I put all the names for the giveaway into a bowl and drew out the name of the winner. The winner is Classy Chassy from Expressly Corgi . I would like to encourage you to go on over to her place and congratulate her. I would also like to thank CSN Stores and especially the Dining Rooms Direct branch for their lovely gift. If you are shopping for Furniture, Cookware, Housewares, or Home Decor, etc. You might go on over and check out their amazing Superstore.
I have been working hard to get ready for a big party. . .
I thought you might enjoy seeing how my buffet table looks. . .
My very dear friend Sarah created this funky but gorgeous floral arrangement for me. Didn't she do a great job? I think it looks wonderful. The coolest part is that she used leftover stuff to make this amazing arrangement. She is so talented and amazing and such a beloved friend.
I have another dear friend who cooked, and catered my party for me. She has a wonderful little sandwich shop called Blessings. It is located here in Seymour and it is my absolute favorite place to eat lunch.
As if catering my party wasn't enough, my friend Jo also came over and looked around my home and she put this gorgeous table together.
She took several silver and white items from around my home along with my glass and crystal serving dishes and added a few of her own beautiful dishes and created this Heavenly table scape.
She also blessed me with some fresh greenery to give the table some punch
She had spray painted and glittered up some branches to use and we used some sparkly sheer fabric that I had purchased at Walmart to drape over the white tablecloth
The first party my friend helped me with she quickly convinced me of how very talented she is. She came in and within a matter of minutes she knew where everything was in my kitchen. After the party everything was put back just as before (I was not bothered with even one question of where something was located). She is such a blessing to me in so many ways. Best of all I get to call her friend; and even better she prays for me.
Her food and her decorating is so amazing it just takes my breath away with wonder.
She loves catering parties and she is so good at coming into a place and with random items from the hostess she will quickly create a beautiful table scape that reflects the style of the hostess.
She definitely figured me out because I love shiny and sparkly. I think just about everything looks better with a bit of sparkle and shine.
And the addition of greenery and flowers endeared this table scape to my heart even more.
Jo has done such an awesome job of blessing my guests the past 3 years that our party has quickly become a tradition that is looked forward to by many of the hospital employees.
My favorite part is knowing how my dear friend Jo prays over all she cooks and decorates because she wants every guest to feel special and blessed.
When you eat at her little sandwich shop, you can count on eating food that is prepared with love and prayer. And it is such amazing food. She has a talent with food and spices that rivals any famous chef.
In the picture below is a picture of my friend Jo busy working and creating (always with a beautiful smile).
My first guests have arrived . . .
Soon my house will be filled with more beautiful amazing people who have come to celebrate the awesome and wonderful season of Christmas with us.
I love how they fill my home with joy and laughter. Just look at that food. It is every bit as good as it looks.
I had better go, I think I hear the doorbell ringing. . .
Until next time.
