UGH. You know the invitation. Where you think it's a real party invite but - PSYCH! - it's BuyCrap party.
Pampered Chef. Southern Living. Discovery Toys. PartyLite Candles. Cabi clothing. Longaberger Freakin' Baskets. My Step Sister-in-Law's Beaded Jewelry.
What you think your invitees are saying when they open the invite: "Ooooh!"
What your invitees are actually saying: "F*ck!"

And I don't need a $69 wrought iron anything. Everyone knows you can get anything you want in wrought iron at TJ Maxx for $11.00 Wrought iron mirror? Yes. Umbrella stand? Yes. Underwear? Sure: $11.00.
"But there's wine!" Yes, I know there's wine. And dip. And cheese, don't forget the cheese. But here's the thing:
Wine & cheese at MY house: $0.
Comfy couch & a new episode of The Office: $0
Not being the proud owner of a wrought-iron grape peeler: Priceless.
