Hi Friends, so these are some of the pictures from my son's birthday party. Most of the pictures were taken with cell phones and they are not of the best quality so, I apologize..:-). My home also needs some remodeling and re-decoration which I'm going to get to very soon so pardon me if you think my interior decor is old fashioned...:-).
So, this is the blouse I wore inside my jacket and like I said in my earlier post, I did not want to wear anything Christmassy or sparkly; I just wanted to wear something fun and colorful. I admit a jacket on denim or white on white is not the most fun outfit for a kid's party but hey, it's winter time okay? I needed the jacket for warmth and who says you can't wear white after labor day?...:-)
My outfit is similar to this collage I created on Polyvore (you can see my previous post here.) but I wish my pieces were the same high end designer stuff!
So, the outfit actually started like this; I wore this mint color camisole at first that I purchased from Marshals a long time ago but I did not like the fit and I felt it was more appropriate for a grown up event so I took it off but not before taking some pictures of it.
Then, I switched the blouse with this pleated version that I have also owned for a while. When I put my outfit together the day before, I made sure I had both blouses ready just in case one did not work out or incase there was a wardrobe malfunction. It's always good to have a back up plan when you are planning for an event.
I just had to throw in the sparkly heels for some holiday fun but the heels came off shortly after because I was not going to step on my little guests' feet with my four inch heels. We all know how little kids like to run around.
Jacket: Banana Republic: old
White denim: Express
Shoes: VS previously worn here
Blouse: T.J. Maxx: old
Yeah, I matched outfits with one of my friends that was around to celebrate with me; fun right? She was looking so radiant and beautiful. She had a baby in the first week of January this year; just days after I did so the next party is at her end...hehehe...:-). I'll show you my outfit for the party later. Yeah, I picked it out already.
So, that's it guys. I usually like to use balloons whenever I decorate for a kid's party because they can always play with the balloons later with adult supervision of course. Also, I hung some snowflakes decor from the ceiling and hung a scene setter feature wall with balloons attached to it. Of course the Christmas tree was decorated in a corner in another part of the living room and all the gifts have already been opened as I'm writing this post; a lot of goodies...:-). The food was also delicious and I'm so happy that most of my friends took time off from other activities on such a busy holiday to celebrate with me and my family. It was a fun Christmas now; we look forward to the new year.
Thanks so much for stopping by
