This post is purely going to cover the events of the housewarming party so as to not overload your browsers with pictures. I'll be posting pictures of our new home fully furnished in a couple of days, but you can get glimpses of it in this article!
Our housewarming party was amazing! To make things easy, since it is close to the solstice, we themed our party "Winter Wonderland" and utilized our holiday decorations for the festivities. Nearly all of our activities centered around Yule, including:
Gift ornaments with our new address attached.
Guess the number of ornaments on the tree. Even we didn't know how many ornaments there were until the next day: A total of 70. Our new circlemate Abby came the closest with 69 ornaments.
An Ugly Sweater contest. Congrats to Laura (above) for winning that one!
And holiday themed photo props on a stick for everyone to take photos with!
The only non-holiday themed activity was our "guest book," which was a giant gold crescent moon. We plan on hanging this in a centralized location of our house once holiday decorations come down!
Overall, we had over 40 amazing, smiling faces show to our party, including the majority of Circle of Fountains primary members (one member had to work) and much of the local pagan community!
The party started at 3 pm and the last guests left after midnight. This means that both attendance and length both well out beat our last housewarming party! Of course, that's not the essential part though. The best part was spending the evening with the amazing friends I've made over the past few years. We've all grown really close, from my inner most primary members of my circle to the people I just met in the community a few months ago. I've finally found my chosen family, where I truly belong. Everyone's been so amazing, and I love you all!
Coming up next:
