It's that time of year again. Yes, my husband and I are hosting our annual Christmas Eve party.
He loves cooking for large crowds and we've been hosting Christmas parties since 2010. While in the Caribbean, it was pretty easy because we always knew it would be warm, plus we had the beach where we built a large, multilevel fire pit.
Here in Florida, my husband had to get a little more creative. As with our parties in the Caribbean, this one is growing, too. In fact, at last count, we are expecting 72 people! Luckily, we bought a tent.
We hand out invitations over a month in advance. We start decorating even sooner! Outside, we make sure there are plenty of lights so people can see when they walk out to their car at the end of the evening.
And of course we decorate inside, too. I'm in charge of the inside trees, there are 4 this year. I'm also in charge of decorating my office. My husband does all the rest.
We have a great time and at the end of the night, we sometimes have leftovers we can have for Christmas dinner 😊 The whole event is a present to our friends and family.
I'm looking forward to Monday.
After all, "It was the night before Christmas, and all through Lexi's house, the people were celebrating with she and her spouse. All the decorations were hung by her hubby with care, the guests complimenting them in their holiday wear."
Merry Christmas Eve!
