Okay so obviously this wasn’t my first Christmas party but it IS the first one I hosted in this house. So I had a little extra motivation when it came to decorating. I was on a budget so thankfully I found a bunch of Christmas sales and made do with things I already had. D is a firm believer in real Christmas trees so we had a little family outing earlier this month. The theme for the party was “sparkly” so I was excited to find some sparkly pillows to match :). The dress code was wear something sparkly too and luckily I had bought this last month. Various appetizers and desserts were on the menu including avocado brushetta and apple brie croissants. We also did a “my favorite things” gift exchange and all ended up with some really fun things. Have I mentioned I LOVE Christmas?!?
