For brunch, I made egg nog french toast with apple-cranberry compote and Marina made this amazing spinach quiche with puff pastry.
We also offered our guests speciality coffee drinks such as
Angel Mochas and Snowflake Lattes.
We showed our guests how you can wrap beautiful packages and not spend a fortune. This ribbon and glittered bell I got at the dollar store. The bell came in a pack of 4. So Festive!
I love wrapping with tulle! The fairy ornament adds that special magical touch.
This package is wrapped with vintage wallpaper and a vintage Christmas pick.
It is really sparkly-you just can't tell form the picture.
My friend, Suzie, called it "the Sound of Music present" because it reminded her of the drapes that the von Trapp children's clothes were made out of.
This little bird was 60% off and cost $1. He sits upon a fanned nest made out of a paper grocery bag.
I wrapped this gift in silk taffeta that I found in my fabric pile. The tag is made out of vintage sheet music with a touch of gold glitter.
This package is done in all different types of white ribbon. The ornament was $3 at a discount store and the glossy white paper is from the dollar store.
After the gift wrap ideas presentation, we invited our guests to make their own custom gift tags. We precut different shapes out of vintage sheet music and scrapbooking paper, gave them glue and glitter and let them be creative!
Next, we had our cookie swap! Each guest brought 8 dozen and went home with 100 cookies!
