I’ve never been much for Holiday decorating. It takes me years to decorate my own house–I just can’t handle a seasonal switch-up. Besides Christmas, I confess that I’ve never mustered a single holiday centerpiece or vignette. Pretty lame, I know. My poor children and their holiday-decorless home!
Well, I’m happy to report I’m making a little effort this year. I decided to throw a smallish egg decorating family party, and gathered the supplies for all these eggs. It was a no-kids party, which made it about 94% less stressful. (Hey don’t judge me, they’ll get their day in the sun in a couple of weeks). Using Martha’s methodology, we blew out the insides which we then transformed into delicious German Pancakes topped with buttery buttermilk syrup and fresh fruit. We dyed, decoupaged, painted, and drew on nearly fifty eggs. It was a blast, and a sizeable mess. I was up til like 3:00 am last night cleaning up.
How do you feel about holiday decorating? I know I’m in the minority with my anti-holiday-decorating ways, but truthfully, I just haven’t figured out a balance between tasteful and festive–and with holiday decor, it seems a difficult balance to strike. Thoughts?
