Well, my darlings, Christmas is almost here and I am practically rabid with anticipation! Christmas to me is synonymous with family, love, childhood whimsy....so many things and I truly enjoy it. We have a pretty large family unit (starting with seven, YES SEVEN!! in our immediate), all of whom really enjoy this time of year. Getting together is what we love most. Today's post features how to set your holiday table with traditional fare, or at least my interpretation of it. I hope you enjoy.
I began by setting this lovely sparkly tablecloth. I chose this one specifically because it reminds me of the snow...makes me reminisce freshly fallen snow glistening on a crisp winter morning.
Next, I placed these lovely vibrant red chargers.
I placed these lovely plates next. I just love these. I love this silver-rimmed edge, and the delicate flower detail. These once belonged to my husband's mother, so these hold special sentimental value as well.
Next, the salad plates, stemware, glasses, coffee cups and saucers, and the candle holders.
Finally, I added some freshly-trimmed roses
to my pre-made centerpiece, and added the decorated napkins, and red candles.
