Christmas is Coming

Posted 11-01-2008 at 11:31 AM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

This entry is an excerpt from my blog Ginger's Journey...


Christmas is coming. Faster than I thought possible. Today I worked on my Christmas Notebook and started finalizing my lists...yikes there's still lots to do.

I have been looking at adding a new nativity set this year. I have several but most are novelty sets...like a snowman nativity set and a Boyds Bears one....and even though I love them...I wanted a nativity set with a bit more realism to it...I have a couple smallish ones that fit the bill but not a main one...I looked at several from Italy and a couple generic ones from the USA....there was a nice Native American one also. But then this one from Mexico caught my eye on Ebay. I like the size...the main figures are about four and a half inches tall....so managable without being tiny...the painted details add a whimsical touch to the set...and...

Chirstmas in July Day 30

Posted 07-31-2008 at 06:09 AM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

Christmas in July is almost over. I wanted to work on recipes and menus for the last few days and life just keeps getting in the way.

I have a pretty full menu for The Gratitude Brunch and the second party: The Christmas Tea....now I am working on ideas for my Christmas Party: The Elves Workshop. For this party I will rename the foods and drinks so they have elfish names. And I will decorate with toys and other elfish items. I have an antique wooden train that has Santa driving which will be perfect as a centerpiece on the buffet table.

Speaking of buffet tables I am stealing cathymacs idea of creatind different heights to her serving table by puttting boxes or other items under the table cloth. I will be on the lookout for other elfish things...even as I wok around the house because my goal is to use what I have but to use it in different ways. Some of my minature tea sets will also be great elf sized items!!

The last party of the season:...

Christmas in July Day 28

Christmas in July is about to disappear in a twinkling of the eye....like Santa up the chimmney.

Some of the members over at Magic Holiday Home participated in the second Christmas in July Giveaway by posting ideas for theme parties. I compiled them into a printable little booklet and created a cover sheet.

We'd like to share them with you:
