It's a New Year!
For one of my club's that is!
And that meeting was at my house
I had two great co-hostesses
And we came up
(well, read that as "stole")
the theme of
C I R C U S
We met . . .
We planned . . .
We ordered from Amazon
(All kinds of neat circus stuff)
And tonight, the plan came together.
The dining room table
Red and white like a big top!
(We called it the Midway)
"Snow Cone" cupcakes
With all the circus food, we felt we needed to be a little healthy
(What better than a clown veggie tray)
(We served it with homemade Dill Dip --
I had forgotten how good that recipe was --
have bought way too many containers of commercial dill dip --
there is no comparison)
Popcorn and lemonade (with red and white stripe straws) and Animal Crackers!
And there will be corn dogs when they come out of the oven
And cotton candy -- on sucker sticks -- "appetizer" cotton candy!
And every circus needs a Merry Go Round . . .
An old one that one of the co-hostesses had
Which made the perfect centerpiece
The hostesses adorned for the evening!
And once we had our circus fun, we settled down to a business meeting
I feel so lucky to belong to an organization full of so many wonderful women
Who do good works!
Linderhof is now back in pre-party order
The dishes are done, the chairs back in the dining room and breakfast room
Jim and I ate leftovers
(for a hostess has no time for food!)
