The dining room has been decked with bows of greens and reds with touches of blue! This year our dining room is looking somewhat elegant with all of its pretty sparkles of silver along with tons of greenery. I am really loving the idea of creating my own garland and centerpiece with freshly snipped greens. It brings such a wonderfully festive look as well as a fabulous aroma to our dining room.
The dishes I am using for our Christmas Eve dining is the set my parents bought when they were first married 59 years ago. This set has actually been boxed up for the 20 years my parents lived in Florida. So I thought it would be nice to bring them out and use them for this first Christmas with my parents who are now living up here in the northeast.
The table cover is nothing more than a tartan plaid throw with lots of blues and greens.
Candlesticks in globes set on stacked dishes add some interest to the table setting. A strand of silver beads is draped on the top plate.
Miniature sleds bearing three truffles will greet each guest as they sit down for their meal.
Fresh greens everywhere!
The sideboard is filled with silver pieces accented with arbor vitae and boxwood. Doesn't it sparkle?
And I am ready for Christmas company!
