I love to have a night that my mom, sisters and niece get together @ Christmas to just eat a simple meal after busy days of work, shopping and school.
1. Equal parts brown and white sugar
2. Place this in whatever container choose
3. Cover slightly with olive oil.
4. Add a drop of vanilla extract or whatever scent you choose. I chose peppermint.
I have these beautiful espresso cups and saucers from I. Godinger & Co. The pattern is Regency. I love these little cups and use them for lots of things. Tonight I used them for both the shrimp cocktail and the dessert. Just the right size.
Usually we girls do not eat much dessert so I kept it simple with two home-made sugar cookies sprinkled w/fine sugar, a dollop of melted chocolate and fresh blueberries. Just right.
I also used these little lanterns with tea lights and a sprig of fresh rosemary on top at each plate. The metal heats up the rosemary and gives off a beautiful aroma. Then everyone took their lantern home. It was a fun night. Thanks girls.
