Christmas party

Federica Piccinini

Here I’m back again! I was not missing….I was sick…. I hope you all had a great weekend!

Saturday night I had a lovely Christmas party with my friends. We had really a great time together. Unfortunately not all our friends were able to come, but I hope to see them soon…. 
I cooked all day! I thought it would be nice to bake these mini yogurt & chocolate plum cake for my friends’ Sunday breakfast. They have really appreciated!

 For my table I choose two classic colors of Christmas, red and green. 

The Christmas atmosphere has definitely arrived into my home…also here in my city, today it’s snowing!

We enjoyed our evening, we chatted, we laughed and we exchanged Christmas gifts. So many beautiful gifts!! 

I almost forgot to remember you that today is the last day for enter the Christmas Giveaway! Tomorrow I will announce the lucky winner!

    Oh Federica!
    I loved getting a glimpse of your Italian home!
    And your friends…look so happy and fun!
    Your table setting was just LOVELY!
    How holidayish for it to be snowing!
    Now about the bread!
    I adore how you packaged it!
    Did you package it in the little paper bread trays?
    Did you like baking in the paper trays?
    Maybe this is what I need to get to bake my bread for friends.
    Oh please do let me know what you think!

    Your party and cakes look fabulous. I love the glass dishes too! I wish I was able to have a party at my place for xmas this year. The boyfriend did a lot of traveling and it just didn't happen. We'll have to have a different themed part soon!

    Oh, those cakes sound so good! Would you at all mind sending me the recipe? I'd love to try!!

    Ciao Fede
    mi dispiace per la febbre…ma vedo che stare a casa malata, ti fa bene, con tutti quei dolcetti che produci e quella tavola che come al solito hai decorato in modo divino! Io sto abbastanza bene, faccio i salti mortali per stare dietro a tutto e a tutti ma per ora resisto ancora un pò, arriveranno le ferie prima o poi no? Bacione di buona guarigione 😉
