It was a group effort, with everybody pitching in I couldn't be more thankful for their help. It felt so good to be able to host my family, who had given me so many amazing holiday memories over the years.
The good: an organized kitchen, delicious food, happy relaxed guests - a great success!
The bad: My nephews, now active toddlers, spent a lot of time running up & down the hall due to Auntie's small condo.
The good: a fresh pink & white color scheme, plenty of room for the kids to play, amazing food, a ginormous kitchen & our families got along!
The bad: little interaction with guests due to being "on task", still outsourcing things like plates due to size, forgetting to take photos, TOO MUCH FOOD!
The Good: Simplifying the Menu! It resulted in having more time with my guests, less time in the kitchen, and fewer wasted leftovers. An amazing poppyseed & raspberry salad was a great menu change!
The Bad: Too many jelly beans! The damask accent was reminicient of products I designed in 2008 & the flowers were Saturday's leftovers. Still too few photos!
