It’s time for a Pantie Party!
So being a mom is fabulous, but sometimes we moms need to inject a little bit of excitement (wholesome excitement) into our lives. My friend Via, invited me to a party that just sounded like too much fun.
You’ve been going to parties ever since you were a little girl. Birthday parties, slumber parties, holiday parties….And after you became a mom, you started going to “mommy parties”. Everything from scrap-booking, to jewelery, to children’s books, to Bunko parties. They are a great excuse to get you out of the house so you can spend some quality GIRL time with your friends. You can meet new women, maybe even have a glass of wine, and just focus on being an adult. In short, parties are a gift in themselves to mothers everywhere.
But let’s face it, after awhile all the parties start to seem the same. I’m always ready to add some excitement to mommy life (in a wholesome way of course), so my friends and I decided to start doing a new kind of party. We did a “Gift of the Month” party where we’d alternate houses and bring everyone the same $20 or less gift.
That was fun, but then my friend Via came up with an even better idea – a Panty Exchange party! And she did it as an alternative to your typical holiday party. Honestly how many “secret Santa” type presents from parties past do you still have?
And the best part is NOBODY gets you better presents than your girlfriends, right? So why not shake up your parties and host your own Panty Party! Invite all of your girlfriends and if you have room, have them invite some of their friends which allows you to expand your circle of friends. Have everyone bring 1 brand new pair of average sized $20 panties wrapped in a cute package. This is where things get interesting!
Now there are a myriad of ways to actually do the exchange; draw names out of a hat, have everyone “audition” for a certain panty package, make everyone switch, etc. Pick a way and have fun with it.
I promise you will laugh for hours over the clever panty styles your friends will bring. They can be bedazzled, have sayings on them, fur trim, lace, and be just all around fun! You can do this once a year, or once a month. And your husband will anxiously wait for you to come home so he can see which fabulous ‘present’ you come home with.
Party on Haute Mama!
As always, I love hearing from you. Please leave your comments below. Wishing you a fabulous day!
