When brainstorming Christmas party ideas, I had the thought that it be an absolute DREAM to have a party in the middle of a Christmas tree farm! I quickly found that this was easier said than done here in our unpredictable East Tennessee weather. So instead, I brought the Christmas tree farm to the party! If you are a Target shopper like Melissa and myself, then you probably recognize several of these items from the seasonal dollar section – Those adorable little station wagons, the tiny Christmas trees, and even the precious wellies vases. That just goes to show that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to throw an adorable party!
Now, here are some quick tips to throwing your own Christmas party!
Have a dedicated Spot for Photos
Let’s be honest, if you get all dolled up for a holiday party then you are definitely going to want to take some pictures. So why not create a dedicated spot for your guests (and YOU) to take some adorable photos?! Not only does it serve as decoration, but also is so much fun for your guests to have memorable photos from the evening! If you really want to up the fun factor, throw in a few props such as mistletoe or a Santa beard!
To create our spot for photos I hung some garland around a beautiful window, creating the perfect frame for a photo! If your party is after dark, Christmas lights would be such a fun option as well!
