Well, yesterday, we drug out the bar table, cleared the coffee table away, and welcomed a few of our friends into our home.
Our cocktail list included some classics--like Brandy Alexanders and Egg Nog--and some more novel concoctions--like the Candy Cane Cooler and a Poinsettia Cocktail.
As for food, we chose some delicious appetizers.
Smoked Salmon Dip & Crudites
Peppermint Fudge Pie (which, I've got to say, was way, way too sweet)
I broke out the sequins and red lipstick.
Others broke out their matching turtlenecks and warmed themselves by the fire.
All in all, we fit more people in our place than ever before and had a jolly ole time!
