메리 크리스마스! 해피 뉴이어~

Such a long while since I last updated a blog post here. A lot of things happened in these few months and I have been super busy in my new job, then my Korean trip with my hubby (hopefully some posts about the trip will be uploaded soon). Yet I’ve got 4-day-holidays for Christmas and of course I spent them with all my dearest friends and family.

Since last year after I’ve got married, I always invite friends over to my place for some chill out or party time. And ever since, Christmas party became a little traditional thing here. I sent out e-invitation, party rules and also decorated the house, planned the menu, prepared gift for exchange, and wrote Christmas cards. I think I’ve done pretty much everything that a Christmas party should be like. The most important thing is, everyone gets happy! So I am happy! After all, Christmas is like a time for friends and family to gather together, to celebrate and enjoy.

Garland decoration is totally my thing. I use different garlands for different seasons and this nordic-style garland was purchased on the internet from Korea. #텐바이텐

What can make a Christmas party even more unforgettable? How about serving freshly baked homemade food? Actually I have been struggling whether I should just order outside catering food instead of waking up at breaking dawn and kneading doughs and baking whole morning. But I finally gave it a try… Let’s check out the menu below!

We all were so full and so we tried to divert our focus from non-stop eating to gingerbread cookie decoration. Everyone was so creative and fully concentrated on their only piece cookie. Looking cute!
