This Christmas has been one of my favorites of all time! I have been blessed to have hosted two great events in the past few days. Opening up our home during this season is a joy! Today, I will feature an evening with friends, held this past weekend. Yesterday, myself and three close friends hosted a “Mother/Daughter Cookie Exchange” here, and, I will show you this fun event, very soon.
Christmas with Friends:
Dessert table with arrangement that I featured last week: Pottery Barn Outlet mercury glass trees.
The main food table. Arrangement created by my favorite florist, Garden District, here in Memphis, TN.
Our family room. Ready for friends.
The front walk way, lined with candlelight.
Desserts anyone? Each year, I have so much fun making desserts for our friends. This year I served: Caramel Cake, Chocolate Layer Cake, Praline Cheesecake, Fudge Kahlua Trifle, Double Fudge Cheesecake and, Caramel Banana Pudding.
Living Room coffee table.
“Merry Christmas” corner in our den.
Entry hall table with our “Christmas Memories” books for our friends to sign in. I love to keep a record of friends in our home each Christmas. The candle is a scent I have burned in our home every year…”The Smell of Christmas” by Aromatique. Divine!
A Sweet Friend:
Dinner is served: Fried Catfish, Buffalo Wings, Chicken Pasta Alfredo, Green Beans Supreme, Sweet Potato Casserole, Au Gratin Potatoes, Sausage and Cheese platter- Memphis style, and boiled shrimp. I do believe no person left hungry!
