In 2012 and 2013 I went with one of my best friends, Jill. The 2012 theme was Believe in the Magic of Christmas. We were impressed by the event as we walked in! A fun place setting with sparkling juice that had a hibiscus flower! To end the event we received a gift of a snowman necklace.

2013 the colors were purple, my favorite! That years gift was a neckless of two mini ice skates. The food did not disappoint, either!
They also have carolers since a few songs to get us in the holiday spirit! I am very bummed that I will not get to go this year. Hopefully I remember to save some money to attend next year to catch up with Jill!
