Here are the party favors for the Christmas Eve table. I made a special trip to The Container Store just to buy the perfect wrapping paper, only to find out that it was sold out. This was my second choice, but now I like it better than my original choice. The content of the little boxes is a surprise for Christmas Eve . . . It's so hard to keep a secret . . .
And, by the way, The Container Store is one seriously dangerous place to visit. I was saved this time by the first winter storm of the season, which was coming down hard while I was in the store. Then the heater in my car wasn't working and I was worried about too much ice building up on my windshield if I stayed in the store too long. I was tired and was still facing an hour and a half drive home, and the weather was nasty . . . Thank God! Otherwise, I would probably have put a serious dent in my bank account. What a terrific selection of Christmas wrapping papers! And then they have all those wonderful storage solutions . . .
