Holiday BBQ at the Bungalow

Last night, we had our first party at the bungalow: a holiday BBQ for Kent’s office.

Since it was a BBQ, we wanted to keep the decor rustic and picnicky. Our centerpiece inspiration was this one from Just a Girl Blog, a wooden box filled with candles and live greenery.

Christmas-table

Our dining table, however, is square, so a centerpiece like hers wouldn’t quite work. And since we couldn’t find a square box or basket (no time to make one!), we decided to go a slightly different route, as you can see in the pictures below.

Finally, Kent’s office decided to exchange white-elephant gifts. Again, as the pictures show, Kent took the white-elephant gift literally. 🙂
