My after-christmas White Elephant Party is this weekend, and I thought I’d share a little of the party preparations with you today.

First off, if you’ve never done a White Elephant Party, they are a lot of fun… I try to do one every year, and this year –since my December was so busy– it’s happening after the holidays. In fact, a White Elephant is a great *after* the holidays party since people probably received one or two things that they could stand to regift! A White Elephant (also called a Yankee Swap or a Dirty Santa) is a gift exchange where everyone steals gifts from each other. The rules are pretty simple, but I’m just going to point you to last year’s post, with all the rules, if you’re not familiar. Go ahead, I’ll wait…

OK!

So today I’m doing a bit of party prep… cooking of course… I figured you might like to see what I’m making! I’ve be taking pictures, so you’ll be getting full recipes and how-to’s for some of these next week.

You’ve been wondering what I was going to do with the Tartlet Shells I made the other day, right?

Bunches of the Tartlets... they get cooked tomorrow!

I think things are coming together nicely, don’t you?
