A “Tacky” shower and dinner honored engaged couple Leslie Kearns and Jason Yarbrough.
Hostesses have been friends for many years and they call themselves the “Tacky Yackies.” Leslie Kearns’ mother is a member. They are Linda Garrett, Joanie Holmboe, Mary Sims, Suzanne Leggett, Penny Park, Jana Reynolds and Patsy Hunzicker Homsey. Assisting them were Kingsley Holmboe Burke, Peggy Duncan and Burke Duncan Beck.
The group of women have met through the years (not regularly) for dinner and about 15 years ago were at The Tack Room and stayed until closing time. Two of them were talking and got locked in the building. After they set off the alarm and the police and owners arrived, they continued their conversations at the nearest home….thus the “Tacky Yackies” (the Tack Room was where it began and ‘Yacking’ was the catalyst).
One of the members of the group noted: “we just hope the future bride does not burst into tears when she arrives.” (Editor’s note: The bride did not cry….it was a great and fun and loving party!)
For this party, the invitations were created out of yellow and pink construction paper. It stated that the attire would be “Tacky, of course” (bling, grunge, glitz, Goth, or Daisy Duke Trailer Park.) “The tackier the better.”
The invitation further stated: “The only thing NOT tacky about this party will be their presents.”
On the subject of RSVP….”Nah-Just Come!”
Card Tables were set up in the front yard with a plastic baby pool and trailer in the driveway for drinks. Canned bean dip and bags of Fritos and cheetos were centerpieces. In lieu of bistro tables, ironing boards were set up.
