Ahoy Ladies! On Tuesday December 5th the annual Ladies Bridge Club Christmas Party was held at Cathy Friedel’s home. The festivities began at 7:00 pm with 26-members participating. This was the largest number of participants we’ve had in the past few years. As a variety of wines, beers and soft drinks began to flow, there was barely enough table room for all the snacks and desserts. Snacks included a selection of deviled eggs, quiche, shrimp cocktail, crabmeat medallions, crock pot offerings, as well as an array of dips and spreads. A homemade berry pie highlighted the desert table along with a variety of cakes, a beautiful edible fruit bouquet thanks to Roseanne Hoffman, candies, cookies, and brownies.
The highlight of the party is the Pirate gift swap. An assortment of hand bags, canvas totes, a coffee thermos with gourmet coffees, and two soft cuddly throws were stolen multiple times. Last but not least was the hilarious addition of the “cleavage maker” [don’t ask] and the aquamarine mermaid get up.
Old friends and new acquaintances enjoyed the party and the camaraderie. The evening ended by 10:00 pm with ladies drifting out with their new “treasures” and happy hearts to kick off this Christmas season.
