Each year I host a Girlfriend Charity Christmas Party at my home on the first Friday of December. I have been doing this for several years.
Every year each girl brings a beautiful gift to exchange that some or all of the proceeds from buying this gift benefit their favorite charity.
It always touches my heart to see the beautiful gifts that everyone comes up with for the gift exchange.
Each girl will be able to talk about the gift they bring for the exchange and why the benefiting charity is important to them. The stories are heart warming.
We gather at my home and I usually have a theme for the party. Last year's theme was Tequila and Tiara's. We all wore Tiara's and had yummy Margarita's. Anyway you get the idea about the theme!!!
This year is a Let's Whine (wine) that this is probably the last Girlfriend party in this home! (Since my home is up for sale.)
All my favors and prizes are wine themed.
Each girl wears their favorite Christmas jammies. We all know it is more comfy to drink and eat in your jammies. We really have a wonderful group that gathers each year to celebrate our love and friendships for each other.
|This is my dining room table from the other day. I started with all the stuff I needed to make up favors and prizes for the party.|
|I found these cute magnet Christmas lists at Michaels in the dollar bins. Just adorable.|
|I added some Hershey's kisses and a red pen. An instant favor for less than $2 for each girl.|
|Michael's also had the sweetest note cards in the bins too.|
|Look at these cute wine gift bags they had in the bins too. They had several different designs one cuter than the next.|
|Just wanted you to see my design assistant Libby is on break in the upper left corner. Apparently her union contract states if the sun is streaming in the french doors she gets to sun herself. She needed to nap while I was doing all the work!!!!!|
|Cute straws for our drinks in all different designs like the bags.|
|Loved this cheetah pattern. Too cute!|
|Each wine purse comes with an insulated interior so this could be a multi tasking purse. Maybe even used as a cute lunch tote!|
|Inside the zipper compartment each purse comes with a wine opener.|
|The art work used on the tote was done by a young girl (Kate 6 yrs. old) that is undergoing cancer treatments.|
