Christmas to me is all about having fun. It is about stuffing yourself silly with “special edition treats” that you can only find around this time of the year. It is about watching Christmas movies on lifetime that some might consider cheesy. It is also about slipping in your Christmas wish list to your loved ones and hopefully, you’re not on their naughty list. And sometimes, it can also be nostalgic. And lately, I am all about that.
So for this post I would like to share with you – my friends, what I did last year.
I made a holiday cheese ball studded with pistachios and cranberries for my sister’s awesome Christmas party.
And my mom made her famous antipasti platter.
I also did my Christmas baking in this beautifully decked up kitchen. I know, right?
I brought a tray of these super cute cupcakes to my aunt’s Christmas Eve party.
Don’t they look cute?
I used my favorite chocolate cake recipe and then decorated them with fondant for that Christmassy look. There is a melted showman, some Christmas hollies, and the little gingerbread men.
These are some of my mom’s precious collections that she proudly displays every year.
And then, there is this pretty banister that is all dressed up for the season. It can’t get any better than that.
