White Elephant Christmas Party!

One often wonders what an event planner does during the Holiday's when they have a weekend off from events? While some might think it's a good reason to rest, we feel it's an opportunity to plan a party for our friends and family! Each year I host a White Elephant Christmas Party and every year it seems the gifts, food and laughter multiply! 
As guests arrived we asked them to note why they have been Naughty or Nice? Later on in the evening we read some of the most humorous, which gave us a bit of a chuckle!
A holiday themed appetizer competition brought out the competitiveness in all of us! Grinch guacamole, cheese molded into a Snowman and a Christmas tree; a crescent roll inspired Christmas tree; chocolate stout home brew disguised as reindeer; a Christmas tree featuring cracker presents that were wrapped with celery "ribbon;" white chocolate Santa hat pretzels; a Christmas tree pizza and candy cane marshmallows with hot chocolate! 
This year's White Elephant theme asked guests to bring "a gift to keep you entertained while you are trapped at home with the relatives." Gifts included a liter of booze, ear muffs to drown out the noise and a festive holiday sweater to name a few! 
We wish you a very Merry Christmas and hope you had fun celebrating the season!
