I posted this yesterday morning in Saturday Morning Garden Blogging, and wanted to share with you all. It is what all the gardeners made with our bounty in our gardens this past year. No Chinese imported foods were used in the making of our feast.
Tis the morning of Chistmas, and all through SMGB many elves are a stirring, plotting and planning. To bring you a special Christmas Brunch, a feast for the eyes and belly.
The elves have been busy in the past 6 months leaving clues in their photo's on SMGB of what is to come.
Marian is the crew chief in charge of production. So this is what she has been up to these past few months that she has been a no show.
Our hostess Frankenoid has waved her magic skimmer, to provide the sparkles on the ceiling.

On 3, Kevvboy's magic gate will transport us to our secret location. Where on the outside Kevvboy and Jayden are having fun putting up the outside lights.
At our secret location upon arrival, finds us looking at the magnificent, enchanted, place Missy's Brother found for our feast.
He did a wonderful job with the table and chairs, and set the room just perfect in tone,with all his flea market finds.
