Preparations for a Holiday Party



Mr. Christmas Tree Lane hosts a party for his staff every year. We have done this for about fifteen years, so we have it down to a science! This past Sunday we made the sweets for the party... tipsy cherries, oreo truffles(two kinds!), Bailey balls, pretzel rods, and crockpot candy! These are all requested items and we try to accomodate and please everyone!



Last night we cleaned house. Tonight we will make all the dips and I will set out all the trays and bowls we will use and put labels on everything. Tomorrow night we thaw the shrimp, cook up all the meats, make the veggie trays, the roll up trays and the meat and cheese trays. Thursday I will get things out and start to decorate the platters. I'll light candles and put on music and wait for the guests!! It is always so much fun!

  1. You seem so calm, cool, and collected! Every time we throw a party, I'm a ball of nerves until the guests arrive! I spend well over a month cleaning and freaking out about the food!
