I am SO not a Party Thrower Person

Here's the process I go through when throwing a party:

*think of great, fun exciting idea EVERYBODY will love
*get together details
*start inviting people
*find out main fun, exciting people can't come
*freak out because there's not enough people going to be there
*invite more people
*don't hear back if they can come or not
*invite more people
*find out ALL the extra people I invited CAN come
*freak out because now I have TOO many people coming
*spend the rest of the time until the party beating myself up for inviting too many people, thinking the party is going to be a zoo instead of small and special and I'm going to have to spend too much money for it all any way
*get to the party day
*have a blast

On the flip side, the one time I DIDN'T go through the process of inviting more people there really weren't enough people (Valentine's Day party) and there was a fall out involving one slightly grumpy person, and one slightly not in the groove couple (they had nobody to connect with) because we had a little too much intimate time to concentrate on together : D .

Yeah, I know. I freak out too much about parties. So in throwing Justinbustin's super duper awesome bday party, right now I'm at the find out all the extra people I invited can come and am trying to avoid the freaking out stage but not really succeeding.

I would be the same way. You must be an "includer" like me. I'm always worried that not everyone will have fun or feel included - I think my fear of this is what keeps me from planning many get-togethers.

Hahahahahahaha, that is HILARIOUS! And so true! I'm having Scott a big graduation bash next month, and I'm super nervous melding his group of friend's and mine, and then I feel so stressed out trying to make sure I get to mingle with EVERYONE at the party!
