Ellie Wildermuth opened up her home for the La Cañada’s Noon Kiwanis Club for its annual holiday party. Both inside and out, Ellie’s La Cañada Flintridge home was decked out for Christmas and it was beautiful!

The Christmas elves in charge of the kitchen were Terry and Woody Walker. They were pouring the wine and keeping other beverages chilled. Terry also was in charge of the dinner bell.

After guests said their hellos while nibbling on hors d’oeuvres, there was a sit-down dinner for all that included tri-tip, chicken and lots of side dishes. Festive cupcakes were served for dessert.
