I started telling you about my Fifty Shades party HERE and then gave you some yummy summer drink recipes from it HERE. What’s next on the Fifty Shades party reveal? Well, I just spent my extra time this evening watching two new-to-us episodes of Modern Family so tonight you will get just the party decor and prizes.
If you want to have a great Fifty Shades of Grey party, you need grey/silver decor and lots of good prizes. Some funny which make everyone laugh and some which turn the receiver crimson (trust me).
I had purchased 5 prize bags. The contest was who could bring the best thing that tied back to the books – a drink, appetizer, dessert, etc. I used the grey prize bags as some of my decoration. I also threw some kisses on the tables. Lucky for me a) I was shopping at Target again and b) the cute purple eye masks were in the $1 bin. So I grabbed a lot of those for door prizes.
I also had book discussion questions scattered throughout. And we discussed the book much more than I anticipated. It was great conversation.
I got some “grey” balloons which looked more silver, but did the job. Andy was disappointed I didn’t just blow up condoms. Then he was more disappointed that I hadn’t even thought of it. HA! So there’s another idea.
And the prizes? Well, one lucky winner got pancake mix and syrup (related to the book – she eats a LOT of pancakes). Another winner received the other book being talked about titled Bared to You. Two winners got a special treat from the “special” pharmacy aisle at your local Walmart. Yes, those pink and purple boxes shown below brought laughter, curiosity, and crimson faces. And finally I got some cute coasters HERE on Etsy that were a huge hit. Each lucky lady also snagged some grey nail polish.
So, what exactly won these great prizes? Come back tomorrow.
It’s been a long day and it’s time for me to HUSH.
