Michelle to guests: eat & come to party

Jan. 8: Michelle Obama has reportedly asked guests party to eat before they arrive at her 50th birthday, according to reports.

A save the date email reportedly advised guests to dine before attending the “Snacks & Sips & Dancing & Dessert” party.

According to the Chicago Tribune, sources said that guests have also been told to wear comfortable shoes and practice their dance moves.

The First Lady will celebrate her birthday on January 17 and will likely hold her party a day later.

She is currently enjoying an extended winter break in Hawaii while her husband and daughters returned to Washington.

As part of what the White House called part of a “birthday gift from the President” she is opting to continue her holiday with friends.

Last month Michelle Obama hinted about her birthday plans on a visit to a children’s hospital, saying it “might involve some dancing”.

She also said that there may be “A little Dougie” in reference to the hip-hop dance she performed on comedy show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last year.

The guest list for the party has yet to be revealed.

The Daily Caller reported that the First Lady is relaxing at the Oprah Winfrey estate in Maui for a “girl getaway” with CBS morning host Gayle King, President Obama’s adviser Valerie Jarrett and Sharon Malone, wife of attorney general Eric Holder.
