As it was the holiday party and a potluck, there were so many yummy items to choose from that I thought for awhile, we might need to set up another table to hold all of the food. Several different sweets and treats, but some savory items as well, to balance out the sugar. Delicious sparkling cider and eggnog topped everything off perfectly.
There was a full house of members and guests at the party. I was delighted to see several members I had not previously met and then had the opportunity to sit and visit with several more that I have met, but had not had the chance to get to know yet. Sarah Smith, Sarah Peterson, Katherine Asaif, Krystin Salvadalena, Adrienne Kaylor, Barb Simonds and I shared a table and had a great time getting to know each other. It looked like all of the tables were full and the spirits were high. I hope everyone had as much fun as I did visiting with the individuals at their respective tables.
Perhaps one of the most looked forward to events of the party, was the gift exchange. It is so gladdening to see the generosity and creativity of our members. We had plenty of people participating in this gift exchange and I think everyone went away with something that they will enjoy and/or use in the future, I know I definitely will.
*As promised, I have shared the Bow Tying Tutorial in our Members Only area, if you weren't able to take a print-out or would just like to refresh your memory on making nice straight bows on your holiday gifts (or pretty dresses).
Thank you everyone for recharging my holiday spirit and helping me enjoy the SKG Annual Holiday Party!
