My little sister had her 30th birthday party over the weekend. I should stop calling her little as that makes me sound very big and old (note I am only 11 months older!). She started out wanting a Mad Men themed party, purely because she had a dress that fit the bill, then I suggested she have a Miss Universe themed pageant party, and that was shortly dismissed for reasons I fail to comprehend. I mean, come on… National Costume category?! Awesome. Swimwear, awesome for the boys. Evening Gown… you’d have at least ten things you could wear on the night and pull off without having to tell everyone within earshot you had a dress up party to get to.
Anyways, she soon got over trying to theme the whole party and with a bit of gentle persuasion, it was agreed that it was simply to be a classy, elegant affair. I haven’t yet seen all the photos on my newsfeed so I’m not sure if my invitation was, in fact, an accurate reflection of the evening’s proceedings. Very likely not.
Secretly, when I started designing, I still had Miss Universe on my mind – you know, that moment the host gets to open that juicy golden envelope with the winner’s name inside? Ha! She has no idea I inceptionised my pageant theme into her party.
Now for the sake of her husband who’s probably still cursing me for the cash he had to blow to honour the ‘classic cocktails & canapés’ wording – eep totally my bad – I’m sorry. *nervous laugh*
Your wife was worth every cocktail & canapé tray that swanned through that room right?!? Yep, that’s what I thought :)
