After the theme night overload we had in December, we decided to take a month off.
January was wonderfully slow. No party planning, no blogging, and - let's be honest - a less than daily school schedule!
Then came February, and we were back in full swing.
Joey gave us the idea for our latest theme.
He and the girls have developed their own version of "pick it or kick it!"
After dinner, he'll grab the laptop and start playing the pop/rock hits of the 80's. Stuff that we listened to when we were in high school.
The girls are, of course, horrified.
"People actually liked this stuff?!"
Anyway, the music led to the fashions, the fashions led to the fads, and it all led to a blast of an 80's party!
|Fortune tellers and Boom boxes, oh yeah!|
|Pac-man was the bomb|
|Oi! The eyeshadow!|
|Ditto the sweat bands!|
|"Ok mom, so basically if it's hideous now then it was|
cool in the 80's?"
Yes. Yes it was.
|Joe preppy - doing his best 'Blue Steel' pose!|
|Ok. So the tart isn't necessarily exclusive to the 80's,|
but it's the most colorful dessert you can find!
pop rocks, and 80's movie trivia.
And the night's feature film?
It was a great night!
