...the first annual Neighborhood Party...

...the big day is here...
...just at dusk...Scout lit the luminaries...
...we put the finishing touches on the table...mostly beverages...there's even Vegan Nog...and a little bit of finger food...appetizers are at the next house... the last minute I mixed up...

The Christmas Punch

2 cups orange juice
1 bottle white grape juice
2 cups lemonade
1 bottle gingerale
1 package of fresh cranberries (we put these on a tray and froze them overnight)

Chill and mix all ingredients together in punch bowl.
...and practically everyone in the neighborhood came... was so much fun chatting and getting to know each other...

...Have you ever hosted or attended a neighborhood party?...

~Have a lovely weekend!


  1. Yes, we are having one on Christmas Eve.

    Eggnog - shudder! We call it egg flip, used to be made in most homes. I think I could cope with vegan eggnog, none of that slippery feeling.

  2. I love the idea! I am inspired to try it in our neighborhood! Perhaps when it warms up a bit...

  3. oh, that really does look like fun!!! what a cool idea!

  4. sounds like a lovely evening.
    and what pretty punch!
