Winter Celebration

This year we decided to celebrate the holiday with a celebration in January after the craziness of December was over. We gathered with friends and family for a wagon ride and fireside dinner. Although there was no snow, the weather was unseasonably warm so we had a wonderful afternoon outside.

Invitations from introduced the celebration and fun to come.

The party was hosted at a local farm who provided the fire site and wagon ride. We arrived with blankets, decorations and dinner.
 The decor incorporated a mix of plaid flannels and burlap with vintage accents and natural elements. The sled I found at an antique store and refinished with runners in bright red. Pine cone trees and plaid reindeer watched over the desserts.

 On the dinner table, our plate rack full of red enamel ware was an eye catching center piece.

 Once guests arrived, we boarded the wagon with candied nuts to snack on.
