Okay, Pictures are up. They're in a new photo file on the right. Check it out. The party was such a success. I think everyone had fun, the decorations were awesome, the food was great, the script was hilarious and the company was the best. We really do have the greatest friends ever. At the last minute we had a couple cancel on us and while we totally missed them, we were able to just switch up a few people and the transition was seamless. We had a TON of food, it was a mega feast but, I thought it was actually all really good. Everyone's costumes were uber creative and it was pretty low stress for me as a hostess compared to previous years. I loved every minute. Thanks everyone for coming. We can't wait for next year!
A lot of people have asked me and of course I'm throwing my annual Murder Mystery Dinner Party. It's going to be more intimate/small this year because we're saving money to go out to Utah for my sister's wedding in December but, the quality is still going to be just as spectacular as ever. This
year's theme is a Masquerade Ball. The characters are on a Magical
Guild Council; Vampire, Fae (Fairy), Werewolves, Wizards and Watchers. It's totally different theme/costume/format wise then previous years but, it's prefect for Halloween and I'm way excited. This past weekend we finished up these invitations and got (almost all of) them delivered. They turned out so fun and actually a lot easier then I thought they would be. The gold linen paper we used turned out to be the perfect thing to give them a magical feeling and after the dowels were stained we knew it was better then we thought. Doug wrote this great poem, perfect for introducing the event (I'll post that later) and now the ball is rolling. This week we'll start getting RSVP's back and then character assignments should go out before the end of the month.
****and let me just say for the record that it's at times like this that I miss you all the most I wish I lived close to ALL my friends! Kerstin, I wish you were planning this with me! April S- We should have done something like this in Providence. Liz- you guys should come up for the weekend and come!! :) ****
