This weekend our friends had their annual Christmas party and it was extra special because it was their first year hosting it as a married couple (you may have seen pics of the dino-themed wedding on instagram). Jay wasn't able to come the party because he was out of town for work, bummer, and Tavi stayed with Grandma and Grandpa. This meant since I only had myself to get ready and get out the door I arrived on time!
Being one of the first ones there made taking pictures of the Christmas goodies easy; I got evidence of all the hard work that went into planning and baking for the party before the guests devoured everything! I was really impressed with the stacked cookie Christmas tree, it's such a clever idea and turned out so well. Most of the guests seemed to think it was too pretty to eat so it survived the evening unscathed. There were lots appetizers to go along with the sweets and eggnog and mulled wine made for a very happy crowd :)
I was looking forward to the party all week, but was a bit nervous because I'm shy and there were going to be a lot of people I hadn't met before or had only met once or twice there. Sometimes in situations like these nerves can get the best of you but I'm happy to say that I enjoyed myself and am now officially in holiday mode!
