My friends and I enjoy getting together and often take turns trying to outdo each other with the most outlandish party themes. The best one so far has been the bridesmaids party. My friend kate had the idea and we had a blast. When the movie Bridesmaids came out on her, she set the plan in motion. All the ladies and fellas were instructed to dress up in the ladies old bridesmaid dresses to come over and view the movie. Although many of us had already seen the movie in the theater, it was definitely funny enough to watch again. Not to mention the hilarity of seeing everyone in their fabulous fashions. After the movie we had a fashion show where everyone got an opportunity to strut their stuff on a homemade catwalk. Prizes were given for the ugliest dress as well as the most ill-fitting. You can imagine who that went to—one of the bigger men stuffed into his much smaller wife’s cotton candy pink taffeta!

    What a Cool idea for a party theme!! And I thought the last party I went to was pretty good. But, yours is better. Ours was sort of nerdy.

    It was a contest between two different docu-drama movies — pitting a serious German spy movie against a hilarious & silly Japanese movie. The food was party-themed as well. The invitations that were sent out were amazing. The house was decorated half in a German & half in a Japanese motif.

    Good times. Japan won.

    I should amend my post to say that it was held on “Super Bowl Sunday”. Lol. As sort of an “Anti-Super Bowl Party”. It was well attended. Again – super nerds.


    Bridesmaids! I love that movie…have you seen “Friends with Kids”? I can’t wait to see that one!

    Anyway, very unique party theme! I’m hosting my sister-in-law’s wedding shower in July and we’re doing a ‘Victorian tea party’. I am having so much fun rummaging through antique/thrift stores!

Your comments make my day!
