The chocolate party turned out really great and was a lot of fun. This year I did chocolate fondue with fruit dippers. Each couple brought a chocolate dessert to share. We had quite the chocolate variety, and I thought the desserts this year out did last year’s. Everything was delish. The winner of the chocolate dessert contest made chocolate cream puffs. Decadant! We also had a photo contest for the best couple’s picture. I scounged up a few costume items from Stella’s dress-up box and bought some fake mustaches and victorian masks. I threw an old sheet over our mudroom door for the photo backdrop and rented a polaroid camera. All the couples really got into it and were excited to take their photo home. After we played “the married questionaire game”. We had new questions this year and of course it was hilarious. Definitely a fun way to get to know other couples. So, of course I had to award the winners with some saucy prizes, since it’s a couples party. The three winners chose from the following gifts: get lucky dice, chocolate body paint, lovers vouchers and couples door hangers.
Decorations: red tulips and colorful paper cut-outs for table top. And to tie in the costume theme I got “pick your nose” cups.
