I don?t know about you, but I love a good party. Ever since I was younger, I?ve always loved throwing parties whether it was for a birthday, graduation, or just because! When my parents bought our house in Albuquerque, the previous owners told them the house was known around the neighborhood as the party house. The previous owners were on the board of trustees at my high school, meaning many people knew of our house before we even moved in. We took that reputation very seriously and threw parties often 😉
When my best friend, Delia, got engaged, I knew I wanted to be involved in throwing her a shower. Partially it was because I?ve been looking forward to her wedding since she and Ryan started dating, which was seven years before they got married! At first I had planned for Steven and I to throw them a couple?s shower, since they are our double date buddies for life. Steven and I, as a couple, are basically in a long distance relationship with Ryan and Delia 😉 But then, Amy, Delia?s MOH asked me to combine forces and throw Delia a bridal shower together. So I shifted gears and we started to plan.
The party doubled as a lingerie shower for Delia. She compiled a wish list on Victoria?s Secret (where she used to work!) and we included a shortened link on her invitation so people could get the things she liked. She included non lingerie items like bathing suits and some Bride apparel.
Back to the menu for a second. We decided to serve lasagna, based off of the episode ?The One with the Dozen Lasagnas.? We didn?t make a dozen lasagnas but we did have three different types. Two traditional: a meat lasagna and a cheese lasagna? and for the third we did a creamy white chicken lasagna with green chile (another one of D?s favorite things!)
