so. i just had a tea party on friday. but today is my birthday and we have off school. so i took it as a sign from god that i needed to have a party on sunday night. so i convinced my parents to allow me to have a 'small gathering' (which ended up being twenty seven people in my really small basement.) after last year's cupcake massacre, my dearest mom and dad were a little concerned about the party and told me if any small incident should occur, i wouldn't be able to get my permit for another three weeks- MINIMUM. so clearly. nothing bad could happen. because i reallly reallllly want to drive.
the theme of the party was trash. i put newspaper all over my walls and on the biggest wall i taped brown craft paper and i graffiti-itized it. later on in the night a couple of my artistic friends found the paint and added to it so it ended up looking much better. and i covered my couch and treadmill and most of the furniture in old sheets. and i put all the pillows in trash bags and covered the chairs in trash bags. i also got toliet paper (which was surprisingly strong- yay dollar store toliet paper) and used it as streamers. people had to come dressed as some interpretation of 'trashy'. people came as white trash, and hookers, and hobos, and mary-kate olsen, and oscar the grouch and it was just entertaining. though most people changed out of thier costumes by the end. overall it was one of my favorite parties. pictures:
the very best part was at the end when we were cleaning. and neil asked where the trash bags were. and i ripped one off a barstool.
