Hello sweet friends !
I had so much fun creating this table for a luncheon today. I have a collection of Nutcrackers that started several years ago when my mom gave me an adorable, chubby one with drums for my birthday in Oct., I immediately bought a tall one and then the rest is history.
I also added a German traditional 'Incense Smoker' hubby also gifted me on a birthday many years ago.
I was in the mood for some baking such as a 'German Kugelkopf' bread and a small fruit cake.
The 'German Kugelkopf' recipe came out of the Nordic Ware bundt mold I bought a few years ago. It is very delish. I usually leave the raisins in Kirsch liquor the day before, or any other nice liquor of choice and I add walnuts too, in order to make it more festive.
Without much ado, here is my fun tablescape for this Christmas holiday.

Alejandro warmes his piece of bread and adds butter and marmalade like any other bread and it is great too !
