A Whoville-like Christmas!

One of my life-long favorite Christmas movies is the animated “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, written by Dr. Seuss.  Imagine how much fun it was to help decorate this week for a Christmas party with a “Whoville” theme!

If you are a big fan of the movie as well, you might remember the “Welcome to Whoville” arch – it’s pink.  We made one for this event in purple – to match the client’s company color.

For the stage, we fashioned a skiwampus, Whoville-style Christmas tree with ornaments and lights.  To complement the rest of the decor, we created custom, oversized Christmas ornaments and suspended them from the ceiling.

Ahhh…the power of suggestion!  The pull to revisit my childhood for a short while by watching the classic “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” is strong!  Lucky for me, my grandkids came to visit today – so I watched it with them (it was the FIRST time they’d seen the movie) – FUN!

Happy Christmas to all!
