The Brunch Bunch...

I hosted my annual Christmas brunch (I can say that now because I've done it for 3 years and I love doing it, so I think it's gonna stick) last weekend and I'm finally getting around to posting photos. I always have a blast visiting with my girl friends. They are all a blessing to me, so I'm glad we can get together during this busy time and laugh, eat lots of good food and celebrate the birth of Jesus.
I forgot to take any photos of the setup besides these on my phone, but there were lots of breakfast goodies. I got a few poinsettias and scattered them around the house and I'm doing my best to keep them alive! I don't have a great track record with house plants but I just love the way they look.
I always use some of my china as serving pieces at my brunch. I love it but I don't use it enough so It's fun when I can get it out and put it to good use.
I got all Pinterest happy and made homemade candles as party favors. I made them with peppermint and fresh balsam scent and the guests chose which one they wanted. I haven't burned mine yet but I'm not sure they take the place of Slatkin & Co. Fresh Balsam candle. At least they looked cute and each guest was able to go home with something.
Mom had fun entertaining the tiny guests! Anytime there is a baby she's on the job! Sam had so much fun playing with Rookie...they were each other's shadow. Always keeping tabs on each other. Every baby needs a dog :)
This year's card tree...It will probably still be up in March because I love seeing every one's photos so much!
So glad my mom came!
Fun friends from my Bible study and my Pi Phi girls. I always look forward to the brunch and I'm so grateful my friends and family give up a few hours of their weekend so close to Christmas to get together, relax and have fun. Love to all...
Merry Christmas!
