Adventures in Pinterest: Tacky Las Vegas Party

It's been mentioned on the blog here and there, but for those of you who don't know - my sweet Handsome Husband and I are a week apart in age.  My birthday is exactly one week before his (I know, I'm a total cradle robber!).  So, most often, we combine our birthdays and celebrate with a big ole group of special friends!

This year was no different as we turned super old a quarter of a century this month (actually, HH's birthday is TOMORROW!), and I was itching to throw a theme party.  After lots of ideas, and many debates, we settled on a theme I had never actually heard of before.  Color me original.

Tacky Las Vegas

Tacky is really in the eye of the beholder, but to me?  Tacky Las Vegas begs for cocktail waitresses, tacky tourists, Hawaiian shirts, and lots and lots of sequins (though I love a good sequin piece of clothing, don't get me wrong).

Of course, I headed to Pinterest for inspiration and walked away with these two projects to copy make my own.

With some Dollar Tree playing cards, some old white ribbon I had lying around, and a glue gun - I came up with my Playing card garland:

And while I was fresh out of adorably chic apothecary jars, but I added a little pizzaz to a vase and candle holder:

There were a few other little details here or there, and some adorable outfits from the night.  The best part about the night though?  Cheesy as it were, it was spending another birthday with some wonderful friends, and it was especially sweet that it was in our home that we found just before our last birthdays.

Something all of these ladies have in common?  We went to high school together.  What can I say, I love a good longterm friendship.

Definitely the winners of best costume: Twin Oh Yeah as a magician and his girlfriend, Future Dr. Babies as his assistant.

My very Handsome dealer, and me as a tacky cocktail waitress.  You can't quite see it in the photo, but my "name tag" says "Bill's Gambling Hall & Saloon: Trixie", my code name for the evening.
