As previously mentioned the team is throwing a launch party on Friday (insert OMG here). Being that we are a startup and that our site creates local deals with merchants, we’re a thrifty bunch! Why would you pay $50.00 for a vase at Pottery Barn when you can get the same vase, or its evil twin at Ross for only $15.00?
Eddie and I (Jen) headed out to buy some party staples this morning. We we’re hunting for the following items: flower vases, one neutral colored table cloth, classy ice buckets, serving platters, candles, plates and new art for our barren walls (it looks like a few twenty-something guys decorated HQ, in reality a few thirty-something guys decorated the place).
I have to say that I was incredibly impressed with our total bill! We bought all supplies listed for under $300.00! With catering, cupcakes, drinks, the wine sommelier and our Kindle Fire Giveaway we will still be under budget. Wahoo. We should get involved in city planning. Kumar for California Governor!
