the time has come

. . . to fill you in on our halloween tradition.

this is our 6th year hosting a "letter" party, where every guest must come in costume as something that begins with the designated letter, we serve only food and drink that begins with said letter, decor also must be associated with the letter, and so on and so forth.

the first year the letter was "P".
looking back i realize those were much simpler times with only about 25 peeps {mostly NYC imports plus a few randos from the dog park}, some pigs in a blanket - both literally and figuratively- and alotta PBRs.
{i also realize i should have changed the heinous window treatments and lighting fixtures straight away but we had only moved to the 'burbs about 3 weeks prior}

looks like the following "P"s made an appearance:
pigs in a blanket
power ranger
peony {my adorbs ma in her homemade costume!}
punky brewster {lc nailed it!}
patrick swayze {circa roadhouse. obvi}
pink lady
pizza guy
richard petty {this is cheating, btw. has to be FIRST name that starts with letter}
pregnant nun {pregnant nuns love jell-o shots}
colin powell {another cheater}
partly cloudy and partly sunny {reigning champ}
punk rocker
princess leia {getting frisky with a piggy}
and look at my puppy george as a prisoner . . . ahhh, the memories.

clearly, this was before i was a complete party planning lunatic. if i could do it all again, there would be a wholotta pink goin' on . . . and i would maybe be pinkalicious herself . . . or princess kate middleton . . . or a pickle. c & p would love-love any/all of the above. but it's past their bedtime anyway.

over the last seven years, the party has taken on a life of it's own. and over the next few weeks, you'll be privy to the transformation. . .
the plan is to show you a party from years past every wednesday. . . UNTIL we get to the 2011 G party.

so what would you have been to the "P" party?

A peach. Or a pear. Or a pecan. I just really like dressing up as food.

You're too friggin' cute. A panda if I wanted to be comfy. A Parisian if I was feeling sassy :)
