30 days of Ostara; Day 15
Timetable for a perfect Ostara
Plan. Think about what kind of party you want. Write lists.
Talk with your friends and arrange who will come and help you with cleaning and doing the heavy shopping.
Order what needs to be ordered; flowers, meat, hairdresser
Get yourself a party outfit. (See that the whole family has something to wear. There's still time to order what is missing. Don't forget proper underwear, like underskirts if you plan wearing a skirt aso.)
See that there is enough film (ha! everyone has a digital camera now-a-days!) and batteries for the cameras.
Get a photo album /scrapbook and plan how to document your Ostara.
Write your Ostara card list and check all the addresses.
Get most of the things you are going to need for the party, that can wait, like beverages, candy, candles aso.
Clean your home properly, with your friends, and decorate it.
Don't forget to clean the spirit of your home too!
Crafting day - with kids or friends
Make cards and decorations, if you're into that.
Make presents, if you are not. (Or just wrap presents.)
Just be together, if you are not crafty people. Enjoy eggnog and cookies.
Make candy, if you are into that sort of thing
Prepare foods that need a couple of days to be at their best, like freshly salted salmon.
Have a party rehearsal and take notes. You still have a couple of days to see you have everything you need.
Put last minute touches on the house, get the flowers
Fetch the things you ordered.
In the evening, do something that is not associated with Ostara in any way. Watch a Christmas movie, (because it has nothing to do with Ostara), take a looooooong bath, eat pop corn.
Send the kids to the movies or to have a pajamas party with their friends.
Make all food that can be made day before and prepare for the rest.
