Are you off to a Christmas party this year? I’ve been reading all over social media lately about people’s plans for their work Christmas parties, and I have to admit I am a little jealous being defunct of even one Christmas party this year.
Being self-employed and working at home, the only way I will get a Christmas party is if I throw my own party for one. Although I sometimes feel like the poor local parcel and post men (not being sexist here, just pretty much always have male ones at our house) do feel a little like they work for me, with the amount of times they have to knock on my door each week.
However rather than throw my party for one plus a few random delivery people, I will just enjoy the fact that I won’t have a post party headache to look forward to, and won’t be embarrassing myself in front of anyone whilst drunk.
I have however still been drawling over Christmas party outfits, and who knows maybe in the future I’ll have somewhere to dress up for. Here’s a little insight my work Christmas party wish list and of course my dream outfit.
This is one of many Ted Baker Dresses at M and M Direct and I’m in love with the colour of it. It’s very slinky looking so I’d need to make sure I upped my planking for a while before hand, but it’s a little bit sexy whilst still being elegant. The perfect combination in my eyes. I would choose a slighter thicker belt for it though, and most likely a little sparkly shrug.
This part is easy, I went to a ‘Tweet up‘ at the Carlyon Bay Hotel Golf Club earlier this year with the lovely local people that join in with Cornwall Hour (#cornwallhour) every Wednesday night, and it was absolutely beautiful there. I can imagine myself and my imaginary work mates would love it there.
This is the view as you relax outside.
This would have to be the sparkling cider champagne I tried the last time I was at The Carlyon Bay Hotel Golf Club, it was absolutely delicious and I am planning to track some down for Christmas Day this year. It’s just the four of us for Christmas dinner, but why not do it in style?
Plus you can’t get much more Cornish than Cider – although I know Fin would happily have a pasty for Christmas dinner to help him avoid the green vegetables!
This would definitely be Hello by Adele, All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor, Yours by Ella Henderson and a little bit of cheese with It’s Raining Men by The Weather Girls – one I have never been able to resist dancing badly to after a few drinks.
The Morning After…
No hangover, no embarrassment over falling over or saying something inappropriate and no desperate need for greasy food – well this is an imaginary party after all.
So there you have it this Saturday in my head I will be wearing a drop dead gorgeous Ted Baker dress from M and M, sipping sparkling cider at The Carlyon Bay Hotel Golf Club whilst listening to some of my favourite songs and looking out at the gorgeous sea view.
In reality I will most likely be watching X Factor whilst working on my blog and claiming that I’ll be shutting the laptop in a minute….that’s a Mum minute by the way, which is scientifically proven to be longer than your average minute and much more filled with nagging and claims of “he hit me first”.
Enjoy your Christmas parties….I’m honestly not at all jealous
