Christmas Day in Paraguay



Christmas on a bright, summer day!


Beautiful center pieces on the patio table.
It's hot... Let's eat out side!
(Thanks, Brenda!)

How beautiful! I like the upside-down glass idea for candle holders. :]

Mrs. C, my friend Brenda did all the decorations. They were perfect!

The Merry Widow said...

I agree with Mrs. C., those are GREAT!
Tell Brenda, she's very creative!

It's hot, is it? It went up into the 60's yesterday here in Michigan due to freak warm spell. It melted all of the snow that we got just before it went down into single digits. Now it's cold again.

But what the heck, enjoy the heat. I will in June.

I love the pic of the decorations against the summer sky. Its such a "Paraguay" pic!

Very nice and festive! I LOVE the upside down glass idea too!

The original Saturnalia festival had elements of things being "turned upside down" as well... is that something traditionally "Paraguayan" or does it originate in a more ancient end-of-year/ "overturning" tradition

Jungle Mom said...

berty, it's more like a "I saw it in a Martha Stewart magazine" tradition!

Looks like a real ball JM, hope you had a lovely day.

I loved the idea for the centerpieces! I'll have to file that away in my memory! OOPS I forgot, I have no memory left! Our Christmas was pretty hot this year as well. NOT as hot as yours for sure but near 80.
