We decided against a sit down meal, and went for cocktails and canapes, followed by a buffet, the annual soup competition and then dessert, some very special bubbly and then tea and sofa snuggling.
|Mini cherry and dark chocolate trifles. HIGHLY dangerous!|
|"Champagne flutes" for my mum and aunts - to avoid drunk and disorderliness|
|Joint effort on the salmon!|
|Posh Squash... for use in alcoholic drinks only!|
|Soup tasting in the Potage Cup 2012|
We worked hard on the prep, we grafted all night, we hardly ate any of the food we prepared and drank barely a drop. We collapsed in to bed at 3am, shattered, but it was worth it to have all our loved ones together, in our new home, at Christmas... except Kate Louise - we missed you. Lucky we had Fake Christmas last week.
