Firstly for our Road Xmas Party, I tried my hardest to come up with a very tame theme, that young and old, keen and not-so-keen would all be (hopefully) willing to go along with. I came up with Bows and Bow Ties....and for those that had already suggested they weren't keen to play along...I took the liberty of making their bows and bow ties...for the most grumbly or hard to convince to wear a tie, I pulled apart an angel earring that flashed (actually my little 1yr old, ripped the head off her and it was the perfect back piece for the flashing bowtie for the biggest "dummyspitter", fortunately there were none, but the tie got heaps of use and looking very becoming on the country gentlemen.
The tiny Xmas tree was an opshop find as well as the angel.
I made the baby blue and white spot tissue poms and the rainbow pom from leftover tissue paper.
I created a bunch of paper decorations above the Christmas tree, this snowflake...
this feather wreath with leftover supplies.....
The outdoor table centrepiece for me were these old plastic lampshades from the house glued onto a broken base off a crystal jar, and two wine glasses of different shapes, that were 20c each....They are three different heights which adds some nice dimension and this year our theme was pastel blue green and pink, which looked so pretty!
Everyone wants to be Santa
Again those dear sweet friends hamming it up!!!
And my sweetie and I
