Happy Sunday guys! I hope you've all had an amazing weekend so far! As you will already know if you've been reading my last few blog posts, last night was the night of my Friends themed "Cups and Ice" party. I've been so excited to host this party ever since I first came up with the idea that I could hardly sleep the night before and spent all day yesterday cleaning the house in preparation for the party. All my planning paid off though as it was a completely stress free night for me and I felt like I was able to fully get involved whilst still being the host (this isn't usually the case for me as I am incredibly OCD - and I don't say that lightly).

We started off the night digging into the Friends themed food that me and my awesome guests kindly put together. As you can see we had pizzas (the food of Joey's ancestors), meatball subs (Joey's lifeline), cheesecake (Little Mama's Bakery style), traditional English trifle (sans mince sauteed with peas and onions) and choc chip cookies (recipe courtesy of Neslé Toulouse). Also, unpictured, we had a table full of "tiny portions of pretentious food" including some fancy handmade chicken and sausage rolls courtesy of Josh and Ella.
Of course, what would a Cups and Ice party be without a display of cups and ice? I had a lot of fun picking out Friends themed colours for the decorations, plates and cutlery (purple and teal blue for Monica's apartment, with pops of yellow for the frame on the back of Monica's door in case you were wondering) and even supplied some cute mason jar cups for my guests to take home as a party favour.
Obviously I had 'Friends' playing in the background throughout most of the party, that is when we weren't playing Pictionary or Friends Trivia games. Pictionary was especially fun as we played in teams of girls versus boys. The boys managed to beat us by one point in the end - clearly they were cheating!

I am so glad that I finally held a Friends themed party. I definitely feel like I have just crossed something huge off my bucket list. Have you ever thrown a TV show themed party before? I'd love to hear all about it if you have!
