I know you are probably tired of seeing "the box" but I am still really enjoying using it in different ways. Here is the table setting we had for Christmas...
Once again I used the J & G Meakin "Romantic England" with a Mikasa "Italian Countryside" charger, and Wallace "Louvre" sterling flatware. I added the Noritake "Perspective" water glasses and compotes my mom gave me. We used the compote for a delicious fruit trifle dessert.
I changed out the greenery in the box and opted for sparkly fruit, pine cones, and sprigs of cedar, white pine and boxwood tucked in. I also added some cinnamon sticks. I actually lowered all the candles. There were two layers of styrofoam inside, so I took one out for this arrangement.
I have really enjoyed it this way, and it can stay like this for a while during the winter. It will be very easy to tuck in fresh greenery as needed.
We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Day with services at church, then dinner here with my parents. My brother and sister-in-law came Monday and spent a couple days here, so my parents had everyone here. We had a light snow last night, so that really topped off a nice holiday.
We are still enjoying Christmas and look forward to "Three Kings Day" January 6th.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
