The Christmas Open House was a success! There were only a few bumps in the road, like a bag was left at the grocery store that I didn’t discover until I started cooking. The menu was changed slightly but no worries! Then I accidentally put 7-Up in one punch when it was meant for the other. Oh well, I didn’t let it get to me.
I made myself a promise this year that I wasn’t going to get overwhelmed and stressed out. That is not the purpose of having this little get together. It is to celebrate the season with our friends and family.
I told myself that instead of stressing to look at all the blessings that we have and just enjoy the Christmas season! It’s a time for celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ!
It is a time to reflect back on the past year and acknowledge the blessings the He gave us!
It is a time to fellowship with family and friends! To have a good time and a few laughs!
I think that was accomplished with this year’s Open House! To see last year’s Open House, click here.
Wishing everyone a joyous and blessed Holiday Season!

I just love this picture from Country Living! It’s not necessarily the tree but all the numerous layers on the table and the area surrounding it! This year I plan on putting on tabletop tree in the living room on the sofa table. The full size tree will go in the sunroom. I always struggle with decorating that table so this year will be a breeze, especially with such awesome inspiration!
I love the idea of using something as unique as an olive bucket to hold the tree!
Or even just a plain old galvanized bucket and if you don’t have a small table, use a stool!
How charming is this? …a vintage crock bowl!
Glam it up some with a beautiful silver punch bowl! This would look great in my dining room!
If you don’t have a container, cover the base with some faux snow! The vintage iron fence adds a beautiful touch to this tree!
White and silver is such a classical and timeless combination!
Even something as simple as a cake plate can make quite an impact!
