I would have you guys over. We’d snack on desserts and chat. I would be mellow yet festive, the perfect, relaxed host.
And then then we’d go ice-skating in hell while a flock of pigs flew overhead because only when those things happen will I be mellow at Christmas time.
I love the season, I really do, and I have a great time but there is nothing laid back about it for me (especially now).
So, with my annual Holiday Dessert Party Extravaganza looming it was time to turn my mind to decorating as this is my only weekend to do it.
This year I wanted to come up with something fun for the center of the dessert table and I had an idea that would use apothecary jars, some scraps of wood, lighted mini Christmas trees and a bit of fake snow.
I’d purchased some tiny, lighted Christmas Trees at a post-Xmas Target sale last year.
If you wanted to do something similar I think mason jars would look great. The packages could also be made out of styrofoam and if you can’t find lighted trees then simple bottle brush version would work and you could layer in some mini lights inside the jar.
OK! That’s one decorating idea down! Onward!
Oh and Happy (almost) Thanksgiving everyone!
