As I was browsing ideas for our Christmas party, I came across a blogger who stated that ugly sweater parties were "so last year." I don't know about you, but I'd enjoy one every year! ;) Maybe next year we'll have a pretty sweater contest and encourage our guests to don their best duds. And then again, maybe not! :) Anyhoo, we had a blast at the Christmas party we hosted for our couples Sunday school class. Food, games, laughter, tacky sweaters...yep, doesn't get much better than that!
I put together a simple, easy, and inexpensive dessert table for under $20. I used leftover wrapping paper and ribbon to transform my Ikea picture frames into oversize gifts. :) The rest of the Christmas decor was purchased at Target and Walmart.
We had gingerbread men, Oreo cookie balls, and turtles. :)
We also had vanilla flavored cotton candy...I'm a child at heart! ;)
Candy canes and coal for all the men...I mean, the naughty guests. ;)
Thankfully, we didn't have too many leftovers since I have absolutely no self control when it comes to sweets! :)
Here are some of the sweet ladies from our class! I'm so thankful for each and every one of them. :)
And, finally, here's a pic of the hubby and me! I had to get one of Josh in this shirt because I'm pretty sure it's a sight I will never see again. ;) I still think he looks handsome. It must be love! :) We had a great time and are looking forward to our next get together! Super Bowl XLVII! Maybe we'll have an ugly jersey contest. I'm not naming any names! ;)
Now it's on to New Year's Eve! Ours will most likely consist of watching the ball drop from the sofa and throwing homemade confetti. :) What about you guys? Anyone have any plans that are more classy and fabulous than mine? Doubtful, I know! ;)
