Christmas trees and beautiful decorations inspire me to incorporate more traditional red tones in at least one room of my house.
The mantle is stunning.
I enjoyed some cranberry orange punch and tea sandwiches while I mixed and mingled with others.
Isn't the centerpiece lovely, too?
The "Grinches," made from grapes, bananas, strawberries, and a marshmallow, are a sweet and healthy alternative to cookies and pies.
The holiday party is a fundraiser to help maintain the chapter house. Each chapter brought a basket or item for the silent or live auction. Here are a few of my favorites:
Wizard of Oz...
and Sock Monkey...
I won an Alice in Wonderland theme basket in the live auction. The stunning Longaberger basket has a silver tea service set, antique tea cups and saucers, teas, scones, and other sweet treats. There's also a game of croquet in the basket and a bottle of champagne labeled "Drink Me." Yummy!
