Bacon Party Recap

That's right folks we threw a BACON PARTY! And not just any party but a surprise birthday bacon themed party. We are that cool. But seriously it was a good time. This happened a couple weeks ago and I just wanted to share it because I made some SUPER cute crafty things to take this party to the next level. But first some background. Our dear friend Sabrina was about to turn 25 and we were trying to come up with fun things to do for her birthday. She wanted to hang out Saturday night and then go to Valley Fair on Sunday. This sounded like a good plan. Between us girls we decided that a showing of 'Bridesmaids' (it was it the opening weekend) would be a great idea since we were all in TWO weddings last year. We also decided it would be epic if we wore our watermelon-pink bridesmaid dresses to the movie. So that was our plan to go to a movie decked out in bridesmaid dresses and then to meet up with the boys for food and drinks. Without the birthday girl's knowledge we arranged for the boys to be setting up the surprise bacon bday party. This girl LOVES her bacon and it just seemed like a good theme to run with. Everyone was to bring something bacon-y to eat and I made all the decorations. She was surprised and it was a great time!
