It's best to do it with your neighbors or friends that live close. Cuts down on drive time, and if you can walk to each others homes...you don't have to worry about choosing a DD! But if you will be driving from house to house, don't forget to decide on a DD before the night begins!
This year we decided each house could do their own theme of their own choice.
We chose Ski Lodge. We figured our house already has the lodge feel, so we already had the setting. Since we would only be hosts for a short time in the evening (about an hour), we didn't want to go nuts with party planning. But still wanted to do a few fun things..
One Saturday afternoon we pulled out the barn wood. Adam hammered some nails into it for about 10 minutes in the garage and came up with this:
|Yep, that will work.|
Welcome to the ski lodge!
Adam strung up some lights last minute to give it a little more pizzaz.
Vintage ski poles courtesy of my dad for some added lodge decor.
I served my favorite hot warm dip. Bagna Cauda. It's italian. And it clogs your arteries. And it's soso good.
Other stops on the evening's progressive dinner included:
Hawaii (if you didn't notice by Adam's lei)
German Christmas Market
A Wild West Saloon
and ended the night in New York Times Square!
I wish I would've taken photos at each hop, but the night happened so fast!
Here are a few more:
Adam's Aunt Katie painted this backdrop in one afternoon!
Beautiful German Christmas Market Setup.
Ladies in New York for the ball drop.
