Ladies Night Birthday ‘RUSH’ Party {Guest Feature}

When Paula of Frog Prince Paperie creates a party, you KNOW you are getting something special. I was thrilled when she shared this latest event with me, which was a birthday party for a girl friend, and had a sorority rush theme. How unique and fun is that?!  As usual Paula’s styling is impeccable - here’s how she explains the concept:

“We are in a very small (five families) playgroup for my son, and it was a wild coincidence that three of us were all sorority sisters, albeit at different colleges. Much joking has gone on the past year about our little sisterhood.

When Courtney’s birthday came around and she really wanted to celebrate, we decided to make it fun and play on this bond of ours. We made up our own sorority (Mu Theta Mu a.k.a MOM) and made her a pledge for the evening. Before taking a 4-hour limousine trip through Melbourne, we had a nice dinner with all Courtney’s favorites. There was lots of pink, fancy little appetizers, liquor infused cupcakes and beautiful macaron cake tower favors from Sucre Azucar – beautiful AND tasty. Like melt in your mouth fabulously good.
A refreshing tray of mojitos was served up while we waited for dinner to finish.”

“The centerpiece for the table was created with a mirrored tray, a dozen tea-light candles and about 25 tiny vases. Each vase held a gerber daisy and the resulting mound of daises was really wonderful. Once the sun went down, we lit the candles (which reflected off the mirrored tray) and the whole arrangement simply glowed! Thanks again to Patti from Buds, Etc. Floral Studio for the herculean effort that went into finding just the right shade and enough of the gerbers for the arrangement.

Activities at an adult birthday party? Of course! You can’t have a pledge without asking them to do a few silly things. We draped her in pink boas, pacifiers, glow sticks, and let her refuse to wear an embarrassing t-shirt. Courtney was in love with Maddie’s tiara by Tradewind Tiaras from her birthday party, so we also let her wear that for the evening. We made her eat a goldfish and say the Greek alphabet before the match burned out. And while we were out we had a
little bag of mingling activities for her to complete. Turns out you CAN use the word “shinizzle” in a 90 second conversation with a stranger at least 7 times.”

I simply adore this theme with the gold fish, the MOM sorority, and beautiful table setting.  These ideas would be wonderful for a bridal shower too.

The gerber daisy printables collection is now available in the Esty Shop, with or without the “Birthday Rush” theme.
