We DO love Whedon! With his witty dialog and strong female characters, it’s hard not to appreciate his entire filmography. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is favorite of the officers; Bonnie and Drea, and it was the main reason for this months theme.
Rather than using a restaurant as our location, we utilized our GGB officer Drea’s place of business, a school library. A library was especially relevant since in the show, Buffy is constantly in the library seeking help from her Watcher, Giles. To pull on the nostalgia strings, there was a school book fair going on as well, much to our Brunchettes delight! Our lovely Brunchettes participated had a potluck with lots of goodies and an enormous amount of chocolate…no one complained!
“Don’t be ridiculous. Martha Stewart isn’t a demon. She’s a witch. Nobody could do that much decoupage without calling on the powers of darkness.”-Anya from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
We spent a good portion of our time together working with Perler Beads. Our crafty ladies made many geeky creations: Jack Skellington, Deadpool, Link, Jayne, and many more! It was fun to see all the different characters they made.
Throughout the evening, we were streaming various episodes and clips from Whedon’s work. The highlight was definitely our Once More, With Feeling(OMWF) sing-a-long! OMWF is a popular episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer that is a musical. The songs are hilarious and fun to sing to.
Smash Up is an extremely popular card game and it was introduced to many of our Brunchettes at this event. For those who have never played it is competitive, fast pased, and nerdy! If you love board games and haven’t played Smash Up, check it out
A fun evening with a great group of people! Cheers ladies to another swell time!
