Just The Two of US !
Mr. N and I had Christmas at Thanksgiving with my children in Ky. So , Christmas day it will only be the two of us for dinner. I still wanted dinner to be a pleasant experience for my hubbie and I. Just because there is just the two of us, there is no reason the table can not still be set for a beautiful Christmas dinner. This is my first table scape I have ever done for blogging. I kept it fairly simple but I think it is pretty. The china is Old Country Roses by Royal Albert. I fell in love with this set the first time I ever saw it displayed in Dillard's many years ago. The flatware and the stemware is also The Old Country Rose pattern. The red and white gingham napkins were brand new , and was a yard sale find. I bought the two red candlesticks at a Peddlers Mart in Ky. I had the Santa Clause salt and pepper shakers for years, I am sure they are yard sale finds as well. The poinsettia bowl is a Family Dollar purchase. The two red glasses were yard sale finds. I just sort of took what I had and threw it all together for this tablescape. I am wishing all my friends in blog land a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Keep your family close and cherish every minute, because just the memory of Newtown makes us all well aware things can change in a flash!
