99. host a party

Through hosting a home group for a church this semester, we also had the opportunity to host two parties!  For both we tried to keep them as simple as possible: we asked everyone to bring an appetizer or dessert, we provided coffee and s’mores, and we instructed people on what to wear {since both parties had “themes”}.  Easy-peazy for the host and hostess:)

The first party in October was Halloween party. We asked everyone to dress up in a famous duo/couple costume.  We had lego people, Johnny and June Cash, Jack and Jill, Struck by Lighting, Richard Simmons and his project, Popeye and Olive Oil, Mickey and Minnie, and even The Bachelor and a contestant!  Everyone was so creative!

Gary and I were Richard Simmons and his project.  Seriously, I wish you all could have experienced G staying in character all night.  Hysterical.  Richard Simmons and his project | Atwell Adventures

The second party was a “Ugly Sweater” party and the sequins, embroidery, and turtlenecks were in full force.  Ugly Christmas Sweater Group | Atwell Adventures We played a few Christmas themed games and also had a “photo booth” {aka wrapping paper from the Dollar Tree to make a photo booth backdrop. Olan Mills, anyone?}

I love, love, love hosting in our home and am thankful to have a husband that enjoys it as much as I do!
