I don't have the stemware or the salt and pepper or butter plates on some of the tables, and I have one more little table to set, but I'm almost done.

This table, in front of the fireplace is set with a mix of two china patterns. This one is Christmas Village.

The Cellar, O Tannebaum

I also mixed two patterns on this table.

Traditions Holiday Celebrations by Christopher Radko

Wedgwood Winter Festival

All of these tables will be used on Christmas Eve when we host at least 30 people.

I lit one of the centerpieces for this picture.

We only have 12 of us on Christmas day.

Nikko Classic Collection Plate
I can't believe Christmas is almost here. I've got to go finish these tables, set another one, and cook the food to go on these plates. I hope you're more ready than I am. I hope to get time to post our Christmas kitchen and bedroom tomorrow. In case I don't, I want to wish you a wonderful Christmas holiday.

Each table is prettier than the last! I wish I had your energy to last me through our party for 25 on Saturday, then Christmas Eve dinner!

I only set one table for 7. This summer I tripped over 2 boxes of Christopher Radko dinner plates. I do not really have anything that matches those plates, but I am gonna use them this year by golly. I do not even remember which pattern they are. I am hosting Christmas brunch again. When my daughter married, I began hosting brunch so that they could celebrate with us and then head out to Virginia Beach to spend it with our SIL's family. They are not going to go there this year, but we are maintaining that old schedule so that they can celebrate together this year. They have already ordered their beef tenderloin with all of the trimmings for their own romantic dinner for 2! I went to Wallyworld the other day to pick up a couple of games so that we can take time to play a couple of old games that we used to enjoy. So, if you have a hankering for a rousing game of Scrabble or Dominos or a card game or Sorry or Operations just drop on by.

Each one is beautiful. I don’t know how you do it, every year, but you do.
Merry Christmas to you and your family
