chuckle Host a "Tacky" Party

Why? Because everyday there is a reason to celebrate and party!!


Tacky Party!

This party is tons of fun for everyone, no matter their age or gender. And there is no worry over the perfect decorations, food or prizes. The object is to be as tacky as possible! This is one they will talk about for a long time because it is so unusual and lends itself to tons of giggles for everyone!

Invitations: Use invitations you wouldn't think of for an adult party - like Barbie, Powerpuff girls, etc. Write in large wording that everyone show up in their tackiest outfits possible and be sure to mention there is a prize for the "best" dressed (tackiest outfit).

Decorations: Use every type of decoration you can think of. Christmas lights, halloween banners, St Patricks day wall cut-outs, different color crepe paper strewn about. The "tackier" the better

Activities: Play Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Twister, Musical chairs, etc. You cannot imagine how much fun grown women and men have playing these games that they most likely havent played in years! Be sure to take pictures of your guests playing these games for memories and possibly for favors too!

Food: Use tacky finger foods. Sloppy Joes, hot dogs, off-brand drinks, etc. This can be fun to prepare for and a ton of giggles for your guests to actually see what you've "created". For a crowd the size youa re anticipating, you would most likely want to go with a buffet. See below for buffet planning tips.

Favors/Prizes:A Tiara and sash for the Queen of Tacky, a crown for the King of Tacky! Voted on by everyone, either by secret ballot or showing of hands, etc.

Hand out single use cameras for your guests to cature the fun and tackiness of the evening.

I havent had one before but it does sound like a lot of fun!!

I would love to be invited to something like this!

I think that we need more things like this in our lives today......a get-away from all of the serious stuff that is going on in our lives.

Love the idea! What a blast it would be!

I'd get to be my aunt from the 70's! She wore curlers (all the time) and over the curlers she donned a flowery print plastic shower cap or pair of my baby cousins rubber pants, and she always had a cigarette dangling from her mouth!

She also lived in housecoats and fluffy slippers! And her extra-long fingernails were always painted meticulously in red, as were her toenails!

Me, too, Mom! LOL!!!

Aside from my dear aunts antics and ways, she is still (to this day) a super-great/awesomely friendly person, and yes, she's still as wacky (today) as she was back then!
