My thought was to have a holiday party this year, but as in years past I dragged my feet and now it’s too late to plan and invite. Instead, I am having a few dinner parties that will give us opportunity to spend time with friends we haven’t seen for a while. Maybe those will be even better than a house full of partyers!
I liked the burlap that was on the table Thanksgiving. It had a homey feel that was very comfortable, so why not use it again and tie it this time around with ribbons having the traditional winter reds and greens?
I bought this piece (is it a candle or candy mold?) years ago just because I liked it, but I rarely can figure out how to use it. On the burlap and with the holes filled with greenery and candles, it gives the table a rustic, woodsy look.
As for dishes, what better choice than the much loved, familiar Spode pattern that fits right in with the woodsy look of the centerpiece? They were a gift from my mother oh so many years ago, and I never tire of using them
and place cards sit atop the reindeer’s antlers. Would you believe I just found these in a drawer, never used though I bought them several years ago at Pottery Barn. Sometimes you just forget what you have!
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
