Aren't collective nouns fun?
Like a murder of crows or a deck of cards or a parcel of penguins – I find them quite amusing.
So I decided to see if there is a collective noun for teachers (since our staff Christmas party was here at Candy Cane
Sweet Bee Cottage) and the best I found was a staff of teachers or a faculty of teachers. Kind of boring, don't you think? Maybe we could come up with a better one. Any ideas?
(Mentioned this to Worker Bee and he's come up with a scholastic of teachers.)
my BIG IDEA for the party was a hot chocolate bar.
I bought this great mug/glass rack at Cost Plus World Market and I just love how it displays the mugs.
So many things to add to the hot chocolate.
Yummy little libations to liven up that hot chocolate.
Candy canes for stirring...
hand grated chocolate shavings...
and mini marshmallows were perfect toppings.
So.........can I interest you in a mug of hot chocolate?
Hope you feel welcome, warm, and cozy!
P.S. For the sake of telling the whole story - I recommend not using a coffee urn that still has some coffee residue - there was a faint taste of burned coffee that was hard to ignore. Oh well - the idea was good and I'll just do it better the next time.
P.P.S. I also should mention that the cute background in the little silver frames is from a wonderful etsy shop called Fudgy Brownies. She sent me the digital file in record time. Love the patterns and colors!
