As much as we tried, two of my friends just couldn’t get together with me to celebrate Christmas before the end of the year. All the better! With all my decorations packed away and the tree out the door, it was so nice to have yet another celebration! Three ladies with three significant others, eight children, all the responsibilities of momhood… but we finally got together a few days ago for a lovely dinner at a local Italian restaurant. And there were presents!
We all opened our gifts and were totally delighted! I brought my beautiful champagne gift basket home and took photos to share! And I did my best to put everything back very carefully, gathering the cellophane with the elegant silver wired ribbon, so I could take after and before pictures. Yes, after and before pictures.
What more could a girl want? Two bottles of very nice champagne, a magazine entitled “Champagne” (who knew?), a box of divine champagne-infused truffles, an exquisite hand-painted champagne flute, a velvety-black hand towel with glittery silver embroidered snowflakes, an ornament in the form of a miniature champagne bottle and an elegant crystal topped champagne stopper, all swathed in a sparkly black lame’ scarf and presented in a beautiful silver basket!
Thanks, ladies! What a perfectly appropriate gift!
