Hello my friends,
Craft group #1 celebrated a birthday last week.
The event was hosted by Jackie and it was fabulous!!
She blogs at Purple Chocolat Home
She made the macaroons. Darling and delicious!!
You'll see by the photos that this girl loves purple!
Her two love seats at each side of the table were new. Aren't they gorgeous?
The table was set with skelly dishes and the colors purple and gold. This hearse was the centerpiece. Isn't it cool and unique?
Candles were lit,
and pretty purple potion bottles along with more skellys ran down the center of the table.
Although skeletons were the theme, it was too pretty to be scary! :)
One of our members, Laura was vacationing with her husband. So this sweet gal took her place. (wink)
Jackie placed name cards at each setting. She picked the perfect one for Laura!
She dolled up these little coffin boxes and filled them with homemade goodies. They, and the macaroons were
our take home treats.
BONE-I-fied fun everywhere you looked!
She just made the trees and banner. Love them both!
And check out that chandy! SWOON!!
Everyone but the birthday girl contributes to the meal. Joanne made yummy asparagus/ham roll ups for our appetizer.
Natalie made this most delicious salad. I have got to get the recipe! It had Trader Joe's pumpkin brittle bits in it. . .YUM!
Brenda brought croissants,
and I brought dinner in a pumpkin.
I bought small sugar pie pumpkins so each of us had our own.
Afterwards we made a Christmas craft. Jackie had everything ready for us.
It was quick and easy and we finished it that night.
Karen was the birthday girl. What a cute witch she is!!
Amy made the orange drizzled cake. You can see the finished craft to the left of Karen.
Here is our hostess, Jackie and the birthday girl, Karen.
Craft group #1, minus Laura. Laura's husband has dubbed us the 'over achievers'. You can tell by Karen's table that he might be right. :) I am the hostess next month. How does a girl compete with this?
(Amy, Joanne, Jann, Natalie, Jackie, Karen, Brenda)
You just do your best, don't worry; and be happy!!
