Christmas Party under $100!

Hello Festive people!

*to skip all of the words, scroll below to watch the vlog!

My family takes Christmas celebrations veeery seriously! As in, a Full month of festivities, food, some fighting… you know, normal family holiday stuff 😂 My friends where I live however, could never plug in a light and be content. images<

So, I took it upon myself to become the office Party Planning Committee! Yay! I had a $100 budget which I actually stayed under. That could have not been done without the help of my friends bringing food. $50 of my budget went to food, and $47 went to decor. The Only way I was able to stay under budget with the decor was taking advantage of Joann Fabrics 60% off sale of all holiday decor. It’s a pretty safe bet that from now to Christmas you will see that sale. On top of the discounted prices I also receive their text coupons. They sent out a 20% off your total purchase coupon, Sale Items Included!

We had no Christmas tree, and I ran out of money so I made one out of a c stand. You can basically make a tree shape yourself out of anything tall! DSC00801.JPG<<<<
he table cloth was just 2-1/2 yards of green felt, topped with festive paper plates, melt in your mouth candy canes, cinnamon scented pine cones, and various scattered woodland items. DSC00817.JPGDSC00811.JPGDSC00805.JPGDSC00810.JPGDSC00821 2.JPG<<<<
he food items I purchased (and surprisingly cooked) included the Turkey, a gluten free pumpkin pie, a regular pumpkin pie, and 2 different types of cool whip. My friends Thankfully brought the sides which were salad, mini bbq sausages, potatoes, and the BEST sweet potatoes I have ever had In. My. Life. DSC00845.JPGDSC00843.JPGDSC00863.JPGDSC00841.JPGMy outfit was (of course) oh so extra! I didn’t own anything that matched my standards of Christmas Crazy so I Haaad to make it. As per my usual “throw an outfit together” standards, most of it was stapled together ha!
