How to make your jewelry party or trunk show more fun?

A month ago I was invited by a lovely lady who sells incredibly beautiful jewelry to do henna at her jewelry party. The jewelry was breathtaking, apparently inspired by Jaipur, India. So henna totally made sense!

It was a total blast and such a well organized party. The ladies snacked and browsed around looking at, trying out and ordering their favorite pieces while some got henna done. It was such a calm and relaxing and fun ladies hang out.

Check out the amazing pics below! Loads of glitter and gems to match the exquisite bling around them.

Are you having a trunk show? What is your take on how to make it more fun and make it more successful? What do you think of this idea?
