This picture does not do justice to the beautiful centerpiece. A glass train...which is lit up by a string of lights going through the train. This was the table set up to hold the very original and unusual decorated fat 1/4 gift exchange.
This was the food table....the non calorie foods
Next came the center piece at the main table.
We cannot forget our beverage table. This christmas tree had all the trimmings relating to quilting. We have quite the talented group. The food was superb, the beverage had quite the punch, and the desserts, words could not describe. After the main course and before dessert & coffee, Chris read a short story to the group "Lighthouse by Robert Munsch" and Claire read "Winter's Tale by Robert Sabuda" Because Claire's story was read from a pop up book.
The last part of our luncheon was the Fat 1/4 Fabric Exchange. Florence read an e-mail which she received from Santa and laid out the ground rules for the fabric exchange.
This was my gift. It was encased in a silver bauble and delivered by one of Santa's Reindeer. The fabric is magnificant. I think that it is just too beautiful to cut. I will just drool over it for awhile. Oh, I just love christmas, calories and all.
