Pinned It Made It Monday Week 50

Anyone notice that I have been way off on my weeks? I went to post this and it would have appeared to be week 47. I knew that wasn't right since we are almost to the end of the year and I went back and really goofed up with some weeks being repeated. Got it all straightened out now. Ü

Last week a friend and I hosted a "Frozen" party for several ladies in Comstock. It was so much fun! I created these invitations with the inspiration coming from THIS pin. In the invitation we challenged the ladies to make a treat to share that was "Frozen" related in food or color. For example they could have brought carrots to represent Olaf's nose and dip: snow. The color theme was white, silver, purple and blue to match the dresses in this free printable that I also found on Pinterest. You find my Frozen Pinterest Board HERE if you would like to host a party and need ideas.

To make the card I started with a very light aqua (you can see it right behind the scallop circle), then sponged 2 shades of darker aqua and blue ink around the edges, then again with 2 shades of purple. I stamped snowflakes from Stampendous in the darkest of the blue and purple as well as a few in white. (if you click on the photo you can see the white snowflakes a little better. I wish I would have embossed them now so they would have showed up better).

I googled free Frozen images and free scalloped circles and came up with this and this to add to the front of the card. I cut the images with a punch and the scallop circle with my Silhouette. Added a punched snowflake and sequin and ribbon to finish it off.

My friend Charlotte had a ton of decorations that was perfect for our party...

The food table before the food came:

Laden with lots of yummy food!...

First these plates were perfect for our theme. I bought them from Hobby Lobby 1/2 off.

and napkins left over from B & K's wedding.

How perfect are these cookies??!! Laura found them at Walmart.

my contribution was these jello pinwheels (recipe can be found HERE) made with  Cotton Candy jello (found at off brand, but yummy)

Charlotte made this yummy puff popcorn. Two ingredients!! Puff popcorn and almond bark. I am definitely making this for Christmas. She added some blue coloring to part of the batch. So fun and yummy!

and here she did the same thing with regular popped corn.

Blue dyed eggs with black olives (I'll let you use your imagination for the black olives. LOL)

White cheese and crackers
 I didn't get a picture, but there were also almond bark covered snowflake pretzels with blue and purple sprinkles

blue poke cake

Sandwiches from a song in the movie that says "we finish each other's 'sandwiches'"

 sandwiches made with a snowflake cookie cutter

The yummiest sugar cookies and cookies in the center!! I'm still waiting for the sugar cookie recipe, the ones in the center is a bag of white chocolate chips melted and then add 1/2 cup each of chopped nuts, coconut and dried fruit. She used walnuts and dried blueberries. Definitely making these for Christmas too!

White chocolate peanut butter balls

 And here it is... the table filled with food!

The tables decorated in the center that the ladies sat around...

We do a gift exchange each year and here is when part of the gifts came. I forgot to take a picture after everyone had brought their gift. 

 A great time was had by all and we had a lot of fun going with a theme this year. Usually it's just bring a gift and treat to share with a red table cloth for decorations. It's also usually in the morning and lasts an hour to 1.5 hours. By having it in the afternoon, the ladies were able to just relax and visit as long as they want. It started at 2 pm and I got home after 5:30. I loved having it later and believe the ladies did as well.
