Party Over Here!!!!

Alright I know you get tired of seeing my little party room downstairs but, the savings club that I'm in, is hosting a Christmas party this Saturday at my house. I have been busy getting it decorated and I just wanted to share what I've been up to.

I found these little chain link metallic garlands at The Dollar Store. I thought they would be perfect as a backdrop to the Karaoke stage. I hung them about 4 inches apart. The club members have put together a show for our quest. It will be a lot of fun, one of our members will be doing an act as a comedian. I will be one of the singers. Through out the night any one who likes can perform a song or whatever.

I use an assortment of colors, gold, silver, red and green.

I already had the sequin bows and just use them as I could because I only had 4. This is a close-up of the chains. They kind of have a 70's vibe.

The table decorations are from The Dollar Store also. The silver ones I just added red metallic paper around the base for extra color.

These are views from the stage to the stairs

I tried not to over do it, I just wanted splashes of red here and there

There will be 33 people in all. This large table will have 33 gifts stacked down the center as a centerpiece, that we will be using to play the Dirty Santa game. That way each of our guest will leave with a gift (or a gag).

I had my husband hang these coat racks that I got at Lowes, so I wouldn't have to go upstairs to hang coats every time a quest arrived.


In the adjoining room is where the food will be served, I hung Christmas lights over the table and some of the chain garland that I had left. I hung the lights with hooks that I found at Lowes. I used these same hooks to hang the chains on the stage.

Close-up of the lights

The things you see on the table are only there for the picture. We hired a Caterer and she will be bringing the food in her own dishes and picking them up after the party. I can't wait to see how she sets up and I will take pictures when she's done. She will pick up her things after the party. This is a BYOB affair, but we will have chasers for the ones that need them, and the punch will be a non-alcoholic drink.

We didn't order punch from the caterer so I will be making it. I used my cake plate under the bowl and used the greenery to hide the surround.

The plates you see stacked look that way because I'm using two plates together for a set, I just think it looks prettier that way. We are responsible for the plates, forks and such.

This is what it looks like.

There is also room in there for dancing. You can't really tell by the pictures.

My mini kitchen, it has a sink, refrigerator, and microwave. The restroom is beyond that. I'm going to be very busy in the days to come, I have to get my hair done and pick up a few items, do a few girl things. Our party is semi-formal. I hope to share a few pictures with you. I'll be the lady in RED!

Hi Deb, I heard about your party, so I wanted to come over and look. Wow, you have a great lay out there for entertaining. It must be a lot of fun to have that much room to party. And it is decorated so beautifully. I'm going to add you to my blog list, cause I don't want to miss this.

Hey Girl, What fun you will be having! I just love your basement party room. I wish we had one. We do most of our entertaining out in our garage. We have a wood burner and air conditioning. You have decorated so nice. I just love the double plates.
Thanks for stopping by and for the tip about posting. That will come in handy since that wasn't the first time I screwed up!
Have a great weekend.

Deb, I noticed you had commented on Kady's post (Life on Bonnie Lane). Her son has posted an update asking for b'day wishes for his mother, and since nobody had left a message yet, I was just trying to contact some of her readers. laurie
