Calling all rednecks!

I'm going to a redneck Christmas party tomorrow and I need help coming up with a redneckified veggie or fruit to bring. Needs to still taste good, but look redneck if at all possible. I'm also bringing Mississippi Sin Dip and several of the other girls are bringing redneck stuff. We decided we needed something healthier (veggie/fruit) in addition. So. Needs to taste good, but be goofy. I was thinking maybe green beans with toothpicks stuck in them (like h'orderves!) but that may just be stupid and not redneck!

Any good ideas for costumes? I have mullet wigs for both DH and I as a start. I'm thinking I will either go the route of wearing a bathrobe and put curlers in the mullet, bear can between the boobs... OR go the opposite route and dress like a dude... wifebeater, flannel shirt with arms cut off, drawn a beard on with eyeliner... I could go either route! Any other ideas?? You'd think that being from Texas would qualify me as an expert on rednecks, but I feel guilty just dressing like my cousins... ;) No, seriously!

In Christ alone my hope is found. He is my LIGHT, my STRENGTH, and my SONG!

Re: Calling all rednecks!

  • LOL I think any veggie with a toothpick in it would be hilarious!  Maybe instead of a redneck veggie you could think of a redneck way to serve the veggies?

    You're going to have to PIP this party!

    Haha! Those are both awesome! I wonder if I could find twinkies to even do the pie with them closing down? The sushi is hilarious... so great. I'm going to go search Pinterest now :)

  • We had redneck lounge days while I was in college.  My fave was a bra (usually a bright colored one) and overalls.  No shirt.  You could do a sports bra if that makes you more comfortable too.  I'm not sure I could wear just a bra to a party, our was more a few close friends being silly.

    Lol.. that's funny.. I couldn't do it because A) it's our church group and B) I don't think I could wear just a bra anyway lol

    I did find this though, I might attempt this and put salad or green beans in it

  • Watch "my name is Earl" or "Raising Hope" and copy everything they do ;)

    what about a vodka watermelon? I think you cut a hole in a watermelon and poor vodka in it and let it simmer!

    I'm from Texas too! Us Texans gotta stick together. Sometimes I wish I could be redneck/white trash until I see my ex SIL and realize I'm grateful I'm not...
