We have just one episode left of The Real Housewives of Sydney before the reunion airs on May 14th. To celebrate the end of our first season - and to find the perfect excuse for a party - I thought I'd share a DIY RHOS Reunion Party with you.
So why not round up your friends, prepare some skinny bitches and settle in for a night of serious drama and shenanigans!
Make Your Own Skinny Bitches
I divided my party table into three sections; A DIY Skinny Bitch Cocktail Bar, Savoury Nibbles and Sweet Treats.
To make your Skinny Bitch Bar, all you need is;
- 1x Printable Skinny Bitch Cocktail Bar Sign
- Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice (put this in a jug or jar for easy pouring
- Fresh lime wedges
- Soda water
The Official Real Housewives of Sydney Skinny Bitch Recipe couldn't be simpler. Simply mix equal parts fresh lime juice and vodka and top with ice and soda water. A sprig of fresh mint adds some colour and an extra flavour punch - and is the perfect decorative addition to your skinny bitch bar.

I love dessert - and since I missed out on so many desserts during filming, why not have a mini dessert buffet at your RHOS viewing party?!
Choose Your Team - RHOS Cupcakes
These cupcakes are the perfect reunion treat. Simply make The O'Neil Family Cupcake Recipe (or your favourite cupcake recipe!) and add the Housewives Cupcake Toppers from the printable pack (download here).
I printed my cupcake toppers on cardboard which I then cut out and attached to toothpicks using some sticky tape (you could also use blu-tack or a hot glue gun). I used black and white polka dot cupcake wrappers, silver cachous and these gorgeous glitter heart cupcake toppers from Love Board to tie my theme together.
Also on the table were some gorgeous French Macarons (you can actually find these at Woolworths - no need for a fancy patisserie!) and some Profiteroles (also purchased from Woolworths - fill them with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for an extra special treat) - and don't forget the napkins! These black and white polka dot napkins were perfect for my theme - and only $2 a pack!
My party table was decorated with silver foil PARTY balloon garland ($5 at Kmart), and black silver and gold circle garlands ($3 each at Kmart). Don't worry if you don't have a white wall to use - I simply used white wrapping paper to create the "backdrop" for my set up.
You could also make my Coconut Bread Recipe which I served at the morning tea I had with Lisa and AthenaX on episode three!
Of course, it's always a good idea to include some savoury options too! I bought some blinis which I topped with creme fraiche (my secret is adding a little fresh lemon zest to your creme fraiche!), smoked salmon and fresh dill. Simple and oh so delicious!
Want to add some more savoury items? Why not add a Cheese Platter (here are my tips for How to Make the Perfect Cheese Platter) with some jatz crackers, try my Sweet and Spicy Roasted Nuts Recipe or make my Mini Sausage Rolls Recipe.
But what's a party without some fun games? I've put together some Printable Real Housewives of Sydney Bingo Cards so you can play along while you watch.
To play, simply cross off a square any time you hear or see what is on the square. For example, if someone says "Captain Eyebrows" cross it off - or if someone accuses someone of something and a flashback from the episode plays, cross off "Evidence".
The winner is the first one to cross off five squares in a row BINGO! tile is a free space! If you'd prefer to make your own cards, you can download a blank template here.
And because I love a good themed outfit, why not make your own Housewives Tee to show your support of your favourite Housewife? You can download all of the printables here (including the RHOS logo on it's own).
All you have to do is purchase some iron on transfer paper (you can find it at Spotlight or craft stores - or click to shop online below), print your chosen transfer and iron it onto your shirt! Now you're ready to party!
