Do you have a friend who has a kegging set up they could loan you? Force carb then either bottle from the keg, or take the keg to the party.

You don't mention gravity readings. How did you know your beer was anywhere near ready to rack (and add finings too!) if you don't check the gravity? Plus, if you restart fermentation in the peach...
