Happy Hour : Christmas Wrap


Saturday turned blustery with fog, wind and rain. Listening to jazzy carols, dreaming of drinking Peppermint Pattys. The mood was perfect for a Happy Hour filled with wrapping presents. This year, I used whatever I had on hand. Thankfully, there were spools of French ribbons which makes any gift a little more special. Wrapped gifts under the tree add Christmas cheer in our rooms. If you haven't started wrapping, here's some fun ways to use what you might have around the house plus some new ideas. Can't wait to try some of these next year. In the meantime, have a Happy Hour wrapping!

Meanwhile, here's to a Happy Hour Peppermint Patty. You can add all kinds of delicious liquors - but when working with scissors, I just make hot cocoa, add a couple of drops peppermint extract and loads of whipped cream. While you're enjoying your Patty, please take a look at my oldie-but-goodie Christmas articles by clicking on "Christmas" in the Category+tag list. Cheers!
