It started with tinsel...

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....


  1. I do! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! We had a wonderful Christmas but sadly how to put our sweet four legger, Murpy, to sleep after the holiday. It has broken my heart. She was my 16 1/2 year old fur (and first!) baby! :-(

    I can't believe you found tinsel! I love it and grew up with our tree covered in it. Then our first few trees had it I told the hubs the other day that I would have a tinsel tree again!
