  • "I had no idea this was the plan," she tells CafeMom. "I went into my storage room and dug my dress out."

    "I felt so happy. I felt loved," she said.

    It ended up lifting up more than just Niesner. Eoanna Tatoulis, one of Niesner's best friends and the one who took the photos, had also been going through her own separation. "The party was amazing," she tells CafeMom. "I came there upset and crying from everything in my life, but by the end of the night we were all laughing and smiling -- it was amazing! I knew we would both be alright in life."

  • The hope is that Niesner's divorce party will empower other people who are going through similar splits to keep a positive outlook.

    "We are showing people that we can all still remain positive and not to focus on the negative that divorce can bring," Tatoulis continues to CafeMom. "We are empowering people with positivity and the value of strong friendships."

  • Let's give it up for the power of friendship!
