Then it was Christmas Day - Being away from family around the holidays has never been easy for me but this year was a little easier. I was feeling very blessed for the friends in my life that I "spearheaded" (as Bryan calls it) the Christmas committee. The most exciting part for me was setting the table. Again, gotta give a shout out to my 99 cent store where I purchased majority of the items for $30!!
|Each plate had a charger, cracker, and name tag.|
|I got the idea while in the store to use ornaments as name tags. Blue was chosen for Mark and JD (Bryan's roommates) who are Jewish!|
The center piece was a left over charger, red and silver ornaments and a white candle.
The Food - Oh my goodness did we have a vegetarian feast. The wonderful part was that each of us brought something to the table that represented our families and/or our culture.
|mmm...Mac&Cheese w/ WI sharp Cheddar!|
A great time was had by all! I hope your holidays were as lovely and memorable as mine were.
