A couple of years ago I started a Family Feast Book. My husband gave me a leather bound book with blank pages, and that was the beginning of documenting our holiday dinners, and other special dinners with family and friends. The only other item left is to insert the photos that were taken at the time.  I used colored markers and stickers, and mentioned the names of our guests. There is also the yummy menu. Often I like to go back and look at what food was made, who came to the holiday party or BBQ. It's a great way to capture time.


  1. I love this idea. I have one that I'm slowly starting for an Aunt to give a niece. xo

  2. Such a great idea...wish I had done that years ago.....

  3. What a great idea! Would be great for kids too! Love this! and OMG! My post from last night is labelled "Fun.."! we are on the same page this week!

    Have a FUN Day! xoxoxo

  4. I have the exact sort of book but the recipes are housed in plastic sleeves to protect them. Just yesterday, I sent an e-mail to my sister who prepares and hosts an impeccable Thanksgiving a copy from Schoolhouse electric. "Edith" inspired a menu with incredible sweet recipes. I will send to you -
    Have a lovely weekend! Do you have a March page?

  5. Kathleen,

    I LOVE this idea and will be starting one at The Fairfield House beginning with our annual Easter Egg Hunt {one for children and one for adults!} I am always inspired when I come to your blog. :)

    Happy Spring, my friend,
