The salt dough ornaments were ready to be painted and bedazzled.
The house was full of people, some more formally dressed than others.
We had several serious artists at work.
And there was a bit of silliness also. Our friend models TU and OU earrings.
Here's a close up of one of the ornaments. People take their painting very seriously around here.
And when the party ends, we have a lovely tree full of ornaments from our friends, family and neighbors.
We always have a lot of fun hosting this party.
Does your family have a tradition of hosting a holiday party? If yes, what do you do?
