November Rosary Tea & Christmas Decking.

Hello sweet friends !

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your dear families.

We just got back today from visiting our daughter Sofia, hubby and her two girls which are growing up so fast ! 

This table is from my monthly Rosary prayers and humble tea. I'm finished with my 'Christmas' decor, except for a Xmas tree, and that is because I haven't one, I gave it away two C'mas ago, because I needed a new one, but didn't spend the holidays at home for the last two years, nor we will this year.

This December we are expecting 'baby Alonso' (our first grandson and baby boy) from dear daughter Sofia, who will be born around the 20th. of December on. 

Posting today my Holiday table setting for the Rosary of November, plus the Christmas 'mood' is at home for sure now ! 


The first thing I love to take out is our Christmas china to use all the way to mid-January.

I also baked a "Pumpkin Cake" for the Rosary Tea.

Even if I may say so myself, this cake was really good !  

This cake is from blogger Maria. Here is the link to her post about it, if you would  like to make it.
I also decked the buffets on the breakfast and formal dining room.
These dishes were made and hand decorated at our own ceramic factory.

To the other buffet with my white soup tureens I didn't move much, except I just added a bowl with some gold and white pine nuts and a Xmas platter, plus my gold reindeer and tall angel.

I added this year two more 'nutcrackers' to my small collection.

My new addition to my small collection of nutcrackers are the one in the toy horse and the tallest one in green.

I love my "St. Patrick's Cathedral" all lit up.
In real person it's so much prettier and you can see all the way inside to the altar !

Thank you so much for your kind comments, they always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

Happy Christmas Holiday.

My, how pretty is your Christmas China with the Holly design. The red charger plates really provide a focus to the Christmas Tea table!
The bundt cake is so pretty with the candy canes atop.
Wishing you blessings for your new grandson as you await his arrival this month!
