The second picture is of our holiday table setting - we had a big holiday dinner because some key family members are going to be "missing" on Christmas and we wanted to share a big holiday meal together. I love the dishes - they are a family heirloom, as well as the silver.

I love what you have done with your place! Please keep sharing your pictures, I love them all!!

THANK YOU!! Great thread!

Well, I'm going to be so busy the next few days I figured I would go ahead and set the tables for Christmas dinner. Since we're having a big German spread, I decided to use the Polish pottery that we bought when we lived in Germany. I think it turned out festive and I even like the kids' table!

you are too funny.

NO!!!, it isn't tacky at all, it is fun. Because if I came over, I'd be waiting for it to come out also, (hey can't take the little boy out of a man)

also, the tablecloth you have, the reddish printed one, is simply gorgeous!


PS: like another poster stated, we all enjoyed very much your thread on your new house, shame we all got in trouble for digressing and talking about your backyard...., but hey, to me in my mind, that was still part of your house.

KA you are just too much! Kudos for having the patience that I clearly lack to ever set-up a table this way. It looks nice and look forward to my Christmas dinner at your house.

My parents have a VERY tiny house and my mom somehow manages to cover almost every square inch of the living room in Christmas stuff.

I hate cooking but since I somehow managed to snag a few days off from work (shockingly), I am going to actually BAKE something. I'm sure everyone will be surprised because I am far from domestic. (Just to be clear---no, not baking from scratch, let's not go too far!) I also cut off more than a foot of my hair so I'm sure people at work will say, "WHOA" when I return. This is my sixth time donating my hair and every year I say, "That's it! I'm too old to grow my hair out and look like a hippie!" But then I get lazy and don't cut my hair. So you can see why I don't get a lot of other things done---but as far as my table goes, I have a Christmas table runner and the same candles I usually have, except I used some of the pieces of the tree that broke off/were cut off to sort of decorate that.

Awwww, thank you - and thank you for donating your hair too. What a great gift that is to someone out there.

I am sure your Christmas and your cooking is going to be wonderful! You've done a lot of work on your place this year - time to sit back and enjoy it with people you love!

Merry Christmas!

Thanks. Hope you enjoyed yours as well.

I actually slept a lot of the day, but that's because I work nights and my body has a hard time adjusting.

I meant to post this earlier in the season. Here is my tree, house, and my ticked off cats (they really did not like their festive attire). BTW, the pics are off my phone and they royally suck.
