We spent Christmas Day at our friends' house in the country, Julio and Stephanie. We're also neighbors, they live in the 10th. floor of our building and us in the 14th. floor Pt. house. I've known Steph for 30 years, she's also American, from NJ.... since she married my husband's friend Julio and also lives here, in Ecuador.
|I loved how she decorated her bannister and table with the porcelain Nativity.|
|After lots of wonderful hors d'oeuvres she also had more food! This delish dish is called: "chumales"...they're made out of corn with cheese, cooked on the corn leaves...one of my fav Ecuadorian dish.|
|Her adorable native Nativity scene, which she fixed atop the buffet food servings and this really added more charm to the Christmas Day luncheon.|
|She had five tables for eight like this one and she served a buffet, so she had the plates piled up in another buffet. I love her centerpiece flowers.|
Christmas Eve we had a wonderful luncheon at mother's beautiful apartment, where she had her children, grandchildren and great-grands. Her food was terrific too and we exchanged gifts as well. I didn't take any pictures as I was helping her and of course, I was so very busy! Christmas Eve in the evening, was at my house with my family as well...again, I was busier...I'm quite tired, lol.
I'm sure and I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, along with your dear families. Can't wait to see how you spent your Christmas!
Thank you in advance for your visits, I'm sure we're all very happy and thankful for how our Christmas preparations turned out.....but I'm also happy, that it is over, lol!
I will be linking to some great and fun parties. Thanks very much to the gracious ladies that host them too.
