Fancy Frugal Life: A fancy frugal Christmas party

A fancy frugal Christmas party

The first weekend in December we hosted my husband's work team and their families for a big Christmas dinner party at our home. 
Photo: Hosted a big holiday dinner party for J's work ppl and their families..It was a success! We r wiped though.

This is why my Christmas was up pretty early this year :) Take the tour here if you haven't already.
 My husband's company supplied a beautiful ham from the Honey Baked Ham Co, and I made the side dishes. Co workers brought some appetizers to share. 
Someone also brought some yummy punch that my kids loved!


I made some goodies that day that have already been featured on my blog you may recognize.

The box cake lemon cookies can be found here.

And the recipe for my grandma's easy mini blackberry tarts with pie crusts are here.

I had a craft area set up for the kids that was really a hit.





They made some paper plate and cotton ball Santa faces.
We also did a gift exchange for the kids. I picked up this super cute Velveteen rabbit and book at Kohl's for $5 each. Have you seen those? It's so soft.
My daughter and I did our Santa nails that day....


We all drank and ate way too much! Including these two :)

 These party poopers passed out!


We had such a great party with some really fun people. I thought it was nice and more personal than going out to a restaurant, however if they want to do a restaurant next year, I'm in! lol 

 Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Looks like a fantastic time! Love the idea of having a craft table for the kids. Bet that was a great way to keep them occupied! Your tree is absolutely beautiful, by the way!

Merry Christmas!
