Masquerade Madness Foreplay Friday!

What an awesome weekend!!! One of my best friends and I planned the party to end all parties for the Foreplay Friday ladies this past weekend. What started as a high end house party turned into a circus theme of entertainment and fun. We really wanted to knock our friend's socks off after a few lackluster events and I think we exceeded all of their expectations. This brainchild was born when we were traipsing along 17th Avenue and stopping for a drink at each bar we passed.We stopped in at Ox & Angela and the charismatic bartender had us captivated for over two hours. At the end of his flashy show he gave us a card and mentioned that he privately caters and bar tends for events with his company Liquid Dynamix. That got us thinking! What if... we had a house to throw a big bash in (we secured our friend's mansion in Aspen who is currently traveling the world)... had a bartender create specialty cocktails for us.... and then we thought: what better than a stripper giving us a "noise violation"??... This idea turned into many more and we ended up hiring a belly dancer to break the ice at the beginning and finally some live music in the form of Matt Blais. Matt was INCREDIBLE. He had no idea what he was showing up for and a coworker hooked us up through a long chain of people. He didn't know if he was playing for a retirement party or what the deal was. He began his set with "to the weirdest gig I've ever played!" and I am sure it was a night he will never forget ;) .. We set up a candy bar, decorations, had glow sticks for the girls and a masquerade theme. It took a lot of time and effort to plan this but it was so worth it. I hope you gals had fun! Here are some highlights :)
Candy bar!
My beautiful partner in crime!
First guest to arrive! Pretty neighbor with a mask from New Orleans!
Spence getting set up. It was great because he brought his own bar, glassware, tools and mats. He also got us a great deal on booze so we did an all-inclusive all-you-can-drink deal for the ladies.
I highly recommend this enthusiastic, hard working bar tender for your event! He really impressed us and went far beyond the call of duty.
Another arrival. Can you believe she MADE this mask ??? Amazing!
Speaking of sexy arrivals. Wowza!!!
How amazing is this mask?! Bought online.. So unique!
Our first specialty drink- "Royal Bubbles". Prosseco & Chambord
The drinks that Spence created for our event displayed on his iPad. SO cool!
