My friend Jordan was the host (we decided to rotate who hosts each month), and she bought all of us plain frames and gave us a whole bunch of supplies to use as decorations. It was fun to see what different people came up with when given all of the same options.
I made mine just using magazine pages. I found some cute floral backgrounds on the fashion pages and just mixed them up. I used plain glue to stick them to the frame, but I'd recommend a layer of Mod Podge over the top as well, if you ever attempt a collage frame. Then I stuck this feather on the corner with some hot glue. I'm really happy with it.
As for the book, this month we discussed The Hunger Games series. I know a lot of you have read/are reading them, so can I just tell you how obsessed I am for a minute. I finished all three books in four days and I couldn't stop thinking about them for a long time afterward (I'm still thinking about them, actually). There were some things I didn't like, but overall I think it was a really great series. I'm excited to see the movie next month, and we're also planning a Hunger Games themed party (no, we're not going to fight to the death, and yes, we are that nerdy). Also, I just need to say how much I love Finnick. That is all.
And no gathering would be complete without food. We ended up with a sort-of-unintentionally-French theme, so we're thinking about having a different worldly theme each month. We had macarons, brie, croissants, dips, wine (duh), our favorite punch (hawaiian punch, sprite, and rainbow sorbet), and my favorite: pita bread (get it? Peeta bread, nyuk nyuk nyuk).
Do any of you have a book club or regular girls' nights?
