Project Party Weekend: Success

I can't believe it's come and gone! The weekend was a smash hit. All the girls hit it off from the beginning, and had a great time staying up late laughing and talking, eating lots of no-no foods, opening gifts, playing games, and making pottery. I mainly want to share pictures because they say it better than I can!

Aside: On a little bit of a worse note, I got sick on Thursday night at work and had to come home at 1:30am on Friday. That's right. The day of the party I got sick. I'm talking running fever with a terrible headache, sinus pressure, sore throat, ear pain, etc. I dosed myself up on antibiotics I had stashed at the house, Tylenol, and Robitussin (the cough set in later). I felt okay most of the time, but I ended the weekend with absolutely NO voice. I'm voiceless. It's terrible. How in the world am I going to work on Monday with no voice? I think I'll make a standard questionnaire. I'll point to the question. The patient will state the answer. lol. Okay, enough with the aside...

A quick rundown of the intinerary:
1. Friday Night- meet at my house, paint a piece pottery, eat at Joe's Crab Shack, spend the night at the Embassy Suites

2. Saturday Night- Lingerie dinner and shower at my house with games and presents.

(A huge thanks to Anna and Bonnie. Without their combined efforts, this fabulous shin dig would have never gotten off the ground. THANK YOU!)

Welcome to the party! DIY wreath.

Appetizer table, then dessert table. We had food all over the counter with sexy sayings in front of each to label the food (ex: Buttered Bread was "Butter me up, baby." Chip and Dip was "Hot n' Spicy." Too bad we didn't snap a picture!

The cake with the saying Anna made up. Too cute.

The fireplace says "bride to be", there are lingerie pieces hung around the room, wineglass shaped candles lit, and bowls of pink kisses and pink m&ms in bowls.

DIY Martha Stewart pom poms with DIY placecards and holders

Honeymoon pictionary. The best game we played. So much fun!

I asked Judd questions about him and Kacie before the shower. Kacie had to guess what answer Judd picked. A wrong answer meant 2 pieces of gum. 14 pieces of gum later, the game ended!

What's a lingerie shower without toilet paper bride?

Her adorable loot!

Mom stopped by before the guests arrived and left a box for Kacie. It read, "A gift for your honeymoon night. Dry clean only. Low heat." Inside were 3 tiny pieces of string. Hilarious!
