So, I’ve already missed four days of VeganMofo. I guess that’s ok, considering I knew I wouldn’t post every day anyway. I think I only did 17 days last year. So I’m hoping I can still up that to about 20 this month. I was working on a paper Friday and Saturday, and I just didn’t have anything to post about before that. But enough of my excuses! I’m planning a Christmas party!
I think I just decided to confine my party to one room so that I’m not running all over the place and having to decorate everything. I like this idea, I’m just worried about seating. So that’s something I have to figure out. But here’s some of the details I’m planning so far:
8-10 people, max.
2-3 types of cookies (gingerbread, and two others I’m not sure of right now)
2-3 types of savory snacks (I’m thinking vegetable crudites with dip, party mix*, and popcorn)
Hot chocolate kept warm in a thermos pitcher
*Be sure to use vegan Worcestershire sauce!
Christmas movies (Some of the following: The Santa Clause, Ernest Saves Christmas, Home Alone, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, A Charlie Brown Christmas…Probably one movie and a few shorts)
Holiday music while movies aren’t playing
A fire going in the fireplace
Christmas tree and lit mantle
Homemade cinnamon ornaments (I still have one of these from when I was a kid and it still smells amazing!)
And that’s all I have so far. I really don’t think I need to do much more planning except deciding exactly which cookies I want to make and figuring out the seating. I’m pretty happy with my little Christmas party right now. I just need to keep that guest list short so I can enjoy it 😀
Now I should probably plan my Thanksgiving menu.. haha.
