Anatomy of a Christmas Theme

September 11, 2010 at 2:06 pm

We have determined our Christmas theme for this year ā€“ Noel a la Maison. šŸ™‚ I am getting ready to create little house ornaments made of clay, but first I need to find my house-shaped cookie cutters.

I also want to make house-shaped invitations. I wonder whether or not I have any house-shaped stamps? I will need to look.

For the menu? Down-home cooking, southern-style. I think I will dive into my Southern Living Cookbooks for inspiration, and see how many things I can make ahead. Of course, we will be needing to eat quite a bit out of the freezers first!Ā  šŸ˜†



Christmas in September

Here it is 90 degrees, and Iā€™m staying cool working on Christmas presents. Slowly, but surely, Iā€™m making a small pile of them. Will I have enough by Christmas? Tis always in my thoughts. As the holidays grow closer, I tend to get more and more creative about what I am going to give folks.
