Tree Lighting Fun

We had so much fun at last night’s 1st Annual Tree Lighting Celebration. Santa and two of his reindeer came to visit, and we sugared up with hot chocolate and cookies. Add an ugly sweater competition and a little holiday music for all to hear… you’ve got yourself some Christmas cheer.

One of our favorite themes in this vein is the Western Rehearsal Dinner. Nothing screams Aspen like some cowboy hats, laid-back fare and bluegrass music. This rehearsal… Read more
