The theme of this party was a twist off of the Naked Lady Party. What's a Naked Lady Party? Yeah, my friends asked me that too. It's where friends bring over clothes, bags, shoes etc they no longer want to wear but are still in good condition. All the items are placed on a table or on racks and the guests go through the items and take home new to them items that they like.
Instead of everyday clothes to swap like at a Naked Lady Party, friends were told to bring holiday clothes, socks, jewelry etc. My friends loved the idea and I know all my friends who couldn't make it are going to be bummed they couldn't come.
Keeping with the invitations Santa breakfast theme I held this party at the brunching hour, 11:30 a.m. and served up a crustless mushroom spinach quiche, baby croissants, turkey bacon and cranberry juice and egg nog. I love brunch parties because everyone loves breakfast foods and guests still have most of the day to get errands, housework etc done. Plus serving brunch keeps cost down. Breakfast foods are less expensive then lunch or dinner. I spent $30 on food, including candy.
Holiday photo prop head bands were very popular as was jewelry.
Holiday socks were a big hit too. Everyone went home with new to them socks because they were the most item brought.
Going through all the clothes that were brought and trying them on calls for snacks. Luckily Santa brought some. Store bought holiday candy is cheap. Again, saving you money.
We were having so much fun going through all the clothes we almost forgot to take some photos. Here's a party tip that will save you money and is so easy to do. For a photo backdrop I like to use wrapping paper. Yes, wrapping paper. It's inexpensive, easy to put up and can match any party theme. If I didn't tell you you'd probably never know that was wrapping paper we were standing in front of. I spent $3 for a roll that I used for the backdrop and on the table.
