Yes the stockings are fianlly hung and I am so ready for the festivities to begin.....how bout you?
I have found a little time to bake, get my Christmas menu together and set the table ahead of time! The kids arrive tomorrow and I want everything and all the little details done so we can enjoy them and have time to play games, eat and just hang out together!
Here is the table, I changed it up with a little color from what I had used for my girls bracelet party last week.
I took out the white gladiolas and added red tulips.......the greenery was still okay to use once again and I took off all the candles except the candleabras........since we will be eating at 1:00 I didn't think we needed candles........and for the napkins I used red christmas plaid ribbon and red and green candy canes with names for the place cards tied with gold and white twine...........
I replaced the gold and silver chargers for red so I could use my red and white dishes.........
And for another holiday recipe I have this amazing Caramel Corn my friend Jill gave me! So easy and really really good!
3 bags buttered microwave popcorn ( already popped)
2 sticks butter
2 cups brown sugar packed
1/2 cup Karo syrup
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
In saucepan melt the 2 sticks butter and brown sugar, salt and corn syrup. Bring to a boil and let boil without stirring for 5 minutes. Take off and add the soda and vanilla. Pour over the popped popcorn and mix well. Bke at 250 turning every 15 minutes for a total of 45 min. Let cool and break apart......try not to eat to much! So easy and really delicious!
Happy weekend before Christmas.............
