1. The time of day matters. Steph wanted something really chilled out and fun so instead of having it at night and then going clubbing like most, she had it on a lazy Sunday afternoon with no clubbing involved. This gave everything a really relaxed feel to it and most people stayed 'til late!
2. Interactive food is always a hit! Steph made some gingerbread men to cater for gluten free allergies and provided colored icing so guests could make their own creations. Everyone loved it!
|I got my cute sailor pin up girl hat from Ebay and Steph is wearing her stolen high school graduation cap.|
We also played a lot of Cards Against Humanity- click to find out what it is. It's pretty much the most awful and hilarious game I've ever played!
|How cute is the pinata! It was actually so sad to see him strung up like a lamb to the slaughter :(. But his insides were so tasty!|
|Action shot! Lollies and debris flying everywhere!|
|That's me on the right. With the double chin! Imo, Steph was much much cuter than me!|
I think all the points I mentioned made it an awesome and unique party. I much preferred it over the typical 21st booze up, but then again I'm quite an old soul. I wish my 21st was this good, but sadly I'll never have the chance to recreate it. There was no fancy cake, speeches or slideshows for me! *bitter*.
