BFF Open House Merry Christmas!


Happy Merry Christmas and Friday Eve all! Wishing the happiest of holidays to all those celebrating. It will be a different Christmas for many of us. Our first without our son since we made the collective decision to not have him travel right now. It's all good (except for the fact that his presents may not arrive on time..."out for delivery" is vague) but they'll get there. As he was growing up, I vowed not to send him off to college without cooking survival skills and he's only continued to develop them in grad school, especially during this pandemic. He will make himself a special Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meal and I can't wait to see the cookie recipes he's trying! 

Putting the party up early and then spending the rest of the day doing some baking and maybe even relaxing! What's that?! Let's take a look at some ideas from last week's party! 

If you're still looking for a last minute idea, printables are your friend and Kathleen from Our Hopeful Home has some cute ones.

Especially this year, it's possible celebrations are smaller and if it's just one or two of you, there's no reason not to make it special. Grab some things and make your table special. Mantel and Table has a great post! 

I think it's an understatement to say that we'll be glad to say goodbye to 2020 and The Apple Street Cottage has a great way to say goodbye! 

Finally, you've seen Charcuterie Boards, but how about a Dessert Board for New Year's Eve? Yes please! Check out this idea from Lindsey's Sweet World

I want to thank you all for sharing your creations here this year. You all have inspired and kept me going through this crazy year and I can't wait to see what 2021 brings!

BFF Open House


Yikes! It's Friday Eve, the first night of Hanukkah, and almost the middle of December already. Blink and a week goes by. I'm loving that for the first time in 39 years, I'm neither working retail nor a corporate job where the words "year end" are a source of anxiety. I've been on a bit of an ornament making binge which you can see here: Paint Poured Hanukkah Ornaments, here: Paw-norments, and here: Pandem-ornaments

You've all been busy elves! Let's take a look at some of the wonderful creations from last week's party! 

If you have a bunch of mis-matched, scratched up, or just ornaments you want to change up your look, then this DIY Ornament Upcycle from Niky at House on Silverado is a post you want to check out. GORGEOUS transformation! 

Priyam from Simple Joys is back with her incredible paper cutting skills. These Paper Cut Candleholders are "simply" GORGEOUS! 

Another creative ornament idea was shared by Hello Sewing. Love these Pyramid Triangle Trees!

Maybe you're empty nesters like us. Or, with this year being "this year" maybe your holiday celebrations call for smaller desserts. Or, maybe you just want to make something special for yourself  (which everyone should do because YOU are worth it). For any and all of these reasons, you need to check out these Tiny Chocolate Cakes from Mantel and Table

Happy Weekend all! Let's see what you've been up to this week!
