With the suggestion of a co-worker, I decided to do a red carpet theme (to tie in the theme of Redbook magazine) and encouraged guests to wear black dresses and hats. My daughter and I had fun shopping at Party City for decorations and laid out snacks (fruits, veggies, mini-cupcakes and Straw Hat Pizza) for guests. To boot, my younger sister brought her strawberry cake pops – which were absolutely yummy –to solidfy the theme.
My co-worker assumed the role of party photographer and snapped pictures of us with our cute Redbook bags. We spent the rest of the time hanging out being “Chatty Cathys.” It was a fun night and am looking forward to hosting my next Redbook Happy Hour party with the theme “Tea Party with Karaoke” (I can’t carry a tune, but it won’t stop me from belting out a song).
Look for us in an upcoming Redbook edition. We may just be in it as we were asked to upload our pictures from the party.
