Just wondered how the party went?

It's not until Tuesday. I've been home playing with my niece and great-nephew for three days! Way more fun than a bridal-themed party!

I would agree with that. I work in childcare while at school and took two little girls to a party and they are having a slumber party tonight. Far more fun than being in a bar!

I talked to a couple of people at school before bunko yesterday. They both agreed that they were not wearing the veils either! We need a minimum of 12 to play, and at 3:00, she only had ten. She couldn't get enough people to come! She ended up inviting her own mother to round out the tables. Which made too many, but I'm not sure of the story behind that. About three rounds in I realized: There wasn't a veil to be found. She had pictures of the wedding everywhere, reproduced the cake and food, and had center pieces on the tables so big you couldn't talk. But no veil. I leaned over to whisper to the friend I'd asked about it, and she said the host told her she hadn't had time to make them that day. BUT she had the materials and could whip one up if she wanted. That was a huge nooooo from my friend. It was kind of an awkward night. We always play with the same people, and she had three subs that no one seemed to want to relax around. On top of that, I'd checked with her the day before to find out if the food contained gluten. She read me food labels over the phone, and I ate two things I thought were safe. They weren't, and by bedtime I was feeling awful. I should have asked to see the labels myself, but she would have been dramatic and insulted if I'd done that. I could tell she was already insulted that I didn't eat any cake.

Oh that is a pain being on a gluten free diet.  Once I started investigating that for a kid that my DSD brought home (didn't know in advance to plan) I found out that a lot of sauces and prepared things have gluten that you wouldn't expect to have it.  I'm glad I found out that one of my friends has a gluten allergy so that on NYE when I made a pasta dish I got rice pasta so she could eat it.
