Tis the season ...

You are about to enter the spectacular wonderland
of Wayne and Suzan's ...




Last evening Clint and I attended a party at Wayne and Suzan's, our friends and neighbors. Wayne and Suzan know how to throw a party!  The festivity begins even before entering their home, they have the most beautiful Christmas lights adorning their yard and home.




Wayne and Suzan's beautifully decorated home.

Looks warm and inviting inside, doesn't it?
IT IS!


Guests had many choices!  As I mentioned before,
Wayne and Suzan know how to throw a party!


A beautiful array of desserts on their buffet.

 

Our smiling host, Wayne.


 

Suzan is telling us the fascinating story about this most unique
coffee table.  It had a former life as a NYC street grate.
I loved the coffee table.  Wayne and Suzan have such wonderful taste.



Have a seat, please ...



Getting the table prepared for brisket, parker house rolls, bacon wrapped scallops,
hot crabmeat dip, meatballs ... the food was hearty and delicious!

The sunroom area, I love the Christmas decorations in this room.

he was at a spa.

It was good to see and meet  family members of Wayne and Suzan's,
Kathy and Scott.

Wayne, a master craftsman, built this fantastic greenhouse!
Love this neon watermelon light.

This color print hangs in their kitchen.  I love the way Wayne and
Suzan use color in their home.


Thank you, Wayne and Suzan!  We had the most wonderful time!
Merry Christmas and have a very blessed New Year!

Thanks, Franz! Wish you had been with us! What a great party. I ate all the brisket and artichoke dip and scallops, but nobody got PO'd at me. It was great.
