We were invited to my friend Connie's house for Christmas dinner. This is Connie seated with her SIL Sally standing behind her.
Connie had gone to much trouble to make a lovely meal AND a beautiful table. Since I don't "do" beautiful tables, I thought I'd share hers with all of you.
First, this is her china hutch in the dining room. It is FILLED with beautiful Christmas china. I am especially fond of the unusual platters - - - the bell and the star.
I'm pretty "gone" over the ruby red Christmas stemware too!
And this is her table. I don't think ANYTHING says Christmas better than red and green, and in THIS case the green is a centerpiece made with fresh pine boughs, candles, and carnations.
It was ALMOST a shame to mess up this beauty by eating.
Oh, but fear not - - - we sat around that table and dug RIGHT in.
My plate did NOT look this pretty and pristine AFTER I ate, I can just tell you!
Thank you, Connie for a beautiful table, a wonderful meal, and great fellowship!
Since this IS a table setting, and since I NEVER do one myself, I'm linking to "Table Top Tuesday."
