Hack 101: A Limited Effort, High Reward Birthday Party

Personal

May 28, 2018

This year, I made a vow to myself that I was going to chill on party planning. I am the kind of girl who follows the classic mantra: go hard or go home. On Friday, I turned 23 and I have to say that I am quite proud of my party planning. I knew that I wanted something that didn’t require a whole lot of effort on my part, especially with my demanding weekly schedule. For quite some time I have been thinking about going to an art class, specifically ceramics. I got on Yelp and found the perfect place: Potter’s Wheel!
It is a BYOB (& food) pottery store that also has it’s own gift shop with cute boutique finds. It’s thirty minutes from Houston heading towards Tomball, Texas. Honestly, it is worth the drive! It was $30 per person and from 7-9 pm, we practically had the studio to ourselves with our wonderful instructor, Charity, and her fellow staff members. They taught us how to use the wheel and make our own plates. We followed the lesson with time to decorate our plate. We cut the cake, ate some appetizers, and once it was time for them to close up shop, we walked over to the restaurants in Vintage Park for some dinner. At the end of the day, you walk away with no cleanup or hassle. You can for once in your life, just embrace your birthday and not worry about being a good host!
Overall, it was an incredible experience and I can’t wait to see how our plates turned out! The whole process was absolutely seamless and super affordable.
A huge thank you to everyone who made it! It truly was a birthday I will never forget.
