When you think of a slumber party you probably don't think of gold chargers and grilled salmon on puff pastry. But when Nicki throws a slumber party that's exactly what you get. Plus Christmas Cosmos, savory cranberry and sausage appetizers in filo dough, a warm Brie salad with apples and pistachios, champagne and warm peppermint brownies with vanilla ice cream.
It was the First Annual Christmas Slumber Party and I hope it is the start to a lovely new tradition. My sisters Trish and Kate were there, my cousin Claudia and my niece Sara. Missing was our sister Mary but I think she is buried in snow somewhere in Wisconsin right now.
We all wore our most festive holiday lounge wear or Christmas jammies and just ate and drank and ate some more.
We listened to Christmas music and did an ornament exchange. Nicki gave all of us aprons that she had spent the past week making, picking out fabrics that best suited the recipient.
Did I mention we ate? A lot? It was impossible not to. Everything tasted so good.
We also enjoyed Nicki's lovely home and all her Christmas decorations. It's making me feel kind of bad that I didn't put out much effort this year. Well, there is always next year.
I took a ton of pictures but I don't want to post anyone in their jammies so you'll just have to imagine.
