The theme of the food table was "Winter Wonderland" complete with 3 lighted trees and a myriad of candles:
There was lots of good food: a baked ham for sandwiches, veggies, spinach/bean/ricotta dip, salsa and chips, chex mix, cheeseball, apples and caramel, trifle, gluten-free chocolate cake, Christmas pudding with hard sauce and a cookie/candy platter.
Perhaps it was a bit over the top, but it was fun to make, and several of the items will serve a dual purpose of "blog appearance" over at TCND.
Let me forewarn you that the blueberry-lemon trifle was INCREDIBLE! You will eventually see the recipe FOR SURE!
Besides tree-trimming there was also a table for cookie decorating -- not just for the kids in attendance, but the adults too.
Fun times! And, can I also mention that I do love my new camera lens, even if I am still learning exactly how to get the best pictures with it. (Note: most of my personal blog pictures are taken with my little point and shoot, but sometimes I throw in a few from my new digital SLR -- most of the shots in this post came from it.)
