The Life

back to school backyard BOOK party!

Happy Friday!  This has seriously been a crazy week.  It is Joey’s last official week of summer before school starts back up on Tuesday.  And you know that means back to work for me so we have been doing all the things these past few days.  Yesterday my friend Stephanie and I hosted a back to school backyard BOOK party to kick off the upcoming school year!  It was a blast!! 

So you all know I love my little book business and being a book consultant for Usborne Books and More right?  I actually got involved by winning a mystery host party thrown by another consultant and got to choose over $300 in free books for my family.  We fell in love with all the books and I signed up to be a consultant to help all my friends build their home libraries as well.  And let’s be honest, I wanted more books too!  

So I had this great idea to throw a party with Stephanie being my party host.  The theme was obviously back to school and she invited all the neighborhood preschool kids.  I was able to help her spread the word by creating a super adorable invitation on paperless post in literally 10 minutes!  If you haven’t checked out their invites yet you are missing out!  It was so simple and we were able to send it via email to all of her party guests.  You are able to add all sorts of details and track RSVPS.   I brought my popcorn machine and sno cone maker and we made a ton of hot dogs!  Stephanie set out all other preschool favorites like applesauce pouches and goldfish.  It was seriously a 3 year old’s dream.  

Between story time, the bounce house, eating and book browsing I think it’s safe to say that everyone went home exhausted.  Especially the moms.  Best part is that Stephanie earned almost $200 in free books just for hosting!!  She is due with her second baby any week now and it’s safe to say that his bookshelves are going to be well stocked!

I hope that your summer went out with a bang!  We definitely have made the most of ours!

Feel free to shop online for some books here or ask me how you can host an easy online facebook party and earn free books to build your home library!  I’d love to chat books with you!

And don’t forget to check out  I am already browsing for “moms night out” invitations to have some friends over next month!

Happy Labor Day Weekend!
