This is the first year we're having family come to us for Christmas and I'm slightly freaking out.
I'm the youngest of three girls. Both of my sisters are insanely thoughtful, talented, and creative. They're culinary skills far surpass mine (I can SLAY an omelet) and their generosity goes way beyond any level that you can fathom. So the bar is set high. I need some ideas. Easy-yet-impressive recipes, decorating tips etc.
Fun and games is easy. That's my specialty!
Check out these ideas:
1) Ornament guessing games - how many are there?
2) Finish-A-Carol - draw a Christmas Carol (on a piece of paper) from a hat. Announce the Christmas Carol that was chosen. Group singalong immediately. Whoever knows all the words gets a point. Person with the most points wins!
3) The Upside Down Christmas Paper Plate Game (LOVE THIS) - guests place a paper plate on their head, host announces what to draw. Create a Christmas scene. Draw a tree (with a star on top), mantle, gifts, Santa. Choose the top 3 drawings for 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize.
