Twas the night before Christmas...and we will be spending it with family and friends.
To be more specific...we are having 34 people coming for Christmas Eve dinner!!
We have our traditional feast of the seven fishes.
The inspiration for the tablescape color scheme in my dining room came
from my dishes.
I spied these dishes at Home Goods and knew they would be so fun for Christmas.
Notice the coordinating place cards - I made those using my Silhouette machine.
My centerpiece is simple yet elegant using an aqua ceramic deep pasta bowl and I filled it with silver and aqua ornaments. In the center is a tall, white candle.
Crystal candle stick holders with aqua candles are placed on festive mirrors.
At one end of the dining room are two mini Christmas trees.
I decorated the trees, which I got on clearance at Target, with the remaining ornaments and plenty of ribbon I got for 70% off at Michael's.
As you can imagine, 34 people do not fit in my dining room.
Four will be at the counter, ten more at the kitchen table, five more at a table downstairs plus a special table for our three year old guests.
The festivities begin at 4pm today.
How about you? How are you spending Christmas Eve?
Merry Christmas to all!!
