Not only am I freaked out about the normal things --- "Do I have enough inventory?", and "Where are my business cards hiding?", and "Don't forget to pack your socks this time!", I'm freaked out about a far larger issue this go around.
I'm changing up my display.
In the past, I've used these lovely floral boxes, romantic silk hydrangeas, and lots of greenery. Like this.
However, now that I've changed my logo to this:
I'm changing things up.
I've gotten rid of the flowered boxes in lieu of solid white and hot pink. I have funky pink, purple, and white gerbera daisies to tuck into the dead spots on the tables. I have some Chinese lanterns to hang from a ceiling that we normally don't even put up, as well a chain of mini-Chinese lanterns to hang instead of a floral/greenery arbor over the top of the earring display.
But none of this has been through a trial run yet.
Add to this our having to tote along our eight-year old boy, my husband's and my need to get things just-so the first time, and we have a recipe for a Scotch-and-soda kind of dinner Thursday night.
Or, perhaps, pie.

One, wish me and Rick good luck on Thursday as we struggle with translating vision-in-Lori's-brain into works-in-real-life.
Two, come visit me if you're in the Northern VA/DC Metro area to see how it turned out.
And three, I'll have pictures next week, regardless of the outcome, be it hilarious or hellacious.
