From One Holiday to the Next

Did anyone else go out for a little day-after-Christmas shopping? I had to work, but I left around lunch time and headed to Target to check out what they had. Parking out in the boonies was an unfortunate side effect of going shopping on a day everyone else was too, but it was worth it. Walking is decent exercise. =) Everything in Target's Christmas section was 50% off so that was pretty nice and I was able to grab a few things.

Check out my spoils.

The disco ball ornament sets were $2.50 each and the felt tree ornaments were $0.50 per set. Not bad. I love a good sale price!

So with that taken care of, I was free to move on to the next holiday - New Year's Eve! Every year it's tradition for us to have a New Year's Eve party. When I was living at my mom's house we would have it at her place every year, but now that I have a house we host it here.

Last year we hosted a Mardi Gras themed murder mystery party.

It was a big hit and lots of fun so we are going to have another one this year! This time it will be 20s themed and with that in mind, here are the pieces that will somehow come together to be my costume. I'm really looking forward to Saturday!

What are your plans for New Year's Eve?

I literally picked up those same disco ball ornaments at Target yesterday! But I got scared and put them back... too hard for me to plan next year's decor this far in advance : ) Happy New Year to you, Morgan!

Love the super fun ornaments and fun New Years/Mardi Gras decor. I went to the party store looking for the same yesterday.
I read a couple of other posts (A CANON REBEL!?) No way, that is such an awesome gift.
I love the Christmas Tree photos, it's gorgeous.

Great Target bargains. You were very brave to attempt shopping there right after the holidays.

I love the idea of a murder mystery party. Love your themes.

We did make it out to Target and Walmart on Monday and picked up tags and paper for next year. We also bought my oldest another tree--had to get rid of hers this year.
I love those disco ball ornaments!

Your NYEve party sounds like it will be a blast!!! Have fun!

I'm staying in and ordering Chinese food with the family.
