I had so much fun planning and preparing for our Wassail party on Friday. Holiday Spirit was kicked up into high gear around here let me tell you.
Thursday evening I TRIED to put together my Williamsburg inspired table setting. I had gathered fresh fruit, nuts, and real greens and was OH so excited…. it left a little to be desired after I had assembled it. Poor thing:
Next year I will get some floral foam and try to give it some height and structure. But this did for this years attempt. It sure did smell good!
Then Friday morning I woke up and started making some Chocolate covered pretzels.
I had to put these candy canes out because they have my Dad’s name on them!
Look Dad you’re famous!
The BG and I each made our own pot of Wassail and had all the food out by 7:00. My awesome sister-in-law Andrea made the deserts.
And then I put my camera down and forgot to pick it up the rest of the night!! I was so sad when I realized I had been hosting so hard I forgot to take pictures of the Wassail or ANYONE DRINKING IT! LOL I told you I need an assistant.
But we did have a great time and everyone loved the Wassail. There will definitely be a Second Annual Wassail party. =)
We went shopping so the girls could pick out this year’s ornament, then rushed home to put up the tree.
Poor ole tree, it might be time to invest in some better looking fake trees. We ALMOST bought a real one this year for the girls , but I haven’t had a real tree since I was little and I really don’t know what to expect from one or how to take care of it without burning our house down! LOL I got a real wreath for the front door instead.
It was Patience’s turn to put the star on top!
Today we are supposed to experience a big snow storm and it is just as beautiful as it can be.
We are going to hunker down on the couch with all our leftover party food, enjoy our little girls excitement about the magic of Christmas, and watch It’s a Wonderful Life (my Mom’s favorite.)
