She is having us all over to her house on Friday and we (the co-workers) want to turn it into a surprise wedding reception. But I haven't the slightest idea how to do that! One co-worker is making a cake. I'm in charge of everything else. Other than downloading the Chicken Dance to my iPod.... what else? Some champagne for a toast, of course. But what else would make this festive and fun?
Oddly enough, I used to be an event planner. But it was corporate, not weddings. I know the creative minds of SI can help. Please

Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
It will be a small group (12 people), indoors and also on a patio. Late afternoon. Everyone is bringing a dish to pass and the hosts are cooking the main course. They just recently bought this house, so this is sort of a house warming also.
Dollar stores are great for serving platters. I’d tell everyone to plate their own food and bring a disposable serving utensil as well. Bring some “nice” plastic serving ware, you know the faux silverware and faux china. Maybe a couple table cloths and ribbons to tie around the legs, but see how they have everything set up before you pull these out, they might not be necessary
Since it also a housewarming, maybe some nice potted plants for decorations. If you bring candles, bring matches, don’t assume they will have anything. Gifts, music, a portable speaker if you have one. That should be plenty.
