I always find it a little presumptuous to post pictures from my house, but I just spent 3 days getting ready for our annual Christmas Party next weekend. Several years ago I started having a Christmas party at my house for the folks I worked with. It was about 20 people. The party has since grown and this year we are expecting 50 people. This may not sound like a big deal until you consider that it is a sit down dinner. My mother has always cooked for these events and will not consider hiring a caterer (to the delight of the party goers). I truly think they come more for her very Southern and full of butter cooking than the party. We have worked all weekend on decorating the house and creating themed tables to seat all of these guests. Since the party is next weekend, I don't want to give it way to anyone who is going to attend, so I will start with simple pictures of the entry way. The light up Santa will go on the front porch to welcome everyone. I tried to take a picture of the front of the house with the lights on, but it was toooooo dark. Posted it anyway. I will post pics of the rooms after to party. Wish us luck...it will be great to visit with friends over good food and laughter!
