A huge thankyou for all of you that made suggestions for a costume theme for my 25th Birthday Party in this post.
I liked all of your suggestions, especially the idea of Uniforms (Unicorns?) or a Japan theme.
Pondering my theme whilst in a dull meeting at work, I realised the answer has been in front of me all along!
At work we have an absolutely lovely middle aged man(ager) T who wears unique woollen jumpers with his suit pants every.single.day. Usually they are 3 sizes too big, have a giant knitted cowl neck in a contrasting colour, or have a knitted button feature on the sleeve. (Yes.)
Sometimes I have a bit of a giggle to myself, imagining that his wife knits them and he has to wear them to work so as to not to offend her.
And then it hit me- an Ugly Jumper Party! (Thank goodness T doesnt read this, and isnt close enough for me to invite to the party. He is a very nice man, just has some dorky jumpers.)
It's easy to organise for my guests- every Op shop has atleast one treasure, they will be warm (no bikini parties for a mid-June birthday!), and has potential to be quite amusing!
Here are some treasures I have found on my quest-
|I am very afraid of the Terror Fish|
|I'm sure my Mum had me wear one of these in the mid 90's. Source|
|You just know the creator debated on the collar- and if it was too much? I think that ship sailed when you put flamingoes in Santa hats|
|My Mum would call this one 'snazzy'|
|Isnt this one perfect for your autumn wardrobes, with the beautiful colours? What do you mean, it's not?|
