We then break and do a gift exchange, have dinner and then go back to crafting. The fun goes on until the last person is to tired to carry on and everyone goes home.
Each year is a different theme. This year was Paris.
Sandra has this darling little monkey she got from Build A Bear that she dresses up for every party and holiday. This outfit was so cute with the little pink poodle skirt.
The table is set for dinner. She always has a cute little gift for everyone at the place setting.
This year there was a cute little Pink Poodle, Eiffel Tower tissues, a pink pen, a little note pad that had everyone's initial on it, chocolates and I made white chocolate Eiffel Tower suckers for everyone.
impressive. I can't believe I didn't take pictures of all the food!
There were yummy red velvet cup cakes with cream cheese icing for dessert at lunch and then mini eclairs (which I again forgot to take photos of) for dinner.
Even the drink area was done up cute.
Her mantel is always themed too.
This is the area she had set up for all of us to craft at.
We all had our own station with a little trash can, a little scrapbook, and a pink case with embellishments to use. Plus candy to snack on.
She also supplies all the papers, brads, embellishments and ribbons for everyone to use.
She had punches to use, stickers, card kits...
Even journals to make. Everything you could possibly want or need was there to use.
These little cuties were sitting on the couch. Everywhere you looked it was decorated.
Even the bath room gets all decked out.
