Not on my List But . . . Throw a Themed Party

27 Oct

So, for anyone that know me, you know I LOVE a bit of fancy dress, and there would be no chance of this “challenge” ever appearing on my Life List, because it is just the done deal!  A Sasha party = theme = fancy dress!!

Two dinner parties that I hosted for some fantastic friends, each had a theme!  The first party was a murder mystery night, with the theme being Italian Mafia!  It was a fantastic night, with everyone getting into their roles, and all arriving in the most fantastic fancy dress!!

The second dinner party was as a part of a come-dine-with-me event that Ollie and I, and three other couples organised so that we each organised dinners at our houses.   After much deliberations, Ollie and I decided on a 80’s theme, preparing prawn cocktail for starters, homemade chicken kievs for main course, and of course the obligatory vienetta ice cream for dessert!  All washed down with a creme de menthe!  And of course, Ollie and I dressed up for our guests!  Ollie looking like a  extra out of Miami Vice, and me as 80’s GoGo girl!!

For our 30th birthday party, we decided that we would have a big party, and that without saying it would have to have a fancy dress theme.  And to be a little different, we chose the theme “What did you what to be when you grew up?” . . . . . . .

"I ain't nothing but a gold digger!"

So with a head full of ideas of what I would love to do in my lifetime, it was time to put pen to paper/fingers to keyboard, and make a list of all those ambitions, dreams, and desires in one place!

And this here is the place! Well, not in this posting but in the link at the top of this blog!  So go on, take a look, and feel free to give me some more ideas!!
