1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Nerd themed white elephant party on: June 10, 2005 09:41:38 AM
Hi everyone,

So we had a white elephant party last year inspired by this weird hamster/gerbil looking lamp we found at hobby lobby. The party was 80s themed and was such a hit, we've decided to do another one this year. Grin My friend Sarah and I have decided on a nerd theme, but we're kind of stuck on some details. If we have a movie on in the background, it has to be nerd related...I'm thinking "revenge of the nerds". I was wondering if y'all have any ideas about what kind of music we should play...last year we made a CD with 80s songs on it and gave a copy to all of the guests along with a little bag of 80s candy and related paraphernalia.What could we include in the bags this year that would go along with the nerd theme? We also had prizes for best and worst costume, best and worst white elephant gift. What would be good prizes for these categories?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!  Cheesy

I was just watching some Wolf's Rain and got to thinking about swaps. Wouldn't it be fun to do a swap based upon your favorite anime? Any one else like this idea or am I just in an anime induced haze?  Smiley
