Oh, sure, some folks went shopping . . . but some of us relaxed with good friends and comfort food . . .
There was already a pretty centerpiece ready to be used again . . .
And this time, the table is set in calming neutrals. Pretty soon, we will be surrounded by Christmas colors!
I love that hour before a party starts, and the table is set . . .
The sun is setting and its rays are streaming through the windows. It's such a lovely sight!
Won't you join me for an apéritif before the guests arrive?
