Allison sent me this great party just in time before I signed off for the holiday.
In Allison's words, "Just went to my friends' Amy (of Sideshow Press) and David's holiday party last weekend. So very festive, their house was so warm and inviting: complete with a tinsel tree decorated with old ornaments, feather wreaths (Amy's mom made magnolia/ pheasant feather wreaths taken from their Christmas tree farm in Mississippi....they looked phenomenal and hung on every window! very resourceful too). Of course the food did not disappoint, a complete spread of wonderful party food: yummy stuffed dates, backyard bbq with jars of sauce given out as party favors at the end of the evening, beautifully iced cookies in every color and shape. I could go on and on about the food! With so many people scaling back this Christmas it was so wonderful to be welcomed into the home of such dear friends and celebrate the season. It certainly puts you in the mood for the Holidays! I love the photo of Amy and David's son, Otto, with his first beer...I believe he mistook it for his own bottle...oops, the holidays have that way of making everyone merry!
Thanks for the wonderful photos Peter Frank Edwards...you certainly captured the spirit of the holidays and the Pastre home. Happy holidays to all!"
