This year I took Chloe with me to the party. We wore our matching Christmas skirts (No mine doesn't have snowflakes all over it. Mine was solid plaid, but the same plaid as on hers. Abbie has one too. Emily got these for us last year:)
I intended on having this centerpiece below on my serving tables at the party. Well as I posted before I couldn't find my candle sticks. I searched all through the house. They have disappeared. So I went on a store search for some. Still no luck. I had to improvise.
This is what I came up with. I used goblet tea glasses turned upside down. I hid things underneath the cloth to give them different heights. Then I tucked a little holly inside each glass. I also used double sided tape to stick the ornaments on top. I am sure that this was already suggested somewhere, but I had to learn the hard way. I broke my really nice ones from Hobby Lobby by bumping the table. I watched the L roll to the ground and shatter. It was like slow motion when it happened. I couldn't grab it fast enough, and I knew what the end result was going to be. I had to grab these cheap ones at the family dollar (the only store in our town) in a last minute rush. All in all I was still pleased with the outcome. This year I asked different ladies to adopt a table and decorate it with the Christmas theme of their choice. We all enjoyed seeing the different ideas. The ladies who decorated loved doing it, and some who didn't want to do it next time. We will definately do this again!!
