Holiday Party!

Since no one's company seems to be throwing holiday parties this year due to the bad economy, Liz and I decided to throw one of our own at The Dove Parlour in the West Village Saturday night.

To make it extra fun, I made up little gift bags for each attendee - stuffed with silly toys and candy you might remember as a kid.

The dress code was swanky - but I decided to add a festive Santa hat just for fun. Here's my "before" pictures, in front of our lovely Christmas tree! As you can see from photo #2, Molly got a holiday haircut earlier in the day. She still doesn't love the santa hat though.

Liz did a cool menswear kind of thing. And Elizabeth wore this amazing vintage Betsy Johnson dress.

After scouring the menu, Stacey and Leanna decided on hot mulled wine. Perfect for a cold, snowy winter's night!

I was very happy to have my friend Jamie stop by! She's a dear old friend I met when I used to live in San Diego.

The talk went far into the night. And while I swear everyone got along just fine, for some reason, everytime we took a candid photo, someone ended up looking kind of mad or surprised.

The gift bags were a great hit. And soon our table was full of toys.

This demonic snowman - inside one of the gift bags, got a lot of attention.

All in all, a fun time was had by all! Happy Holidays everyone!
