Christmas Eve – Part II
I did warn there may be a little bit of time in between parts I and II but I got there in the end. I realised today that if I don’t hurry up and post about Christmas it will be too far gone!
Liesl was correct – we did make gingerbread – too much gingerbread. We still have containers full!
The tags I previewed in the previous post became part of this package which we gave to my extended family:
In the packages were;
- Reindeer decorations – pattern from the Christmas edition of Better Homes and Gardens
- Hot chocolate mix – recipe adapted from here, label by me
- Gingerbread biscuits – recipe from here, label by me using a picture from here.
Everything packaged up into brown paper bags with little handles. They were very well received and I’m looking forward to making next years!
I love this verbena we gave to my mother in law. The colours are perfect for Christmas. I think I’ll get myself one too! The gorgeous bird tag was another generous internet freebie from here. I used the cardinal on my mum’s plant.
While on the topic of tags, Jenny from from All Sorts was generous with her tags this year too. Aren’t they gorgeous!
All in all I had a wonderful Christmas as always. The day was spent with family eating lots of yummy food!
I hope you had a wonderful day too!
