so. i get majorly bummed around valentine's day. because there is so much cute stuff to buy. and i love red and pink and hearts. and i just feel especially crafty and want to make mix tapes and sweaters and mushy valentines. but alas, i have no one to give these wonderful goodies to. high school boys suck. they'll appreciate me later.
anyway. i decided that this year i'm going to have a tea party for all my boyfriendless gal pals. my mom collects tea pots so we're each going to get a different tea pot. and the invitations are going to be all fancy and lacy and goopy and wonderful. and everyone gets a fun name like "madame ________" or "lady __________" or "duchess __________". because i'm a dork. everyone will be asked to dress nicely in red and pink and white and bring a small gift. we'll have have a chinese auction type thing so we can each get a valentines present. even if it's not from a boy. and then we'll probably watch some audrey hephburn movie or sixteen candles and swoon and whatnot.
so the purpose of me posting all of this was...
does anyone have any other ideas? foodwise? gamewise? decorationwise?
i know it'll be ten times better with craftster imput.
last night was tea party night. and even though a i had a lot of people bail out on me, it was still a crap load of fun. everyone dressed up and we had chicken salad sandwiches and pb&j and cucumber sandwiches and cream puffs and a cherry chip heart shaped cake and a butt load of cookies. and then we had a chinese auction and watched sabrina. and then we all fell asleep. you would think we're forty. but no. we're just a bunch of teenage girls who get a little sleepy past nine o'clock on a friday night. overall it was fairly banging. thanks for all the suggestions!
i made a valentines day mix cds for the invitations. it was uber sappy and cute. yet still danceable.
various table shots and shtttuufffff.....the circus tea pot is my favorite.
yeah. so after we woke up...
we were all kinda out of it. so we danced.
check out muh fly moves.
and my spectacular skirt. that started out as a dress. but then i got frustrated cause i looked bad in it so i cut it in half. yeaaahhh. not the smartest thing to do.
but i like it better as a skirt anyway.
