Getting in the mood......

For Christmas, that is. Hello all!!!!!

I was looking back through my Christmas posts to find out how I set my table one year since we're having about the same number of friends & family this year as well. I also didn't want to forget small little touches from the past. If you care to look, you can click here, whether for sweet treats to give as gifts or napkin folding tutorials for a nice place setting or decorating even the bathroom. Or click here for some menu ideas.

This year, I decided to give out gifts to everyone at work because I think we could all use a little extra spirit. For something cost efficient & thoughtful, I went to one of my favorite sites, The Spice House. I purchased some muslin bags (which conveniently hold spices without getting into the recipe you're making) & mulled spice which I will put in some cute containers I'll hopefully find at the World Market this weekend. I plan to attach a recipe for Mulled Wine, Mulled Apple Cider (for those who don't drink) & Mulled Whipped Cream. I may also give out an alternative gift of bottled BBQ sauce I get from one of our favorite wing joints, for those who may not be interested in mulled spices.

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving ! See you soon!!!
