Tree trimming

Last night was our annual tree trimming dinner! For the first time in at least 14 years we had to change our menu (it didn't make sense to try to make it all gluten free) but I think we found successful and yummy new menu items!

Tree Trimming Menu

Puff pastry brie with crackers and grapes
Tree (broccoli) Soup
Wilted Spinach Christmas Salad
Christmas Tree Cupcakes

We had a lovely afternoon. We spent the afternoon and evening picking out the perfect tree, making place card crafts, cooking and baking in the kitchen, stringing lights on the tree, exchanging this years ornaments, trimming the tree, eating good food and spending time with family. It felt just as Christmas should. Here are some (ok, a lot) of images from our tree trimming.


  1. What a special dinner!!! All of your little special touches are so lovely!!!

  2. I forget that you are a gluten free family! It's amazing how you don't even miss a beat! =) Your amazing! Your night looked fantastic!
