Any excuse to have a party at home and any excuse to dress up! For my 40th I had a 70’s Porn/Punk Party, people really made an effort to dress to the theme and it was one of my best parties and gathering of friends.
I have loads of idea’s floating around of parties I want to have. Rocky Horror, Trailer Park Trash, Shebeen…. and the list continues. So when I realised it was one of our best mate’s 40th pending, I dived in head first and offered venue, theme and party services!
So this Saturday our home will be turned into a Tavern. We will hosting Hans(a) Shebeen Party 4.0 (pretty cool I think since he is called Hans). I have plastic table clothes (covers), beer crates, plenty of beer posters and a few interesting home decorated signs. Guests have been asked to bring beer in quart bottles and there will also be a few half drum braai’s where their meat will braai’d. I have a little SPAZA vibe going in the one corner with Wilson Toffee’s, Smoothies and a few tins of Zam Buck. Hans especially liked the theme as in his mind there was no dress code, as it is like going down to the pub. My mind tells me otherwise and I have pulled out my faithful Eastern Cape shweshwe skirt, leopard print vest, afro and hooped earrings! The iPod playlist is loaded: Juluka, Savuka, Mandoza & Bongo Maffin.
All that is needed now is for me to attempt to make a pot of Maize Meal on Saturday and for the guests to arrive!
