So I set the table and placed my small Christmas tree with my primitive ornaments on the table. Each year, half of the ladies make a buffet dinner for the group at Christmas in July while the other half will treat us to the dinner for the Christmas party in December. Once again all the food was fabulous!
I had a big surprise this year when Zwarte Piet stopped by to join the party. Funny that this Piet looked like family of our own dear Saskia! *wink* He passed out gifts and stayed for dinner and then said he had to go back to Spain...
This year we have Secret Sisters and brought a little gift for our Secret Sister with only her name on it. The excitement is rising as we guess who our sister is. We will not know until our Christmas party when she gives her sister a handmade gift and reveals herself.
We played games after dinner to win door prizes. Our ages ranging from the 40s through the 80s is no longer relevant when we have a party like this. We are all children once again!
Enjoy the slideshow. It is long but fun to watch I hope.
This year's theme project for Christmas in July was the SinterKlaas quilt I made last December. You can read more about it here.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend and hope you are being creative. Maybe a hot summer's day in July is the perfect day to make someone a Christmas gift?
