Hello sweet friends !
Well, this is my formal Christmas table setting for this year. I used the "magnolia" motiff china I brought back from Madrid while visiting our daughter last May. I loved it as soon as I saw it and I thought immediately of using it for a Christmas dinner because of all the green and white in the pattern.
I might add it's Portuguese made just for their famous store, "El Corte Inglés."
I used our heirloom 'French Art Nouveau' centerpiece my dear MIL left us, that was in my FIL's family always and it turned out it has gold initials of the family name, just as ours is, C.A.
We are going to celebrate Christmas, baby Jesus's birthday, along with the birth of our baby Lorenzo together with daughters Sofia and her family and Alexandra and her family, who is coming from Madrid to meet the new and only baby nephew.
I want to wish each one of you a wonderful CHRISTMAS, filled with joy and love, along with your dear ones and a very healthy, happy, prosperous and blessed 2019.
|Aren't the 'Magnolias' so pretty on the bone china plates !|
|I acquired two pretty bright gold reindeer candle holders several years ago and they add a bit of glitz to the setting.|
|Here you can see, sitting in the side table a 'St. Patrick's Cathedral,' as the one in NYC and that's why I love it.|
|The etched crystal stems are Venetian.|
|The little trees are Salt & Pepper shakers.|
|The beautiful antique French marble table separates the living room from the formal dining room and it's done up for the festivities as well.|
|As most of you that follow me know, by the window is our breakfast area table flanked by two buffets.|
The chandy has small wreaths and candy canes in each candelabra to make it more festive.
