Was bringing that up just an excuse to link back to the engagement post? Perhaps.........
Last weekend I had the gals (and - seeing as it turned out to be a bit of an engagement party - the guys too) over for a Fifty Shades of Darker masquerade party. I've "read" all the books and am SO pumped for the release of the film on Feb. 10th. Now, when I say "read" I've listened on audible. Boy, let me tell y'all, THAT is a book that is wayyyyy more fun on Audible while sitting in rush hour. I remember at one point during the book I just sat in the driveway, I couldn't get out of the car I was so hooked!
I knew I wanted to throw a donut + cocktail party in honor of the film’s February 10th release. I don't know about you, but nothing is sexier than donuts and cocktails. Just my honest opinion.
In addition to a Red Satin Fifty Shades of Grey red wine for us to split, I also had a silver photo backdrop, black and silver balloons and the CUUUUTEST goodie bags to give the girls! Inside the goodie bags was a copy of Fifty Shades Darker book so they could read it again before we all go to the theaters next weekend and watch together, a great lounge shirt, a masquerade mask to wear at the party in case anyone forgot to bring one, and a makeup bag!
Shake Shake Shake over Ice and Serve!!
