Real Party: Breast Cancer Fundraiser

First off, Happy Halloween everyone!  It's hard to believe that another Halloween has come and gone and that another October is in the books.  Did your house see a lot of trick or treaters tonight?  We had about 10-12 kids stop by... which was pretty good I thought, being that we're new to the neighborhood.  My favorite was a little girl who was dressed as an adorable witch telling me that Reese's were her favorite candy!  Ah, too cute!

I've been super busy getting stuff ready and brainstorming more ideas for the baby showers I'm hosting in the next couple of weeks - one for my sister on the 13th and one for a good friend from college on the 20th!  Geesh, before you know it, it's going to be Thanksgiving... then Christmas and the New Year!  Where did 2010 go (although, I'm really excited for this year to be over - it's been way too crazy for me!  I'm hoping 2011 comes with a better forecast!)... With the update on the showers, I wanted to apologize for my lack of postings lately - I promise to a better blogger!

Anyway, I wanted close out October with something that wasn't Halloween related, but still appropriate for the time.  I came across this adorable and super cute idea for a Breast Cancer Fundraiser and thought since October's ending, so is breast cancer awareness month - but that doesn't mean we should be supporting the cause and forget about the disease.  I had to share this because the details were just too great - and it was such a sassy party for a fundraiser!

I came across the fundraiser on Catch My Party.  The party was hosted by Aileen's friend Denise, who was raising money for the 3-day Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Walk.  Aileen is the creative mastermind behind Lil' Buckaroo Designs and designed the printables for the event {including the cute little bra art}.

How cute is this hot pink and black invite!  Such a great idea to spend time with your friends while still raising money for a great cause!
Didn't I tell you that bra art was too cute?!?!
Always nice to have some prizes on-hand to let your guests know you appreciate their donation and support!
A great color scheme carried throughout the party - beautiful!
These lovely letters were created by the hostess' twin sister.  If you're interested in purchasing some custom letters, head over to her Etsy shop, Twin Pop Designs, here.
Love how this looks kind of like a fishnet stocking - very sexy! :)
cute toppers!

more of those custom letters - great decor!
A silent auction - very nice touch!

Now, wasn't that a great fundraiser??  Makes me want to host one!  I seriously can't get over that adorable bra art - so cute!  Hot pink and black are one of my favorite color combos!  Great job ladies on the fundraiser - I hope you were able to raise all the funds you needed and more!
