She also served lamb. So good! We could not have been more happy for girl time. She had poppers for us with gifts inside.
We rocked those silly crowns and then moved on to the gifts! Normally a White Elephant is defined as a gift no one wants that you re-gift. Each person brings one wrapped gift. You determine in what order you will take turns choosing gifts. The first person opens a wrapped gift and the turn ends. The second person then chooses whether to open a wrapped gift or "steal" a previously opened gift. If a person has their gift stolen, they also have the option of choosing a wrapped gift or stealing an unwrapped one. When a wrapped gift is opened, the turn ends. When all gifts have been unwrapped, the game ends! You can imagine how rowdy it gets.
We play with nice gifts so even higher stakes! We set a limit of $30 and people brought gorgeous things! I brought a silver plate leaf server from an antique shop and Shannan picked it and loved it.
Even "Frenchy" the dog though the evening was a hit!
