New Years Day–Family Fun

( photos courtesy of our daughter)

Each year on January 1st our family prepares an ethnic meal, but this year we decided to  add a little twist and do our own version of a medieval dinner.

All was not true to historical details, but it certainly was fun!

The girls went thrift store shopping for their outfits, and we tried some medieval recipes found on the internet.

The men sported swords from our grandson's collection.

We all missed the use of forks…only spoons and knives were allowed, and using bread slices as cutlery proved to be a challenge.

Lots of laughs, good conversation, and thankfulness that a new year started by being together.

What a fun evening you had celebrating New Years Day. The grandkids look great in their costumes. May I ask the name of the china pattern that the pear is in? It looks really old and is very pretty.

What a fun idea! The costumes are just wonderful, but eating sans forks would be a challenge for sure.

Wishing you a Happy New Year, Millie!
