Thanks to all the folks that helped me plan my kitschy Christmas dinner party. It all went down last night, and went well too!

Shiny green tablecloth + plastic dishware + pointsettia napkins + a big batting snowman that I bought from a White Elephant Sale at a church bazaar:

Kitsch-ified the corner cabinet a bit with a vintage cloth and a sparkly star

Added glitz to the wall art with tinsel that I bought at the thrift store. The cool part was, it was still in packaging that clearly marked it as being from some time in the 70's.

The guests really enjoyed reading "Magic with Tin Cans" (and I'm tempted to try something from it - so involved, and actually beautiful!). I got all of these magazines at church bazaars as well.

Number 1 of 2 Knit snowmen, another church bazaar find:

And number 2:

Even Puddin' Pie got into her best Christmas attire:

And of the guests that matched the theme, obviously myself and the bf:

... and my sister and her bf got festive as well:

I played a mix of classic Christmas songs, most sung by crooners and the old jazz standards - nothing from later than the 70's, if even that. My "signature drink" of the evening was a hot mulled wine. It was a potluck for food, but I followed the theme with a jello mold in the shape of Santa for dessert (as well as lasagna), and my sister did too with mashed sweet potatoes and marshmallow. Yum yum!

Your BF must REALLY love you. I don't think I could get my husband to wear a candy cane sweater.  Wink
I'm sure it was in the spirit of the party. Glad you had fun. Yeah, the tin can crafting book does look interesting.

My ultimate gifts to receive: Thread and Glue Sticks!
