Christmas Eve Eve

Mom hosted this year for the eve before Christmas Eve because we had family in town - love! She wanted it to look festive, but still keep it easy. MacKenzie Childs paper plates and napkins are perfect for this! If you are local you can pick them up at The Plaid Giraffe. They are perfect for a holiday get together and they make fun gifts.

They make such a fun table and you can just throw them away when you're done!
I got my love for MacKenzie Childs from my mama - she has a great collection of the old pottery!
Snacks are an important part of hosting company and I love how my mom puts simple food items in pretty dishes to make it look snazzy:

Veggie Chips & Pretzel Sticks look so much prettier in her Juliska Pewter Ramekins.
Christmas wrapped candy always adds a festive touch - our favorites are the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups & Hershey Nuggets. I also love that she put the bowl on top of pretty holiday edition magazines.
For dinner she picked up a delicious chicken pot pie from a local caterer, Toni D's. Definitely a great comfort food. Then for dessert we had Braum's Peppermint Ice Cream and my Aunt Sue brought some Starbucks snowman sugar cookies and good chocolates she had made. It was such a fun night and the best part was baby Addie (Jenny & Eric's baby):

She loved her princess crown we got her in the Target Dollar Section and her cute gift sack - it's the little things!
The night ended with conversations over wine and sharing fun pictures. Then, baby Addie put her winter gear on - being from Texas, she has enjoyed her first Christmas snow. It doesn't get any cuter than this little munchkin:

Countdown to Christmas - 2 days! So excited for Christmas Eve with my family tomorrow!

Lots of Love,
