I had an impromptu gathering of old friends and new neighbors yesterday...just some baked brie, apples and crackers http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/baked_brie/ with some Goldfish and chocolate milk for the kids. As I looked around the house, I just didn't think it looked Christmas-y enough for guests. I know I'm not called to be Martha Stewart with housing perfection, but I just felt a little burst of energy to do something...well, different,
Things being tight, I thought about what I had on hand. This is what I came up with in about twenty minutes. My "assistant" did the lights.
