Time for the Titanic

On the 14th April, just a few Saturday nights ago I held a Titanic party in my home. It was for all the wonderful Homeschooling Mum's that I fellowship with each and every Thursday at Home Ed. We try and get together each month for some special hang out time. It's really great and this month we came up with the idea to have a fancy dress party for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's sinking.
If you know me at all you will know that it's all about the presentation!!! These are pictures of the "tickets" that I sent to each Mum so they could get "on board!"

I then HAD TO HAVE a back drop for the evening and so got busy sketching and then painting the Grand Staircase. It was sooooo much fun to make this come to life, I was really happy with the end result and everyone loved it too! YAY!

I asked my Mum and sister for all their "old" pieces of furniture and accessories to decorate the rest of my home, tablecloths, hat's, old lamps and candles! It was soooo much fun and I had a blast recreating the look of the Titanic and the era of the 1912's.

The fabulous Dress I found at the opp shop, finished off with my sisters gloves
and my Nan's antique necklace.

The other ladies of the evening:
Myself, Andrea, Christine, Cheryl and Amanda

Being a party at my place there was of course.... GAMES! I love games!! We played the Memory game with a whole bunch of old things on a tray that you had time to look and then write down what you could remember from the tray and lastly a Trivia game. All in all it was a wonderful evening with scrummy food (taken from the Titanic menu) and super fabbo company!
