Table Setting: Pre-Christmas Family Dinner


 Because our family was not able to be all together on Christmas Eve or Day last year, we had a Pre-Christmas dinner to celebrate the season a bit early.  Place cards included baby photos as well as an over sized chocolate chip cookie with the guest's name piped onto it with frosting.  Just follow the directions on the Nestles bits package and use a large scoop to measure batter when baking cookies.
MERRY CHRISTMAS !

I love these ideas! Using baby photos is such a fun idea, and also love the idea of the cookie, plus you can eat it later.

Thanks for linking up to Making Your Home Sing Monday!
