A Nativity Scene at my Hot Chocolate Setting

Hello sweet friends !

I created this table for a 'Hot Chocolate' afternoon. 

As some of you know, I host a Rosary prayer for eight or ten ladies... sometimes more. Since last February I haven't been able to gather my friends for prayers, as per COVID-19; but we do pray together, the same hour, at our homes, every last Wednesday of the month to keep our beloved tradition.

So, what I want to stress is that we used to have Hot Chocolate with Christmas bread, cake and cookies after our last prayers of December. 

I used to place the small Nativity scene, that I've been doing for the past four years, as before I went all the way constructing an entire town of Bethlehem for my grandgirls, that are teenagers now. So now it's on the coffee table, under glass cloche and for my 2020 setting.

I also placed it for my hot chocolate tablescape, to remember other Christmases with my Rosary friends.

 Just as I would have if my friends were here for the Rosary.

Hope you enjoy it, as it might be my last table before the birth of our "Savior, Jesus Christ." 

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and many blessings for you and your family.

May God the Savior be here soon to save this world from evil.

May no one dies anymore from COVID and may the entire world be able to be vaccinated and cured; whatever the case may be.

Oh dear King of Kings, please protect us and cover us with your Holy and Divine Blood.

God bless us all.

                        My small Nativity under glass. 

I placed my beloved Christmas china from 28 years ago and different chocolate Holiday mugs.

                          From here you can probably notice it's a wreath around the Nativity cloch.


  A few years ago a friend of my mom's cross stitch embroidered these lovely napkin rings for me.

The water glasses are Venetian.

                      My favorite thing to drink chocolate, tea or coffee are Christmas mugs. 

It wouldn't be Christmas without lots of them !

                                      The place setting is moved a little towards the right so the mug doesn't cover baby Jesus.

I love plaid tablecloths come the Holidays. 
I have this one from several years ago.

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

Thanking the lovely hostesses for their great and inspiring parties.

My Christmas Kitchen

 Hello sweet friends !

So this Christmas season has flown, as it is just next week the coming of "Baby Jesus our Saviour." All I can say is we sure thank God that we are still here to celebrate His coming, even if it is by just the immediate family of two, as we are. 

It has been a tough year, very unusual and very uncertain and now it's ending finally. Hope this new year coming is the "healing" year, in more than one way.

The kitchen is the 'Heart of the Home' and it couldn't pass along without been decorated with all the love and joy of Christmas, as it makes our heart grow fonder to see all the Holiday colors, fun and happiness it brings us, as we enter it all day.

Wishing you are preparing for Christmas in a healthy, happy, lovable and joyous way too.

                This is where we spend everyday, sometimes cooking, but for sure eating our dinners in 'our real farm' table.

The table is set for a hot mule, or hot chocolate with Christmas bread.

                     We live in the 14th. floor, so we also have a wonderful view of the avenue and a beautiful river and forest and park at the sides of it. 

It's beautiful for strolls in the morning.


                 The tea set is hand decorated at our former Ceramic Company.

              Here is our little kitchen farm table we love, that also came from our past farmhouse kitchen.

                          Thank you dear ladies for your kind comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for their inspiring parties too.
