I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.
Ours was absolutely perfect.
I just simply didn't get around to setting my tables
early enough this year to share BEFORE Christmas came,
but by golly I still want to share!
I hope you all aren't TOO terribly sick of Christmas yet,
I am just so slow getting posts done, sorry!
This was designated as the adults table:
Christmas Day was so gorgeous -
bright and sunny, and we woke to a snow-covered yard.
How I ♥ having a beautiful White Christmas!
My guests freaked out about using our real silk napkins
until I told them I found them at a second hand store.
(Well, they still freaked out, but maybe a bit LESS.)
Here are a few more Christmas things around this room
that you haven't seen:
A signed and numbered oil painting:
I have a slew of real antique yellowed large music sheets,
many are French and some of German but most are English.
This is the first project I ever used with them yet -
I have other ideas, time will tell if I ever get my crafty on.
Here is my old huge wreath that I use indoors
since I began putting up real evergreen ones.
I think I may have to share my simple outdoors
Christmas decor before the new year arrives!
The kitchen dinner table was designed for the kids to use -
the youngest niece is 10 now
so no more using plastic is necessary anymore!
Their salad plates could match the grown-ups,
but their table is more bright and fun.
And their napkins are simple cotton NOT SILK.
And they weren't given wine glasses.
I just realized that I ended up adding a plaid cotton napkin
scrunched up base for that pedestal candle to "ground" it visually.
Apparently I never took a good pic of after I did that, oops.
But you can kinda see it here:
Here's my whimsical hot beverage serve-yourself station:
Right next to it in the old hutch
my guests could find our Christmas Tree cups & saucers
so helping themselves was a cinch!
Salad plates: Mikasa
Christmas Tree Cups: Nikko
Red Wine Goblets: Martha Stewart
As always, thank you for your visit!
