Every party needs to start with something refreshing, right? We certainly don’t want to buck with tradition, now do we?
Look how cute the table decorations were.
See those 4 pictures at the end of the table? Janet made one for each of us as a party favor. How lucky were we? Here’s a close up.
I’m so glad I got her “into” wool.
We had a delicious dinner of prime rib, cheesy mashed potatoes, Caesar salad and probably some vegetable that I didn’t eat. LOL. I must have been too hungry by then to think about the camera. Trust me, it was oh so tasty. Patty and Marsha (and Janet) did an awesome job on the food.
Through out the night we play games and exchange gifts. We always start out with stockings. This year I was in charge of filling them up. I got to thinking that we needed new stockings because the other ones had been thru many years of being passed around for filling and were looking pretty sad. Anyway, I didn’t get pictures at the party, but took these at home before I left.
I kinda like the back better than the front. Oh well.
Anyway, the stockings were filled with all sorts of fun goodies that I forgot to take a picture of. Bad blogger!
Then it was on to our “Secret Santa” gifts.
I had Patty and made her this pillow.
Then, Patty gave Marsha her gift.
Isn’t it cute? Gingerbread men in yellow ware all done in wool. Perfect.
Marsha is our resident quilter and she then gave Cathi this fabulous quilt that she made.
We all wanted to snuggle up in it. So pretty.
Cathi then gave her gift to Janet.
It’s a darling mantle cover (I think that’s what they are called), with a pretty red candle and beige candle holder.
So, guess who is left? Janet had MY name and gave me this cool lantern and wool angel wallhanging that she made.
I love them both. Thanks Janet.
I was just looking at the lack of makeup on any of us…must have been late when these pics were taken!
Okay, only one more post of the party left. Next up, the gifts that we gave each other.
