One more major event down! And a success it was! Nice day, snowed lightly all day. We enjoyed a fire in the fireplace, and the snacks were a hit. I tried a suggested recipe from a blog commenter- Baguette with Gouda, Sun dried Tomato and Artichoke filling. MAN WAS IT GOOD! And everyone begged me for the recipe! I also served 4 kinds of wine, only one of which was cracked open and most of it was consumed by me after the show was over! hee hee!
I made a Choc. Chip Zuchini bread, and did the whole cheese, pepperoni and crackers thing, with some large black olives to munch on. Had soda and coffee too. People weren't really into snacking or drinking... just shopping! OKAY!
It seemed a bit busier last year. This year I only had about 16 people show up. Not too bad. But there were quite few people that couldn't come over. I'm not complaining though- it was a good turnout. And I did a lot of the tasks myself without a helper so I was thankful for a small group. Less overwhelming. Looking forward to doing it again next year!
Again, sorry for no pics with people but once a few people start showing up, I'm a busy bee flitting around the room and there is no time for pics. But at least you can see in these pics, the set up and the room decorations. It really came out nice.
Next on the agenda, buying and setting up the Christmas tree, which is happening today.
