Snow Day

This morning we woke up to a picture perfect snow covered day. Heavy wet snow fell overnight, making everything look like a winter wonderland. It was our puppy's first time in the snow, she loved it, so it seemed.









Happy puppy!

Holiday Brunch



For the past eleven years on the first Friday of December, I have hosted a "Holiday Brunch" at my home. The group started with 7 stay at home moms, it has grown through the years, however, it is limited to how many I can sit at my dining room table, and that's 12. 
Mimosas, baked ham, cheese blintzes, quiche, bacon, fruit salad and a baked item or two, is usually what's on the menu, along with interesting conversations and of course, wonderful friends.






For the table, I put together three pavé style arrangements, using ivory color Vendela Roses and Lily Grass,  very simple but elegant.



Every year I look forward to this day, I can't think of a better way to start the holiday season.
