GOOD MORNING everyone! I am up and cleaned up and trying as hard as I might to make a video but I haven't had much luck :( I was able to find two clips that I incorporated into the video below, but the good stuff did not come out. I am not a good movie maker, and I am a little sad that I don't have the video of the great reveal last night. HOWEVER! I was able to put together some pictures of what the room looked like for dinner and an improptu rendition of Jingle Bells by my girls, followed by some treats and all of the girls getting ready to see the snowy, and pepperminty desserts. WooooHooooo.....I think they liked their extra Christmas present surprise too, judging from the squeals and screams!!!!~see you soon.... enjoy the video!

Hi Donna!

I'm a SU! Demo in AZ and saw your party video/photos this morning. I
bet the party was wonderful! It looks beautiful on your blog! I
absolutely love your table favor boxes!!

I am part of a Tea group that has been meeting for 9+ years so I am
always looking for great table decor and party favors. I am starting
a second Tea group and I am hosting the Tea in January. I would love
to make boxes like the ones you made. They are gorgeous!!

I have forgotten the name of DSP you used. Can you refresh my
memory? I know I do not have any but if what I'm thinking about
doing doesn't work well maybe I could post on SC to purchase some.
I'm going to try Versamark and Whisper White on Baja Breeze to get a
similar effect.

My November Tea was Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Early Espresso with
silver, white, a bit of vanilla. For January I had already thought
about keeping with the Baja, silver and white so your boxes fit my
plans perfectly. I had already purchased glass ornaments to color
with the reinkers and glitter for a Club project and personal gifts
and I have some left over. Your inspiration is wonderful!

Thanks so much for sharing!

I am so glad that everything went well, Donna ... after all the time you took to make this such a special event! I do hope your girls appreciate how much effort went into all the beautiful details! Congrats on a FAB end of year! Hugs xxaxx

Your video brought a tear to my eye, too! The music tied it all together beautifully. There's just something special about stampers that make us all instant friends, even over the net.
