But as the date approaches and before you get too into party mode, stop a minute. Remember why you are throwing a party in the first place, why you originally chose your theme, and then engage in it with zero agenda.
Watch the show. Read the book. Sit outside in the season. Listen to the music. Look at the pictures. Eat the food.
Recalibrate your brain right before your party to fall in love with your theme again. You'll enjoy your party so much more if you do.
