Two Christmas Tables~

I only put up my Christmas adornment 12 nights before Christmas.....a tradition handed down from my mother,  so in the meantime....I played with two Christmas tablescapes and enjoyed decorating my beautiful church.

This past week I hosted two Christmas lunches and here are a few photos.

I really do love playing with dishes!!


All decked out in silver, blue and white.....

Shortbread cookies as place settings....

My gorgeous friends who are my greatest supporters all year round joined me for lunch at the blue table.....
The second one, I just changed the colour scheme .....all red, silver, gold and a touch of St Nick!

   Two little ones joined us, these were for them....

Deconstructed Caramel Tart!

All my cousins enjoying the sunshine before lunch.....

See you soon!


  1. Oh my goodness, I am blown away by the beauty of your Christmas tables! I would give my eye teeth to have a place at either one of them... although the blue-and-white is just absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for visiting my blog - I am so glad to have found yours!

  2. Thank you, your mom told me about your stunning blog...I will be visiting some of those gorgeous places soon!

  3. Your table settings were beautiful! I used to LOVE setting a pretty table but I've become a bit lazy now. I must say, you have prodded me into doing at least ONE pretty table this holiday season :) You have a beautiful, tropical-looking garden and it was super to see all your guests enjoying themselves. Those littlies must have been so excited to see their special setting :)

  4. Such fun! Beautiful tables - lovely post

  5. Beautiful! As I am a blue lover, I'll take that one as a first choice...but it was tough! Gorgeous! Love the lights under the tulle!

  6. I'm going to lunch at your house! Lovely! Happy Tea Day!

  7. Hello Shel,
    Your tables are lovely but as it is the Christmas season, I really like the red one today. Playing with dishes is so much fun, isn't it? The deconstructed caramel tart looks yummy! Thank you for joining me for tea today and I wish you a delightful week.

    Christmas blessings,

  8. Very pretty...I like the cookies as placecards...

  9. Beautiful tables! I love the blue stemware.

  10. Great tablescapes! I am partial to red so that's my favorite. Your Christmas crackers are beautiful too! I've never seen any with such pretty wrapping.
