(just kidding on the title of this post, ps)
My friend got a record player for Christmas! So naturally, we had to throw a party to celebrate. We got all the records that we could gather up and brought the record player and records to my brother's house. I enlisted the help of my new sister in law to help plan the party and decorate. There were little lights that were strung up, glitter records hanging from those, a wall of music notes, and not to mention hamburgers and banana splits. Our bellies were full and happy afterward!
We had planned for way more people to come, but we realized how blessed we were that so few came. Through games and dinner we got to know each other better and it was so much fun. We played a game called Times Up which is pretty much the best game to humiliate yourself. It's high stress, lots of thinking, and a lot of pressure! But it is the best game to play with a group of friends.
The whole night we had different records playing in the background. Selections such as Boston, Foreigner, Frank Sinatra, Beach Boys, and so much more! I love the sound of a record playing. And especially if Frank Sinatra's voice is coming from the record player!
All I wanted was the Buffalo Gals track from It's a Wonderful Life. I feel like it is such an iconic song because of the movie!
So all in all, if any of you are on the fence about holding your own record party, just go for it. Record players and old records are a good excuse to throw a party.
