Before the end of the week, I will be posting my Christmas brunch story from 2008 for those of you who haven't heard it. It's a doozy.
On the picture of my Christmas tree from my last blog... that isn't a fancy tree skirt you are seeing... it's 7 striped brown, bronze, gold placemats. Last year, a little mouse dragged a glue trap into my "tree skirts" (two pieces of shiny blue and brown chiffon type material) so we had to get rid of them. And this year I was running out of time and thought... WHY YES. I will use placemats. And it worked out quite well.
