Party time..... excellent!

Hubby is turning the big 4-0 in a month and we're having a combined 40th with his best friend, Simon. 

Simon and Glen have been friends since they were about 7 years old and even though they grew up together in South Africa they still live less than 2kms from each other on the other side of the world! And our son's are in the same class together at daycare - I wonder if it's another 3decade friendship forming?

So for the combined age of 40, and to celebrate the decade which was their heyday we're having an 80s themed party!

We ordered our costumes last night. I can't tell you what the boys are going as because it's going to be a surprise. All I can say is wait till you see the photos - AH!!! 

But we got my costume and Di (Simon's wife) costume. 
Think fluro, mesh gloves, rar-rar skirts, big hair.... it's going to be great fun!!!

Anyone have any good 80's party tips? 

We're getting a juke box with 80's music programmed and it's being catered for finger food.

I'm thinking disco balls, black table cloth, silver metallic helium balloons. What do you think?

And on another note... THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the lovely congrats comments to my last baby announcement post, it was so nice to share the news with all of you and I'll treasure the thoughtful comments!

Have a great day,


  1. Hi Janette, That is very exciting I just loved the 80's. I am thinking you may be looking a little Madonnaish.. Can't wait to see the photos. Mimi xx

  2. Oh that is going to be a hoot of a night Janette. Can't wait to see the photos. Weren't the 80's the best!!! .....except for the sunbaking and skin cancer... I am paying for it now. Hey, and such wonderful news about baby. I am soooo happy for you. The best time of your life. Enjoy! Siblings...such a blessing in life. A-M xx

  3. That sounds like a lot of fun. I love 80's music, Duran Duran, Spandeau Ballet etc. I love me a bit of fluoro too :)

  4. Oh how exciting! I've always thought an 80's party would be a hoot - the music, the costumes... can't wait to see what you come up with and how you all dress up :)

  5. Oooo how fabulous! Hubby and I were just watching hits of the 80's on Music Max. There are some absolute pearlers! It will be a great party :o) Good timing too, with all those bright, block colours coming back into fashion now!


Thanks! I love reading your comments! Jxx
