As promised, here is our hysterically homespun Christmas tree. For a base layer, we bought a few strands of colored balls at Jamali Garden but then we let our friends (adults, believe it or not) make the rest of the ornaments at our holiday party last weekend. We laid out computer paper, scissors, and ribbon by the tree and, before we knew it, snowflakes started to take shape. Like elementary school art class but with champagne, it was the perfect party activity.
In a few years, I’m sure well have built up an ornament collection with a few Waterfords, but in the name of good friends and the first Christmas in our new home, I’ll always keep a few computer paper snowflakes.
