Party for Bridesmaid Gifts

Hi Ladies,
I'm good at wedding planning, but terrible with basic parties.  I'm hosting a Thirty One gifts party to help get free or cheaper extras for my bridesmaids.  I'm having a destination wedding and so I'd like to get them bags/luggage in addition to a necklace or earrings.  The consultant I'm working with is amazing.  She is even offering me 5% of the commission from the party to use toward purchases on top of the hostess gifts.  But I'm concerned.  I realize she will "run" the party.  But what do I need to do?  I've never even been to this type of party.  Should I be providing lots of food, or just appetizers and drinks?  Also for the record, I"m not inviting the bridemaids to the party.  I don't want them in anyway paying for their own gifts.

    I've been to a few Thirty-One parties. I love their merchandise. Anyway, she will run the party. It is a nice gesture to provide snacks and beverages for your guests.
