Joyeux Noel: A Christmas Party

12.09.2010

Shirley Temple?
Yes, please.
2009
2010 
Every year "The Men of AAA" 
(Marcus's old roommates throw a "Classy-Themed Christmas Party."
Everyone gets out their best duds, practices their waltz and comes to out to party with the best company the Western United States has to offer. 

Last year I was honored to be involved in the planning.
Well, I happen to LOVE mocktails (alcohol-free mixed drinks), so I threw out the idea, and they loved it. 
This year they called us up and asked if we would 'tend for the night, and of course we consented. 
We had such a fun time stirring up Mint Mojitos, Roy Rogers, Fuzzy Belly Buttons, Peppermint Egg Nog, and of course the Rudolf of mocktails, the Shirley Temple
Clearly, everyone had a fantastic time.

Are You Going To Any Themed Parties This Holiday Season?
Tell Me About Them!

I have never been to a dressy Christmas party! It makes me so sad! In fact, I have never been to a mocktail party. I must change this. Or throw one.

I die over your skirt. Die.

I just love that you're in rexburg! I miss it too much. Your man's ex-roommates look familiar, i've pretty sure i've seen the lot of them on campus before!
a mocktail is THE cutest idea, rock on.

No themed parties unfortunately :(
Lots of people have birthdays in my family this month, including my grandpa on the 24th and dad on the 26th, so it seems like whenever I am going to a party it's a BIRTHDAY party!

You two looks like models in the 4th picture. Yes, very modelesque

Hi, you don't know me, but I think your style is great. I'm headed to a "Christmas sweater" party tomorrow night. Won't be as, uh, "classy" as what yours was, but I'll be posting photos this weekend on my blog (http://adayinlifetoo.blogspot.com). Check it out if you're so inclined!

You look absolutely lovely! Just like a modern day version of Breakfast at Tiffany's...might have to throw a get-together this season just so I can pull off that look! P.S. I {heart} your tights.

Thank you thank you!!
Sorry Desorden, he has a girlfriend!
Jamie aka bloggirl--i was cracking up that you told me your word verification, because the last few days I've been getting the weirdest words and i'm always tempted to tell the people, but then i realize they probably won't be as entertained by it as i was. we should be sisters. love you.
Molly-I'll post recipes asap! they're really easy.
