My Christmas Tablescape 2018

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 Ingl├ęs."

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. 

I used my lovely satin embroidered tablecloth and a plaid runner on top with the same tones, I found it for $1.99 on sale, lol..

The china used for Christmas this year is the Portuguese one I brought from Madrid last May; as it has mostly green and white Magnolias.

This beautiful heirloom French "Art Nouveau" I love, it's early last century, comes from Alejandro's father side of the family, thus it has the initials stamped A-C in the white oval in front of the bowl, just like hubby's and mine, reason why dear MIL left it to us. We were so lucky  ! 

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.

You can see in this photo how the center table creates a foyer in between the living room and formal dining room, although we have an inside entrance to our apartment.
I also decorated the chandy above the table with small red wreaths on each candelabra. 

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.

"Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous new year 2018.

May God, in his infinite glory, bless you and yours always."
