Successful Souping

Hurrah! The soup was a grand success, had lots left over - but was able to give most of it away. The tea was wonderful - the decorations were fabulous, the gift bags went over well, and the food was great. Several ladies said it was the best ever (but they say that every year!). It's a lot of work, but very rewarding and even though there are always minor glitches things just manage to turn out just fine. It's a nice start to the Christmas season, and it always puts me in the holiday spirit!

Our theme was Winter Wonderland, we decorated with blue and white and snowmen. We had a very gifted lady named Valerie who cut out tons of snowflakes by hand for us and we hung those all over the dining room, and she also made a wonderful snowman cake that tasted just as good as it looked!

We had a harpist, sang Christmas Carols, and enjoyed my friend Brenda as our special speaker. A great time was had by all. Now we are settling in for a big storm tomorrow - hopefully our power won't go out and I can finish hemming up a wedding dress!
