My Open House!

On October 16, 2011 I decided to take a big leap and become an Independent Consultant for Scentsy.  Now for me, that is a big leap, because I’m not the type of person to put myself out there for everyone.  I’m pretty quiet and no where near outgoing enough to do some of the things that other people do in their own business.  But I did it, and so far I am really enjoying it.

On November 15, 2011, I held a Scentsy Open House.  Put some flyers out, and started putting my name out there.  I had my doors open for 4 hours that night, and had people stop by to check out products and do a bit of shopping.  I didn’t have a lot of people come, but I was absolutely all right with that, because after all, this was just to start getting my name out, and I was happy with how everything went.

Monday, Kazia and I baked some cupcakes and she helped me start getting some things printed and organized for the next day.  That night, after Kazia had gone off to dream land, I decorated all but four of the cupcakes and baked some French style Macaroons.

I left four undecorated cupcakes for Kazia to decorate the next morning.

I think I was making her breakfast when Kazia came over to tell me that she finished decorating the cupcakes for me, so I went over to her little table to check it out, and this is what she came up with 🙂  Nice and neat, don’t you think?

After having breakfast, I finally decided to take out my Scentsy Buddy from it’s little box, the poor thing had been in there for a couple weeks since I knew that as soon as I opened that box, Kazia would claim the buddy for herself.  And I was right!

Watching her morning cartoons with Ollie the Elephant!

And smelling the lovely “Newborn Nursery” scent pak inside ….

And here are all the photos that show my set up for the night.

And all the baked goodies … yummy!

This was my first time ever working with meringue so I ended having to make two batches of the macaroons.  The first ones I tried were Lemon and Lime, but not sure where I went wrong, they were hard to pipe because the batter was so runny, and they didn’t get the little foot rise when baking, but they had what I think is the right texture; light crispy outside and soft inside.  The second batch I made were chocolate, and again, not sure what went wrong, but the batter was thicker so they were easier to pipe, and they got the little foot rise, but they were hard and crispy inside and out, which I don’t think is supposed to happen.  Well, they both tasted good, so all in all it worked out either way.

Here’s the difference between the Chocolate, and the Lemon and Lime.

I had a blast baking, setting everything up and doing the Open House.  I would definitely do it again.

And thank you to everyone that did stop by, I hope you all enjoyed it!  I really do appreciate you coming by.

See you all soon.
