We hosted our annual Christmas dinner for our pals last nights.
There are 12 of us and it is a lot of work and so much fun!
|I set the table in the morning - love the plaid - is almost the MacLeod Hunter tartan!|
|Besides large bouquets, I did, a few sprigs of cedar in a small|
vase is so lovely this time of year!
|Teddy was in the middle, overseeing all|
|The Theme was "It's a Wonderful Life",|
so I made every person a small bell ornament that I
also used as a napkin ring
|One of the bouquets I made|
|And the other|
|The liquor cart, awaiting action!|
|Ah, and then: Dim the Lights.....|
|Don't you love the fairy lights under Teddy?|
|Everyone had their own crackers and more fairy lights...|
|Hostess with the Mostest. |
All old except for the Calvin Klein $15 pink sequin skirt!
|Barry, with bowtie....|
|There were props...|
|Movie Star Looks|
|A dance party is about ready to break out....|
And it did! There was much frivolity and sequins and satin and velvet and a dash of royal purple. And then the shoes came off and the music came on and it was every person for themselves.
In the theme of no man (or woman) is a failure who has friends, I took the opportunity to write a love letter to every single one of my friends. I share this, because the joy I experienced putting pen to paper is one of the greatest gifts I have ever received - writing to each of them, telling them why I love them, was a chance to express my love in a real and tangible way.
I will post at least once more before Christmas, but knew you would get a kick out of this!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
