Progressively Joyful #1

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

     Yesterday was a festive day filled with family and fun. The girls in my family decided to host a progressive Christmas tea, so we could see how each house was decorated for Christmas. We went to each home, and each lady prepared a lovely tea sandwich and a favorite tea. It was a splendid time of togetherness and holiday cheer. This week I am doing a special post for each home that was visited. I hope you enjoy a progressively joyful week here on Joyful Treasure Hunting.

The first home was my sisters, and her table was set so lovely. 

Her center piece was so cute, and so easy to reduplicate through out the year with different colored beads for different seasons.

Her tree was decorated with love by her two little ones

Her "mantle" was so festive! The trees in the corner will be a theme through out the posts because her husband made those lovely trees last year for christmas presents. I took pictures of them in each home displayed in love. 

These were her wonderfully yummy sandwiches that she served. I think these sandwiches were my favorite from the day. 

Here is the recipe if  you are interested in making these yummy sandwiches

Spinach Dip Sandwiches

1 pkg frozen chopped spinach, drained and squeezed dry
1 pkg  vegetable soup mix
1 cup chopped almonds
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise

Mix the sour cream and mayonnaise together in a bowl. Pour in the soup mix, almonds, and spinach. Mix thoroughly and refrigerate for at least four hours. Spread over bread slices, AND ENJOY!

 She also served these yummy muffins, but I don't have the recipe to share with you all.

What special events do you do with your family?
