Ladies Christmas Brunch...

We cooked/catered a ladies Christmas brunch (it was beautiful) a week before Christmas. We made egg casseroles, hash brown casseroles, sausages in biscuits (sausage in a blanket) dipped in warm maple syrup...yummy!
Then we made cookies and cupcakes, bread pudding, Red Velvet cupcakes,....
It took forever to bake them in my little oven!
My sister in law made these adorable goodies....
Nothing was left after the brunch...oh my gosh! It was almost embarassing....like the women hadn't eaten in days (big smile). I honestly thought we had made too much food...NOT!

My sister in law's hubby made this pedestal for the cookies and cupcakes. He used cake boards from Joann's and covered them with foil, glued on the tinsel and then used plastic cups in between the boards. Adorable....not permanent but adorable for this party!
We also baked 4 hams, biscuits and gravy, made a few fruit salads and punch! Too much fun...

Looks like y'all made some yummy food and I know everyone enjoyed it. Just read about how you are changing your home so your parents can move in with you. I love what you said about honoring your parents. Good luck with all you have going on and Happy New Year!

What a lovely, thoughtful, and bountiful feast, Debbie!

And how fortunate your parents are to have such a safe, comfortable, and welcoming place to land...

Happy New Year, my friend!
