grinchy good time

grinch-stole-christmas-party-ideas

My dad’s favorite Christmas special of all time is The Grinch That Stole Christmas (you know, the old 30 minute animated one). When we were kids I believe he had more fun stomping around pretending that he didn’t like Christmas (and giggling each time we got grumpy with him about it) than he did eating Santa’s Reece’s cups. And if you knew my dad, you would know that is really saying something! {wink}

Anyway, in honor of my dad and all those wonderful Christmas memories, here’s a little Grinch Christmas party inspiration that I gathered up for my Christmas cookie decorating party next year… oh, yeah… I’ve already got plans!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
