From Teri K about the 2013 Henna Party: Thank you all for the wonderful party yesterday - it really turned a cold afternoon into a warm one!!! I loved the "hello" dance, and dancing with the big sparkly veil-dresses! The dance performances were beautiful, amazing, inspiring, and fun!! The veil fans were just as good as fireworks to me! The music was great; the colorful rugs were cool (I wish now I had taken pictures of that floor!); the henna was a hoot; and the food was FABULOUS too! Thank you all for your generosity. I know it's a lot of work to cut a big bowl of cherry tomatoes for salad (yum!). And wow - who put the butter in those 7-layer bars?! Delicious! Thank You! It was Fun Visiting with People Too!
