“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps, means a little bit more.”
Can you believe Christmas is just 12 weeks away?! It’s our turn to host the family party in our house, so I’ve been coming up with theme ideas to try to convince my fam into doing. Hehe… In delighted anticipation, I will be sharing these ideas with you all starting today!
Our first theme goes with one of my favorite Christmas movies: How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Jim Carrey did an amazing job of portraying the main character. So much went into the recreation of this whimsical world and people that lived in the imagination of Dr. Seuss, and it’s so much fun to delve into this as well, so let’s go!
The main thing is: Keep things whacky and creative. (Bonus if you make up words, extra bonus if it rhymes.)
Now, on to some idearrific thinkings!
You could tie a written note with the Whobilation details on a candy cane. Did you know if you warm them up, you can bend them into whacky shapes? So Seussical!
Tip: A Whobilation can be a fun costume theme, so make sure to tell your guests if you’d like them to come dressed in their Who-gear. We even had a contest for best Who-hair!
This idea for the outside decor is genius!
These signs are cute!

This is so much fun, creating crazy hairstyles and doing stuff you never knew your hair could do! Check out these ideas:
Add an item like this cute teacup to a headband to recreate this cute headpiece!
Add a bottle or upside down disposable cup to the top of your head to get that height:
Glue candies to bobby pins to recreate the look below:

Don’t forget the trusty doggy costume!
Cuz he’s just too cute!!!
The Grinch found that Christmas is not in a store or under a tree. Christmas is a celebration of the best gift of all: the birth of Jesus, who gave His life for us on a tree. You could follow what one church did and call it How the Grinch Found CHRISTmas to tie it in.
Enjoy your Seussical Grinchmas party and let me know how it goes!
