
The moment I told them, "the fastest group to complete the puzzle wins",
my guests became "fast and furious" clearing the table to "make way" for the puzzle!
Seemed to me my readers got along with one another pretty fast!
The active team!
The attentive team!
The BFF team!
The hard-at-work team!
They sure looked happy!
Some "work done" in all the teams!
Due to some hiccups, there was a change in the number of guests per group.
And it so happened that my winning group consists of 4 lovely babes.
Initially what I’d planned was 3 babes in a team, hence only 3 prizes were prepared for the puzzle winning team.
I should have brought extra prizes! sigh!
Anyway, my guests were very accommodating and agreed to have the 4th prize which was
meant for the "Best-Dressed" babe to be given to the puzzle winning team,
while I’d give the "Best-Dressed" babe another prize on another time.
my 4 prizes to the 4 of them!
Here’s the winning team!
Another photo, extracted from Zaleha’s facebook!
As for the Best-Dressed prize, I hereby announced this award goes to
She was wearing a blue dress with cute polka dots printed on.
Here’s the prize which I’ve prepared for the "Best-Dressed" babe!
I hereby also will like to express my appreciation to all the other guests who were also very spontaneous in wearing blue to my party!
THANK YOU LOTS LOTS!
