r Spode Christmas Tree that was both collected over many years and purchased at a smokin' deal for 87.5% off after a huge Colorado blizzard crippled the retail season - still one of my favorite shopping memories! Each place setting had a small mercury glass votive that I used as a vases holding fresh evergreen and fragrant Colorado carnations. Each hanging vase was tied with a red gingham ribbon & a place card. These became the party favor - same as the year before - so that everyone can have a little mercury glass collection.
5280 Cakes. It was perfect with another cup of hot coffee & lots of conversation.
