UPDATED: Office Premiere Party Recap

Our third-annual Office Premiere Party was a smash! It was such a success, in fact, that I only had time to snap a handful of random pictures while finishing a delicious meal for more than a dozen people and making last-minute adjustments to my Pam-inspired outfit.

**Lucky for me, these
GLORIOUS friends captured the party perfectly. See pictures below.

Party highlights:

- Chili's-esque dinner (again, I know)
- Banana-split pie
- Business casual attire (awesome participation, guests)
- Amazing company ("company," he he, I'm hilarious)
- Bubblewrap tablecloth
- Sticky note wall decor (I tried to recreate the feel of an office by adorning my walls with memos from "Future Dwight," fliers for the "Finer Things Club" and documents about dealing with difficult people. I also used an entire package of post-its. One of my guests said it was very Anthropologie-esque. That guest is my new favorite friend).
- Nifty gifty exchange (hybrid of the Christmas exchange and the nifty gifties presented by Michael after the Scranton merger). The most coveted gifts included these and this.
- An awesome screening of the premier. I need to re-watch the episode by myself so I can appropriately swoon over Jim and Pam! Awwwww!
The tablescape (no room for a centerpiece this year -- too much food!)

Nice shot, Harley!

"Business cards," placecard holders and Jell-O.

Post-it overload.

Love the Kings, hate this picture of me.

Heck yeah it was a smash! (okay, that's more Napoleon than Office but you catch my drift.) I've been waiting for this post. We LOVED the party and your place DID look so Anthro.;) Everything was perfect, delicious and soooo huh-larious. Harley snapped some good photos. I will send them to you stat. Meantime, how 'bout that blind blog date?
