Christmas Dining

Happy Christmas Eve! I have my table ready for Christmas Eve. I think I told everyone we were having lasagna, Salad, bread and wine. I am very excited this year. This is the year we changed it up a bit. We usually do appetizers and punch and sandwiches for Christmas Eve. I suggested a sit down meal this time and we are going to do that. We usually don't use my dining table because it more casual dining. However, now that we are doing a real meal..............I wanted to make up the table. I didn't have much for Christmas-just a mismatch of plates. However, I did have this poinsettia dishes(but only four place settings). I needed six......so I mixed and matched with the dishes I already had............and here is the result.


I didn't have a Christmas tablecloth either. I did have this green stripe tablecloth..........to match my green dishes. I also had this little square poinsettia tablecloth. So I thought if I corner it onto the middle it would make a nice accent piece for the table and jazz it up for Christmas. Pretty good....I feel I pulled a rabbit out of hat trying to come up with things I already had in the house. I almost went out and bought a tablecloth. Luckily I had that little poinsettia cloth. It really does match the dishes.

Again, I just used my Yankee Candle for the centerpiece............and my other candles I already had. I used my Santa napkin ring holders.............and put a candy cane in each one. I have my new Dock station piped ready for Holiday music too. Speaking of.........................................................guess what we got for Christmas a little early for ourselves??? Can't guess? well drum roll please(blummmmmmmm)


Yes, it's a MP3player. We went with the zune. I got the black! Yeah, can't wait to download music and Video and More.


I hope everyone out in blogland has a wonderful Christmas Eve and Day.
