Well, it’s December! I cannot believe it! Projects for work slow WAY down this month and I am planning on tackling a lot of house projects that I have wanted to start for a LONG time. One of those projects will be my bedroom…..It is SO over due.
My area of concentration at this moment is my oldest daughter’s 1st annual FA-LA-LA-LA-LA Christmas party. This is something that she has been BEGGING me to do for such a long time. She has the hospitality gene, so I suppose, as a good mother should, I need to be helping her hone her skills. I am bracing myself and my house for 16 squealing 11 and 12 year old girls. It has been really fun coming up with the decorations from what I already have in my Christmas stash. My grandmother gave me hundreds of vintage Christmas balls in so many colors. I am thrilled to say the least, to finally be able to use them for a girly little party! So many of them are pink!
This party is going to be all desserts. I thought I would get the girls all sugared up and then send them home to their parents. I’m nice like that The dessert bar will be decked out with lots of glassware. I have a huge collection of platters and vases as well as some fostoria that belonged to my grandmother. I made a cake stand out of an upside down glass vase and a glass platter. I used my ornaments underneath for a little more sparkle.
