This year is soiree time at Quinta de Luz. I feel like this is the house warming party I wasn't able to have. Christmas Eve afternoon we are all gathering here to celebrate the season, the friendships, and to help the bond between all of us grow just a little stronger. I'm quite excited and plans are in full swing. Can't reveal too much at this moment as some guests read this blog - so there would be no surprises.
I am having fun decorating though. I decorated some Christmas balls the other night. When I was finished, I thought for sure my friend Wendy (the Queen of glitter) had been here. I was up to my knees in the stuff. They look pretty though.
Driving by the nursery yesterday gave me the urge for poinsettias. Good thing I went in when I did. The supply was diminishing before my eyes. People were loading their cars, drivers were picking up dozens at a time, and the delivery truck was being loaded. I managed to get a few and tucked them in with the plants in the entry garden. I may move them down to decorate the fountain the day of the soiree. I'll keep you posted.
