The Milk & Cookies Bar was a huge success! As was the Salad & Soup Bar with lots of toppings!
Milk & Cookies Bar. All of the food was homemade. I had nine types of cookies: German Chocolate Bars, Lemon Squares, Mini Cupcakes, Gingersnaps, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip 5-Nut, Sugar, Oreo Truffles, Red Velvet Cake Truffles. The "milk" was ice cream based punches - White Christmas Punch & Mocha Punch
As the party was winding down, after food, games, fun & fellowship, the party planning board and I gave out our favorite things. It started with each lady receiving a Christmas tote bag to take their loot home. They received Christmas candles, Russian Tea, Trail Mix, Popcorn & Hot Cocoa, Puppy Chow, Key Rings, Cupcakes, A flyer for a free 8x10 pic from our in-house photographer, more Christmas drink mix, nuts, fruit, etc. From me they received homemade Chocolate Martini Body Scrub. Yum!

Some of the answers during Christmas Family Feud
Most Touching Moment
When a beautiful Senior lady won money in a game and said she was going to buy a pair of jeans! And when most of the ladies said it was our best party yet.
I clipped branches, spray painted them red and used them as centerpieces for the long banquet tables. I clipped two snow birds to each centerpiece and used cedar & holly springs. It was a cheap, yet beautiful effect! I received so many compliments on the centerpieces.
