Merry Christmas!

IMG_5107.jpg Christmas is bittersweet for me this year. It will be the first one without my Mom, but I am blessed to be sharing it with other beloved family members.  The Spode dinnerware shown above was a gift from my Mom and Dad 30 years ago when I was newly married.  I treasure it even more this year! Throughout the years, I have added linens, glassware and serving pieces to the collection.  Gold chargers enhance the plates. I’ve chosen a plaid tablecloth  and navy velvet runner to compliment the beautiful Spode Christmas tree pattern.  Crystal and brass candlesticks with white tapers complete the look. I decided to keep the floral arrangement simple and elegant.  Fresh evergreens and white roses provide just the right compliment for the table setting. I can’t wait to celebrate the joy of food and family together at our table!

I extend my sincere hope that you experience all the joys of Christmas with family and friends.  I am thinking of you, Mom (Miss you!), and also looking forward to a Christmas spent with loved ones!






















May you and your families experience the many blessings of Christmas with those you love. I wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year!
