The last party that I went to was an Intimo party.
I was 13 weeks pregnant and not wanting to buy any lingerie or over priced pyjamas. The host knew that and told me to just come anyway, no expectations to buy anything.
She was fine, but the sales lady made me feel like the worst person in the world for not wanting to A. buy maternity bras so early in my pregnancy B. guess what size I would be post breastfeeding and buy bras accordingly and C. live in yoga pants throughout my pregnancy.
I'll go if I want to buy something, but I'm not getting suckered into going along for the social aspect again.

I hate party plan anything. Especially, especially, especially scrap booking/card making parties. A friend got very ****ty with me once because I did not want to spend my Friday night gluing and pasting with a bunch of strangers.

Not inconsiderate at all OP - I hate those parties as well. Even though they say "No pressure to buy" of course there is pressure!! I absolutely hate it when a friend gets into them. I don't go anymore. I find things over priced and I quite frank have better things to do than to sit in a room being expected to buy something so the host gets freebies or whatever.

I don't enjoy going to party plan events. When I catch up with friends I like to go for coffee, dinner or a movie. I usually decline an invitation to a party where things are being sold, I just don't find them enjoyable.
