It’s a Party: Holiday Wreath Tradition
It began over ten years ago, when I was all thumbs at wreath wrapping and bought craft supplies at the Big Box Store places. The grand vision at that time was something along the lines of wouldn’t these make great hostess gifts. Since then, there’s been quite the shift.
1. I’ve become the mountaineer hostess, gathering all the “forest” supplies.
2. My wreath crafting skills have gone from sucko to pretty good.
3. Summer garage sales are my go-to source for everything from wreath frames to ribbon and flocking and shiny decorations.
Just add a dozen or so guests, music, wine, snacks… and hilarious Christmas themed hats for all (also a garage sale score, and entire box of 30 brand new Christmas hats for $3 last August).
While I haven’t exactly felt like celebrating anything this past month, and very nearly cancelled the party because of some heartbreaking circumstances, I’m feeling immensely grateful this day-after the party. I’m blessed with good friends and family, and it makes me happy to be able to share the abundance.
