Santa Baby. . .

Last night a group of fun gals called the “Le Potpourri” club joined together for their annual Christmas party.

The month before the committee gave us all a darling Santa hat with this tag attached.

To decorate mine I used three things that I love, old sheet music, birds, and polka dots. Here’s what I came up with.

As each person arrived their hat was such a delight.  It was so fun to see how creative they were.

Diana’s was ever so ‘SWEET’!

Ann’s sported a darling coffee filter flower.  Peggy’s hat could be switched from Naughty to Nice.  She told us that was how she signaled her hubby as to what mood she was in. lol!

Susan had a fabulous ‘tree’ thing going on.

Juanita’s was a tribute to Raggedy Ann & Andy and America.  She said that she never had, but always wanted a set of those raggedy dolls as a child.

Betty’s was adorned with glittery snowflakes.  Amanda’s had a vintage Santa and jingle bells.  You could hear her a comin!

Dawn showed us her talent with her stitching of “HO” “HO” “HO”!  Here she’s just a “HO”.  Did I say that?  Naughty, Naughty!  Peggy, I need to borrow your hat.

Roylene and Kathy had the cutest ornament baubles on theirs!

Pat with snowflakes and Mary Lynn with bows.  Mary Lynn’s 12 year old granddaughter decorated hers.  Didn’t she do a good job?

My sister, Jeanne did the red/turquoise thing, which I love!  There was a darling bird on top. It’s hard to see in the pic.

Beth had such a cute idea of poor Santa being stuck in the chimney.

Here I am with my bow so big you can’t see anything else.

I saved this hat for last.  It’s a bit R-rated.  Connie decorated hers with black panties and other things (that come in small packages) which I won’t mention.  This was so unlike her that she gave us all quite a shock.  Have to admit, it was fun seeing the ‘Naughty’ side of her.  Notice that she didn’t show her face?

Sure hope that we did Santa Baby proud with the decorating of our hats.

The committee served us a delicious dinner. And the dessert table was, WOW”

I’ll leave you with a few pics of the wonderful dessert spread.

Looks like you guys had a blast, and I would have had a blast with all those yummy goodies. Love the hats.

Oh what fun! LOL. Lots of yummies....I think it's always a blast with special friends.
I think taking the photo on the stairs is a great place. The hats are awesome.
