In celebration of 'Rocking out my 20's in style', my lovely sister decided to throw me a 1920's inspired birthday bash. She based it around 1920's NYC as I've ALWAYS wanted to go to New York City. If I can't GO to NYC, then NYC will come to me!
Both she and my awesome mom did an amazing job of organising, prepping, baking, decorating, styling... they should be professional party planners, for reals.
As part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias, (read more posts by searching #cbias on Twitter!) we went to town at our local Asda, shopping for lots and lots (and lots and lots and lots) of party food. I shop here regularly as I work right over the road 2 days a week - result!
Asda - Frome, Somerset
(yip, we're country bumkins!)
I was thrilled by the sheer choice of nibbly party food on offer, and lots of things for just £1 or £2! We stocked up on Chicken Satay with peanut dips, mozzarella sticks, spring rolls, chicken nuggets, chippolata's - yummy yummy goodness!
The freezers were all neatly packed, clearly marked, clearly priced and easy to access a few at a time so we could stock up in style!
Then we headed off to buy our bread for the buffet sandwiches and were pleased to see our favourite bread was pricelocked at just £1 per loaf - 4 of those into the trolley please!
No party is complete without a Pringle party
This sparkling perry was DELISH!!!!!!!! I think I had about
Ten five glasses! (it's only 5% alcohol so it's all good) And at only £2 per bottle - bargain!
In fact, ALL of the drinks choice in Asda is just amazing. Loads to choose from and fantastic discounts on their Roll Back prices.
Next we headed off to find Wrapped Sweeties for the............
PINATA BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shanah fell in love with him as soon as I got him home, scroll down to see her beating the shamooza out of him..
We also shot over to the 'party aisle' to pick up candles...
Serviette's and tablecloths
And plenty of foil platters to serve all of the lovely grub on
The snack stash!
The Pinata stash - there are a fantastic range of Wrapped Sweets at Asda, perfect for Pinata's, we originally wanted Skittles but didn't fancy eating skittles off the dirty dance floor so opted for wrapped sweeties!
The girls set to work on filling up the donkey? horse? I'm not sure... Pinata!
Then it was time to spritz ourselves up and throw ourselves into the 1920's - Gangsters and Flapper girls galore!
The food turned out amazing and there was only 1 platter of sandwiches left at the end of the night, which proves the yummy snacks were definitely a HIT!
My amazing Chocolate Fudge cake - how clever is this??! My blog printed on as an image, then a space for everyone to write a message with an edible pen. Love Love Love.
Watching the head get smacked off pretty much traumatised me for life.(I'm weird like that)
But the kids LOVED this!
Bringing NYC to meeeeeeeeee! My Yellow Taxi cab necklace from my sister - LOVE!
And here she is in all her bare-footed glory.. the world's greatest party animal / planner - rocking out to Gangnam Style.... it definitely gave the Charleston a run for it's money!
I had an absolutely FANTASTIC night, filled with great friends, family, lots of laughter, love and Scrummy Food & Drink. All in All a pretty darn good birthday if I do say so myself.
Happy Birthday to Meeeee!
