Advent 2010, Day 9: Parties and ornaments

December View for today:
Our new ornament for this year. An acrylic looking multipoint star with bling and feathers. Very pleasing to my eyes, touch and mood. :D

Reverb 10 prompt for today:

December 9 – Party Prompt: Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans. (Author: Shauna Reid)

This was my favourite of all! A total impromptu party in our garden that got bigger and bigger as the hours went by. :) As I said in that post, at that time I didn´t DO spontaneous so it was totally unexpected and a great lesson in letting it flow. Quoting myself for the prompt:

Now a little note in case you don´t know me much: I don´t DO spontaneous. I fret and I worry in advance. I overwork and worry some more before doing anything like inviting someone home. Not that our home is messy, but I want "Beautiful homes and gardens" perfect before letting anyone through the door. We do invite people and our parties are lengendary in the sense that everyone comes and they stay waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy longer than at other places. But I worry for days in advance.

Another lesson in change of plans took place at Mati´s birthday party, when it started raining at 5am and their tent got floded (not to talk about some strawberry cake that somehow got in there too). Now imagine hubbie and me transfering four very wet teens laughing their heads off from the tent to our living room improvising a new camp.

There were also school parties that were cool. One sports one that started my running plan and another arts & crafts one.
