Happy Holidays and happenings

Wishing you all a wonderful and perfect Holiday for you and your families.  May you be surrounded by those you love in this special time.  And please receive my best wishes of much health, love, happiness, and success for the upcoming New Year.  Thank you for supporting me in this little corner of the blogospere.  Your readership means so much to me.

Some Holiday recipes I just tried and recommend.

I tried this candy cane vodka drink recipe to take to a friend as a hostess gift.  It was a hit!  And so festive.  And I made this decadent chocolate Buche de Noel.  YUM!!  It has three parts so be prepared to plan ahead. 

And here is our Winter Wonderland tablescape for last night's Christmas Eve celebration.  I designed it all around my aunt's antique lace tablecloth.  I mixed in a bit of casual (ie ikea blue glasses) with the elegant (my nice silver) to create a light (but not stuffy) and magical setting.

Stay safe and warm. xx
