Wow, it’s so great to be back! My computer hard drive decided it was time to fry about a week before Thanksgiving and I was computerless until Christmas when my sweet family gave me a new laptop. I’ve been slowly learning how to use it and trying to get used to not having a mouse.
I’m so happy to be able to once again join Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for another Tablescape Thursday. Don’t you want to join us too?
A few days before Christmas, I invited my mother, two aunts and a cousin to have lunch with me. Today, I’m sharing photos of the table I set for the luncheon.
I started out with a dark green tablecloth and then layered a white lace tablecloth on top. For the centerpiece, I began with a golden sleigh filled with pinecones and greenery. I placed it in the center of a plain wreath. Then I began adding greenery, berries, golden ornaments and feathery birds. Golden swirling ribbons are the final touch to the centerpiece.
The place settings consisted of gold baroque chargers, forest green dinner plates, and swirled glass soup bowls. Individual green butter dishes with crystal handled butter servers were placed next to each plate. Anchor Hocking Forest Green iced tea glasses and sherbets completed each setting.
A Forest Green depression glass tea pitcher was placed on the end of the table. Alongside the pitcher, I placed a bowl containing small gifts for each family member. Each received a Christmas ornament that I chose to compliment their styles of decorating.
The island in my kitchen was set up for desserts.
It was was cold and rainy, but sitting down to lunch with my family members warmed up my day. We laughed, we gossiped, we enjoyed a delicious meal …it was wonderful sharing this moment in time with family!
I hope that each of you had a wonderful Christmas! Thanks for visiting!
