Coming from New York and being a lover of New York City’s beautiful transformation at Christmas time; waking up to a blanket of bright white snow on Christmas morning; drinking hot cocoas by the dozen; being warmed by the fire and the red plaid blanket while sipping hot French Onion soup and all those other perfect winter scenes it’s been a struggle having a hot Christmas. I know this sounds crazy to some of my American friends that would do almost anything for a hot Christmas, but believe me… it just doesn’t sit right in the head when it’s a mega beach scene all around you; the temperatures are in the 90’s and it’s very difficult to find a human wearing full denim pants (it’s a shorts world over here) and the date is December 23rd.
But… there is always that ‘but’… my sister and I were invited to a VIP White Christmas Party – Thanks Michelle! Well, white in the fact that everyone had to wear white. I know it doesn’t count… but it was as close as I could get to a White Christmas. To make the event even better New York Cake Co. provided the cupcakes. I found this little poem on their blog and I just had to share. At CocoBongo they are great bloggers and almost every post has me laughing! For your laugh please do click here. A special thanks to their great photographer Michael of MDP Photography that captured the sweet treats before the “elves” got to them. 🙂 It was a great night and I was so very happy to be a part of it!
