Sharing a few pics from my Christmas Pajama party I threw right before Thanksgiving break today!  I sat down with a few friends to discuss a date for my annual pj party in early November and our December weekends were already so busy that we decided to do it early.  It gave me a deadline for getting my house decorated which I loved because without a deadline I’ll just keep decorating right up until Dec. 24th.. ha. :)

The tables were set and candles were lit the afternoon of the party, but the rest of my house was a mess because my family had been home all morning.  I finally sent Kenny out the door with the kids two hours before the party because trying to get things clean with everyone living and eating in the house was proving to be a challenge.  I know you know what I mean. :)

I set up extra seating in our dining nook.  I love all of the red.  So festive!

I was also still doing some last minute wrapping right before the party.  Butter socks for everyone!  They are my favorite. :)

I wrote on all of the tags “Happy Holidays Cutie” as a little personal joke.  Some of my friends give me a hard time for calling everyone “cutie.”  They always say they love it, but they love to tease me about it!  Addison has always given me a hard time about it too.  She always says “mom.. it’s fine when you call my friends cutie, but when you call your friends cutie it’s just weird.”  Is it weird?  I don’t know.  I can’t help it!  It’s just what always comes out of my mouth!  Ha ha.  So “Happy Holidays Cutie” to everyone out there. ;)

Two of my friends came early to help with the party prep!  My friend Katy who is an amazing cook did all of the food.  She just took right over in my kitchen slicing and dicing while I was running around fluffing pillows, lighting candles and turning on Christmas lights and music.  (The really important stuff.. ha)

We were so excited to try our first Charcuterie board!  (I found inspiration in this favorite book.)  Katy did an amazing job pulling it all together.  I got this farmhouse serving board from Magnolia.  Some of the reviews made me a little nervous, but I couldn’t find anything else as long as I wanted.  It is really rough!  I had to wash and oil it before we used it, but I think after a lot of use it will smooth out.  I’ll link other boards I considered and also love below.  (Shorter, but smoother boards!)

Katy sent me a list of things she used so I’ll add that in case any of you want to try a board like this with some of the same things.  I’ve never heard of a few of the items, but it was all so delicious!  {Cheeses: aged roth cheddar black, gouda van kaas red, triple cream brie, humboldt fog goats milk cheese, manchebo sheeps milk cheese.  We also added fig jam, dried apricots, spanish marcona almonds, mini toasts, baby sour gherkins, roasted marinated greek olives, pitted marinated green olives stuffed with blue cheese, cheese bread straws, toscano salami, calabrese salami, thin sliced prosciutto, blackberries, green apple slices, and a french baguette!}

A few friends started arriving so I asked Kenny to take a quick picture of us with the spread before it disappeared!

Which didn’t take long. :)

My favorite thing about this party is that it’s so low key.  Good friends, good food, lots of time to chat and catch up.

And of course the fact that we’re all in comfy pj’s.  That’s my most favorite part of all. :)

Dinner was delicious too!

Chef Katy is in the black star pjs and I’m making her start a cooking blog!  She is so talented when it comes to food.  We make a good party planning team because I just want to decorate and organize all the details except the food.

We ate, we talked, we laughed, we decided we’re starting a book club, we shared holiday traditions, we laughed and talked and ate some more.  Love these sweet friends of mine.

And my sweet Kenny who was such a good blog husband and took both a horizontal and a vertical group picture.  He has been trained well and knows.  Having options is key. ;)

Christmas PJ Party (Sunny Side Up)My friends even all stayed to help clean up!  And to eat more cake.  We didn’t want the night to end.

Because Christmas pj parties are the best parties.  If you don’t believe me, host one!  You’ll see.

  1. Oh fun! You all looked great in your pjs and those appetizers looked delicious. So many things I’d never heard of. But then, I’m not very cultured. LOL Your tables looked amazing. You do well with your skill set and your friend with hers. You two should start up a blog on party foods and decorating! So happy for you to have been able to get together with all your cuties!

    1. I’m not very cultured either Jeanne! Kenny always laughs at me when we go to fancy dinners for his work. I’m like um.. what on this menu can I order and why can’t we just eat at Outback? Ha! It was a fun night for sure. I wish you lived closer and could join! Thanks cutie! ;)

  2. I love your blog always, Erin!! But this one is especially fun because I recognize all those beautiful faces at your party!!!
