Trailer Trash Bash - Party Ideas

As poor newlywed collage students, our first place was a trailer, it was great first place with lots of good stories to tell our children and grandchildren. While we were living there I realized this was the perfect time to throw a "TRAILER TRASH BASH"

This was actually the easiest party to plan, because all your trash becomes treasured decorations...
The center piece was a Shopping bag, packing peanuts, empty cans, and some dandelions from my front yard

a laundry line over the dinner table, some christmas lights hung...
and a pringle can chandelier in honor of my husband who can't get enough of these chips.

I sent out some invited hand written, I mean Scribbled on the back of old reciepts

I covered the table with a big card board box, used newspaper as place mats, and TOILET PAPER as napkins!
For dinner we grilled hot dogs and had them with potato salad, chips and twinkies.
Trailer Trash Party Costumes
These were the best costumes and no she isn't pregnant!

it was more fun then any of us expected!

On a side note our neighbors came to meet us that day and welcome us to the trailer park. I opened the door to my house decorated in trash, and I have curlers in my hair with crazy 80's makeup. What a great first impression, right?!?

Wedding Video's

So during some of my boring days between the party planning I would sit down and watch our wedding video. I just loved it. Pictures of us growing up, stories of how we met, first kiss, the proposal, all topped off with footage of our wedding day!

While watching it one day I realized I was in a college town people meeting and getting married everyday, I had a camera, and my husband is technologic....I would like to try this, and my husband was way supportive when I told him, showing me what program to use and all the cool stuff I could do. This is why I married him ladies, he is simply amazing.


The morning came, when I woke up next to my Husband and realized the life I had when I was single was gone, my old hobbies just couldn't be apart of my new life.  It was a weird sensation, it was like starting over... I felt like a little kid again with the teacher asking me, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" How was I suppose to know?!  The days that followed, boredom became my companion. I was going CRAZY and needed to find something to do...FAST. 

That is when I  found my first new hobby...Planning Dates/Parties! It was perfect, it would keep me busy and give my husband I something fun to do together after a long day. My first Party I threw as a wife was my CLUE PARTY and you can find all the free PRINTABLE'S HERE

So I picked two couples I thought would get into the party theme and assigned them all Characters. I made these great announcements I took green card stock and put two sheets together, on the front I had a picture of clue and on the back I had the invitation, I also used a razor to cut two slits into the paper in one slit I put cards of the characters they were supposed to be and in the second slit I put two weapons for them to bring. Then I stuck the whole thing in a one of those tan envelopes and wrote confidential on front to make it look like the envelope you use in the game.
We had dinner together and admired everyones costumes. Then we broke out the board game and played a good old game of clue.
It was Mr. Green, in the Lounge with the Candlestick. Watch out Miss Scarlet!

After the game we took pictures and watched the movie "Clue." For those of you who haven't seen the movie it is great a comedy, mystery.

On a side not I just want to brag that Ms. White and Professor Plum had their first date at our house and are now happily married. My first Party planned was a success
