Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Decorating: Luminarias
While I was living in Arizona for a few years, I was introduced to a lovely Hispanic Christmas tradition – Luminarias. Rows of simple, brown paper bags are illuminated by small candles, and weighted down with sand (or gravel, small stones, marbles, popcorn, cat litter . . . almost anything that will add some weight and keep the bag from being picked up by the wind will do).
This is great stuff. Visit the blog and subscribe
PS I use white bleached kraft bags but they are now politically incorrect but I bought 50,000 before bleached paper was an issue.
