Thank you Kelly for being a wonderful party host!
I recently had the pleasure of hosting a party for 3 Cords. It was absolutely amazing! 3 cords has a special place in my heart since my best friend Diana Cherry started the organization while living in Haiti. The first time I heard about 3 Cords I was instantly hooked! The products are adorable, durable and affordable but even better the organization provides jobs for amputee women. Diana and her husband lived in Haiti for 2 years, during that time I heard all about life in Haiti and of course the food. Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE to cook, so of course I was thrilled to take a stab at cooking authentic Haitian food for the 3 cords party. I went to the Dekalb farmers market in Decatur Georgia to shop for supplies. They had everything I needed and the total for all the ingredients was only $35.00! There was enough food for at least 20 people. The Diri Kole Ak Pwa was the biggest hit. It is a rice and beans dish made with coconut milk and lots of delicious spices. The Pik Liz, a spicy cabbage was yummy, very spicy though watch out! Salad Betrav is a beet salad with potatoes and carrots, a cool comparison to the spicy dishes. My husband loved the Sos Kreyol, a red based tomato sauce which actually came out spicy (due to me putting too many habenero peppers in it). He continued to put it on everything he ate to add a little zing. My friend Teddi assisted me in the Kitchen and made the Banan Peze, fried plantains! Anything fried of course goes right down and disappears immediately.
A couple weeks before the party I created an Evite with details for the event. I received the package in the mail from 3 Cords including all the cords, purses, clutches, ipad cases, notecards and flower pins. There was also very informative sheets including instructions on prices, order forms, and beautiful pictures and stories of the all the woman who make the products. It was easy to display all the products around my house. I encouraged guests to try on cords, pins, purses, etc. Many people bought extra products to give as gifts. As you can see from pictures everyone had a blast finding ways to wear different items.
The 3 Cords party was easy to organization and execute. Anyone who loves to throw a fun party for an amazing cause should definitely look into hosting a 3 Cords party!
