An Outlandish Gathering of Sisterhood – A Holiday Ornament & Gift Exchange

At Timeless Sass3nach Journeys, we embrace the sisterhood that accompanies this fabulous novel, Outlander, and when the three of us reflect upon our friendship, it still surprises us how close we have become. The connection to the book series has produced sparks that ignite long lasting relations. We have never experienced anything like it: women celebrating one another, honoring our cherished female roles as wives and mothers, and embracing our own power. We definitely identify with Diana Gabaldon’s character Claire Fraser (strong-willed, compassionate, feisty, and a relentless supporter of loved ones) and undeniably hold her essence within our hearts. The three of us are family and certainly feel fortunate to have such a long-lasting bond with one another.

Through Outlander, we continue to recognize the camaraderie developed. It’s a natural thing to reflect upon our blessings, especially during this holiday season. We are lucky to live in sunny San Diego and to be surrounded by others who love Diana Gabaldon and the show. So in today’s blog, we share our celebration of friendship through San Diego’s Holiday Gift and Ornament Exchange Party.  It has  become an annual event, making it the group’s 3rd one.

Garden Party Decor Inspired by Aunt Jocasta

Spring is nature’s way of saying “Let’s Party!”

-Robin Williams

Garden parties are great for teas, baby or bridal showers- any type of party, really! Spring and summer are delightful seasons in which to host celebrations surrounded by the beauty of nature.

A garden party can be simple or one could go to the extravagant lengths of the garden party in Versailles during Outlander Season 2! Jocasta, Jamie’s aunt, held marvelous parties in later books in the Outlander series. In this article, we share decorating ideas that perhaps she could have had at her parties and that one could also use for today’s celebrations. Sass3 has hosted and attended a wide array of parties, so we have gathered quite a few suggestions.

Modern Party Decor for a 21st Century Brianna

I wonder if Claire ever threw Brianna a Sweet 16 party in the “unknown years” of Outlander between books one and two.  Perhaps Brianna celebrated her kids’ birthdays with parties too.  Well, having thrown a huge celebration for my own daughter recently, I wondered how these parties would have been decorated. Today’s blog is all about affordable party decor.  Although most of the decorations in today’s blog are for a Sweet 16 party, they can really be used for any type of event – Quinceanera, bridal shower, retirement party, 50th birthday, other milestone celebrations, and even an Outlander gathering.
