Christmas Party -2010

 Centerpiece.  Lightbulb is quirky but I like it!  Another one of my very favorite things!
 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.  -John 12:46

 There should have been 12 of us.  A table was added to mine because my table only holds 10 comfortably.  Extra table was borrowed from a friend.
 Dollar General candels become beautiful when wrapped in vintage music paper!  They only carry one size but I stacked them to make a tall candle:)

 I loved how the sunshine was coming in the windows:)

 One couple had a child sick with strep throat so they cancelled at the last minute:(  So the extra table became our wine and cheese table.  Wish I would have remembered to get a picture when the cheeses were on the table.  We filled my wine pitcher - had never used it before so it was fun to have an occasion to use it!
 Last minute brainstorm sent me back to Dollar General for more candles to wrap in music paper.  I then dug out every votive holder I had and lined my steps with them!  So fun and since there were no kids invited it was a wonderful time to do this.  Also kept anyone from going upstairs where I hadn't taken the time to clean!!!!

Loved your decorations for your dinner party! The candles on the stairs is an inspired idea.
