January Blues Party…

Looking to chase away the January Blues?
A January Blues Party is a perfect little event to host to lift spirits in  a month of long, cold gray days.
I don’t know about you, but January seems so long and many days are too cold to want to venture out anywhere.
Getting together with some girlfriends to chat & laugh is the best way I know to put some happiness into an otherwise bleak month.
I love my girlfriends!
 I put together this January Blues Party with white dishes and anything blue I could find, but really any theme would be just as fun!
{I think a Mexican dinner would be super dandy!}
I also added some sweet little yellow daffodils to play with the blues.
{Plus, they were $1.99 a bundle at the grocery store!} 
 I chose to use some grocery store desserts for this party..mini.cupcakes and mini powdered donuts.
And the lovely straws come from Greenmuch….my fav place for party supplies. 
And I made the sparkly tree globe with a mason jar, a sparkly white tree Christmas decoration, Epsom salts and some hot glue.
A pretty tablescape is always a nice treat.
 The menu was a homemade soup, salad & rolls. 
How about you?
Have you gotten together with girlfriends lately? 
 What are some of the things you do to chase away the January Blues?
I like nice hot baths, cozy socks and a TV series on DVD.
Lately I have been watching Vampire Diaries….which I blogger friend brought to my attention and lucky for me….3 seasons were already on my daughter’s bookshelf!

    Angie I wish you lived in Calgary! We would soo be bff's! What a fun idea for a "party". I may have to host one myself.

    Happy to hear you're watching Vampire Diaries! Are you loving it? I've watched the latest episode of season 4 three times since it aired Thursday night. I can't get enough, it's sooo good!

    Hope you're getting some sunshine up North! We have some today, but it's chilly. Have a great day and fantastic week! =)

    Can I come, Angie?? I could really use the "pep-up" during these freezing temperatures!! By the way, those daffodils sure lift the spirit–spring is coming…eventually!!

    A January Blues party is the perfect way to shake the winter blues! I haven't had a "girlfriends" party in a long time. This idea is wonderful. I love your blue tablescape. It's so beautiful and cheery. I hope you had a lovely time!
    It's freezing here today. I'm ready for spring! : )

    The dishes are the most gorgeous blue I've ever seen! And the food looks yummy. I made a commitment this year to have lunch at least monthly with different girlfriends. So far I've had lunch three different friends – it's such a treasure in these cold months! Glad your party was so delightful.
