then five couples and seven courses. A white elephant game. Equals tons of New Years Eve fun!
My Grand-father would cover the tree with tinsel. One piece at a time. Heavy tinsel too. My Mom did the same thing and still does. I saw tinsel on clearance after Christmas and grabbed four boxes at .19 cents each. Woo hoo, I am a big spender. I started draping it on the dinning room table. You see there were guests coming for New Year's Eve.
I added fresh greens and flowers. Ooohlala.
Champagne glasses would be needed. Silver platter from 32 years ago, as a wedding gift, came into play.
Tuesday, December 31, 2013. That little brass time keeper was on my Dad's desk many years ago. He has been gone too long. I was 17 when he passed. He was 42. So, I guess he was at the party in spirit.
Anticipation, you know you want to see more....
