-Not every day, but every once in a while, I love to host a ladies social event more reminiscent of another era than of today's casual entertaining style.
Yesterday was my chance. I had offered my home to host the December meeting of the horribly-named Stitch & Bitch group.
I decorated my table,
baked some Christmas goodies,
washed the delicate tea cups and unearthed my Santa tea pot.
With only five ladies coming, it was a very manageable number. No extra chairs to set out and everyone able to gather round the table. With this group, I know exactly when the guests will arrive and there is never the need to stifle a yawn or surreptitiously glance at a watch, because I know within ten minutes when they will depart. That's my kind of party.
There was laughter, food and fibre-y inspiration. All to the background of Christmas music. A perfect ladies afternoon.
