Hi everyone! Hope your Christmas shopping is going well - I just wanted to jump on here and tell you a little about a fun Christmas party my husband and I went to. It was a Whoville Christmas Party... Now, when I heard the theme for this party, I knew I had to do something! This kind of thing does not come around very often. So, I got to work...
The sweater is from Goodwill and the skirt is from the Salvation Army. Both were a cream color when I bought them. I dyed both of them green - and starched the skirt (I might have ruined my iron 😏). I also hung small ornaments from my skirt. There were also a few in my hair!
I did not do my own hair and makeup! That was done by a good friend of mine, Janine. She does a fabulous job! If you live near the Buffalo area in Minnesota, look her up at Salon 606 - She does hair, nails and makeup.
Janine also did my husbands hair and "makeup"😄! He was such a trooper, he decided to grow his hair out for the occasion. Right after our son was in bed - He had me shave it off! He actually shaved his facial hair off as well. He made a great Mayor of Whoville!!!
The party was for the Marriage Matters Group at our church. It was a really fun night! It did, however, take more time for us to get ready for the party, than the party lasted 😊.
This is a shot of us after we got home. See how tired he looks?! 😫
Yes, I am the one who wants to take all the pictures - He was kind enough to oblige me 😃.
I also promised my son that he could have the little bulbs off my skirt when we got home... Here he is, doing just that!
Oh! Here is the dessert I made for the party. It was supposed to be an appetizer, but I don't do appetizers, I do desserts!
I had to show you some sort of paper craft! 😉 The sign, is so people knew what it was. When you go to a pot-luck and you don't know what something is...who wants to chance it? Not me!
I made the candies and candy cane with my Cricut Explore and Design Space with the Simply Charmed and Christmas Cheer cartridges.
Hope you enjoyed it! Have a very blessed Christmas!!!
Remember: God loves you & Jesus is Lord!
