Show and Tell Tuesday-Grown Up Parties


Hi Friends!

It's Tuesday, which means I'm showing-and-telling with Andrea.  We're sharing any and all grown up parties.  You know what I learned while working on this blog post?  I don't throw enough grown up parties.  Let me rephrase that-I don't really throw any grown up parties.  I'm hoping it's just a phase of life thing.  Maybe this is something I should work on?!

It's gonna be really short and sweet because I don't have much to show you...haha!


Marla (the most fabulous party-thrower in our family) threw Tab a football birthday party.  It was super cute, complete with eye black, party favors, and tailgating food.




A couple years ago I hosted a birthday party for Marla (at her house because she invited neighbors-so it seemed easier for everyone) and coined it her "Favorite Things" party.  We had some of her favorite foods in tow, favorite friends, and favorite things.  I brought enough of her "favorite things"-all different- for each party guest to leave with something that was one of Marla's favorites.




I shared recently about the Favorite Things Night at my house-notice I didn't use the term "party", but I'm including in this post anyway.  :) We all brought a couple of our favorite things and left with some new favorites.


Hope you have the best day!  I'm off to plan a big party...working on the details now.  Only one thing is for sure-it's for GROWN UPS.  ;)

Ha! When I saw this week's Show and Tell Tuesday post, I was at a loss. No big grown up parties here. Looks like we need to hit the books and plan one ASAP.

I love coming to your house for parties!! Even if my kids are there (and it's not grownup only), it's always the BEST time!!

The Slaughters are the best hosts! Always relaxing and fun! Plus your house smells so good!

Thank you for sharing! I was wondering if you could give us more details on your Favorite Things bash? I need good ideas! ;) haha

Yes! Sorry, my link is wrong! I'll change it right now.

Such cute parties! And I don't think I've ever thrown an adult party! I mean, I host holidays at my house ... I guess that could count. 😂

Erika, can you post the link for the Favorite Things party? I read it when you originally posted it and want to refer to it again! Thanks!

Britt Hensley said...

This link-up has made me want to throw all the parties, but my kids' schedules are telling me 'whoa mama! You have plans already.' Happy Tuesday.

Erika Slaughter said...

LeAnn-Yes, ma'am! I got it changed. So sorry about that! I was walking into the office to change it and someone called and I completely forgot. :)

I used to be so good at throwing parties! I don't know what happened! I need to start again! Any excuse for a social gathering and I'm there!

If I had known you were doing this theme I would have sent you pics of the Pirate Party, Mexican Siesta Party, or the Country Bumpkin Party! ❤️
