We had a very special Christmas Dinner Party (for 14 guests) at our home on Saturday night (that’s last night!). The house was decorated outside with many lights and special features…
And, of course, inside was decorated “to the fullest” with our 9-foot tree, etc. We had “Yule Log” showing on the TV, playing soft Christmas piano music.
We were fortunate to have Roxanna Baker, an accordionist, playing Christmas carols during the cocktail hour. She added much gaiety to the evening!
Here is a short video of her playing… (Click on the video below …You may be connected directly to our main blog site in order for it to play.)
We greeted everyone as they arrived (in lovely holiday attire!) and took photos in front of the Christmas tree.
The table for hors d’oeuvres was set up in the Great Room, complete with Pâté de Foie Gras, Caviar (with its accompaniments) and other special treats.
Here are some candid photos taken prior to dinner:
Just before we sat down to dinner, Ginny performed her “usual” 12 Days of Christmas song… with Roxanna playing on the accordion. This is just a short snippet of it…(click on the video below… As before, you may be connected directly to the blog site to view.) It’a a little dark, but you’ll “get the picture”, pun intended….
After that, it was time to go to the table…decorated for the occasion.
There were vintage wines, champagne, and other libations throughout the evening.
Of course, we took some candid photos during the dinner. Special thanks to both Gloria Nielsen and Pam Heidinger who took many of the photos throughout the party!
It was a wonderful evening… and we thank everyone who attended … for gifts of wine and other Christmas items. Merry Christmas to all!
And … Happy New Year 2018 to everyone!!
