Guild Holiday Party

red and white Christmas tree with white lights

Every year my guild has a holiday party hosted in one of the member’s homes. This was my second year to attend, and even with the bad weather we had a good turnout. One of the things I love best about holiday parties is seeing how other people decorate for the season. Our hostess this year has an amazing home and the decorating was just stunning.

I loved the red and white tree in the family room. It was filled with birdhouses, nests, berries and cardinals.

I was amazed at how many stockings she had made for her family!! Just completely in awe. I’ve made two and that was an accomplishment!

There were little bits of the season tucked throughout her home. I loved this little terrarium with the pine trees inside.

On the sideboard in her dining room was this Dept 56 Nativity set up. What I would give to have one of these of my own. Stunning!


I loved the garland on the banisters.

And another beautiful tree in the formal living room. It looks like another Nativity on the piano as well.

Such a gorgeous home on any day, but seeing it lovingly decorated for the holiday was amazing. The food everyone brought was wonderful – a veritable feast. I brought a delicious spinach artichoke dip that had a little kick to it and was oh-so-good. I’m still trying to recover from the chocolate Amaretto cake though.
