I made a couple pumpkin pies using my own crust recipe, no store bought already made crusts for me. The usual cranberry salad made with fresh cranberries, oranges and apples. That is always a hit.
House was filled with love and joy and 6 dogs-that is always an experience when it comes time to feed them.
I decided to have the classes in Frank's shop instead of the house to have more room for a few more people and LOTS more messes. His shop has a huge center work table, heat and space. Problem is, I have to help Frank clean it up before Wednesday of saw dust and tools. That is what we will be doing on Tuesday along with cutting lots and lots of berries and greens.
We had so much fun last year at the wreath class. This time I want to have a photo wall so each person can show off their individually made wreaths.
Out come the lights, setting up some small faux trees here and there; so far the basics are done. Now starts the week long putting on the ornaments. But I am thinking, this year, I want only white decorations. Possibly paint a bunch of pine cones white; spray Christmas snow on some new bulbs to make them white; white lights, white garland. Like a tree sitting in the middle of a snow storm. At least that is my plan for now except it may have to wait as I get ready for the wreath classes.
Will get back to you in a few days with photos of class #1 and class #2.
What kind of Christmas decorations are you thinking about doing this year?
