I want to make this Christmas better than ever and I’ve decided to put on my thinking cap and make a few things apart from food. I started with Christmas crackers and have bought all the components from Party Shops and filled them with Dept Store cosmetic giveaways and things from $2 shops. Now I’m making 6 little topiary trees using terracotta pots, sand, wooden dowling and round foam balls with red/green tule twisted on wire and stuck into the balls. I’ve even thought up a game where we all are given a number under our seats and the number drawn out of the Santa Hat wins a little prize. I am having so much fun. Isn’t Christmas wonderful!
