Christmas Past

Last year, my sister and I were tasked with throwing the annual Christmas party for our church.  Usually the annual Christmas party is an affair decked in gold pillars and plastic tablecloths.  We decided to diverge from tradition and go for a more homey and warm Christmas feel.  There were certainly eyebrows raised when we ordered brown tablecloths for the party, but I think everything came together very nicely.

The trick to throwing this type of affair is to accommodate a tiny budget with a huge space to decorate.  We decided to spend the bulk of the budget on tablecloths and wreaths.  We used this tutorial from Martha Stewart to create maximum visual impact at very little cost.  We also strung icicle Christmas lights from the ceiling, which created enough light that we didn’t have to have any other lights on…which really helped to set the mood.  Unfortunately, we never found a good solution for covering up the awful chairs.


Here’s another party in the same space
