Just One

Some Women, Some Cameras, Just One (that's our story, and we're sticking to it) beverage. Shake. Serve with twist of venting, crying, bitching, and laughing-laughing-laughing. Men Welcome. Buy us all the drinks you want, but we still won't sleep with you. Probably.

In record time.

I've decided that I must invite anal retentive people into my life. People with big ideas -- ideas with lots of details to implement.

So....

Melissa is giving a party for her hub's 40th. He's in a blues band. The theme is blues and barbecue. Yum! She asked for my help on some details. We found a great venue. She hired a great barbecue restaurant to bring the food. Of course, beer and wine is under control. But how can we make the place look the part?

Music-related confetti for the tables. Check.
CDs to hang around (with fishing line) to pick up the lights. Check.
Posters of old concerts. Check.
Centerpieces? Hmmm...

Let's make bowls out of old record albums! Yeah, lets!


Turn the oven on to 225 F. Put the record balanced on top of a glass jar that is on an old cookie sheet.



After 3 minutes, take it out (with a potholder!). It'll be all floppy. Lay it over a bowl and shape it.



We decided we liked the 'pinched' method the best. But even the 'scrunch' method looks pretty groovy!


Now we need to decide what to fill the bowls with -- Kisses? Chex Mix? Pretzels?

This party is going to rock!

Very cool. How does melted vinyl smell, by the way? When's the party? Be sure to post the sequel!

Neato! My friend made record bowls for Christmas gifts one year, and actually took the time to find an album that was appropriate for each person receiving one, which took more time than the actual melting and molding.

Yours look great! Hope the party's a blast!

The record bowls are such a neat idea! I'm sure the party is going to be fantastic...

The smell wasn't all that bad. The party is 2/3! Can't wait! (Andrew is going to sing Gimme Three Steps with the band. I totally need to video that and post it!)
