Hello sweet friends:
"I'm dreaming of a White Christmas...just like the ones I used to know."
It is for real, I always dream of a White Christmas, even after so many happy years living here in Cuenca-Ecuador you'd think I'm already used to not having snow this time of year, but no, I still long for it, specially now.
How I wish it was snowing out my window come Christmas, and I would have wonderful memories of my sweet house and childhood back in my home town in Astoria, Queens-NY.
Since it is not possible, my table for this C'mas Eve is going to be all White, I've decided and here is the 'sample'...although the table for the younger ones will be for sure with the traditional colors of this beautiful holiday, the birth of our "Lord Jesus Christ," which in the "Christian World" we are celebrating and what the meaning of Christmas is all about.
Here is my White table, I hope you like it.
|I had a cute and old woven basket I painted in White chalk paint, along with some pine cones from the gardens of our building, so to resemble snow.|
|I used my "White Scapes-Noritake" dishes.|
|I had fun painting the basket and arranging it with fresh greens and pinecones. I love the smell all over the house.|
|I was inspired by these crackled white chargers I found at a pretty home goods store, as they resemble snow flakes, I think. |
The flatware is Reed and Barton bought in Bloomingdale's-Orlando last June.
|The hand etched short stem crystal ware are from Venice-Italy|
|A little 'green bling' in the chandy to make it more festive.|
I always value and appreciate your wonderful comments my friends, as you always make my day!
Thanking the lovely and gracious ladies for the great parties they host each week.
