Shortycake Creations put the party together with sweets, decorations, and setting the house up. My three-seasons front porch was transformed into a French themed bridal boutique, complete with French framed artwork hung on the wall, flowing fabric at every corner and wedding & bridesmaids dresses showcased throughout.
The pièce de résistance of Shortycake Creations Party Creation was of course the photo-op setup in the living room: Balloons, black back drop, an official Bridesmaids Logo T-shirt used as signage, and OF COURSE, no Bridesmaids Movie photo booth would be complete without a toilet as the main prop! YES! I had a real toilet in my living room!
We voted to watch the unrated version, passed out individual bags of popcorn and pushed the laugh button. From the first scene to the credits there was not a moment of silence and I’m pretty sure a few gals pee’d their pants but were too proud to announce it!
When the movie ended a trivia game about it was played for the main giveaway (this was after we all dabbed the tears from our eyes and touched up our smeared makeup)--A gift basket retail valued at over $80 of Watkins, Gold Canyon Candles, & Tastefully Simple products, and the Bridesmaids T-shirt. Oh, but the party did not end there. Off to the boutique to put on the dresses for our after movie photo shoot! What a hoot and toot that was.
I woke the next day sad the party was over and very happy that my bridesmaids’ dresses were finally worn more than once!
Thank you to Universal Pictures, ThinkJam, and Walmart for providing The Mom Standard the opportunity to introduce this hilarious movie to my friends and force us to “break from your chains” of our daily grind and have fun!
