Life-Sized Gingerbread Boys


Talk about big gingerbread boys, a recent event had them and they brought lots of smiles from kids of all ages.

The event, Winter Wonderland, took place in a mansion in Dalton, a small Western Massachusetts town.

Outside a building,the gingerbread figures welcomed visitors.



They waved, laughed and chatted  with passersby, bringing smiles to the holiday atmosphere.

There were dozens of decorated Christmas trees, elves, music and, of course,  jolly old St. Nick in his red velvet suit!

The outside lighting displays looked gorgeous against the snow and darkness of evening.




Events like this bring lots of happiness and cheer to the holiday season, don't you think?

First Guest Breakfast of Christmas, 2014


While serving lunch or dinner for guests is always fun, hosting breakfast is my fave.



The first guest breakfast during this year's Christmas season was festive and fun.

One of my dearest long-time friends gifted me with these Johnson Brothers "Old Britain Castle" Christmas tree plates which I absolutely love.

So I've been using them for weeks along with bright red glasses!



Fruit is always great to have on hand to serve.





Red glasses were perfect for ice water topped with fresh cranberries and lemons. (Thank you, Pinterest!)

 It was poured from a transparent glass pitcher.  


Also served were eggs, bacon and soft flour-sprinkled "snowflake" rolls but I was too busy preparing (and eating) everything to snap photos. Sorry. 

Why not pull together a Christmas breakfast for friends and/or family members?

Of course, a sweet manger scene in the middle of the table is a necessity!


Your guests will love it and so will you!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO SERVE FOR BREAKFAST?
