Connection...Not Perfection

Fallen flan? Rock hard rolls? Grainy gravy? Holiday gatherings are just full of surprises. We've all been there! You may have checked off every item on your list and mapped out every detail weeks in advance but sometimes things just don't go the way you've planned them. Your "Two Gals Planning" are here to tell you...that's ok.

If you've hired a caterer or a professional planner, then perfection or something extremely close to it is to be expected. If, however, you are hosting your own get-together, we ask that you please, please don't worry about the small mistakes. Think about what is really important to you and your family and friends. Is it perfection? Probably not. We are guessing that it's about being together and enjoying each other. No one will remember if the turkey is a little dry or if your candles don't match. They will remember the laughter, the conversation and the little touches that make your gathering special.

Strive for a holiday filled with tradition, warmth and delicious family favorites. Don't succumb to the stress of trying to be perfect. Enlist helpers, relax and most of all...have fun! Happy Thanksgiving from Silver Lining Event Planning!

From our style to your smile,
Sandra and Stephanie
