Smitten Christmas Party

rupert sarah christmas smilebooth // I'm with SantaHappy Christmas Eve you guys! Remember the holiday party I mentioned here and how I lost my voice from all the laughing and screaming? Well, having Smilebooth in our home was a big part of the fun that night. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the night and make sure you look after the jump to see me doing my best santa impersonation.

I’ve definitely been wearing my fair share and also added a little to our sofa with a sequin pillow. Sequins create a subtle pattern but with a big glitzy statement and I can’t get enough. So go ahead and wear a sequin dress (I did, at our holiday party… photos coming soon), maybe use a sequined curtain as a backdrop to a photo booth, or throw a sequined pillow into your home.

This twirl inducing number from Aqua by Aqua was perfect for the occasion.
