Wow! It has been a busy week with trying to finish the decorations, doing a little Black Friday shopping along with everything else that needs to be done! That’s why I’ve been missing in action this week. I did take a break to put together a Christmas tablescape.
For the centerpiece, I pulled in a few gold pieces along with a cluster of crystal candlesticks.
The green wine glasses were a recent find at GW. The iced tea glasses are made by Mikasa.
The green and red plaid placemats were from a clearance sale at the dollar store several years ago. I LOVE, LOVE how they look with the place setting!
Using a red charger, I topped it with the holly Christmas plates from Gibson. Do you recognize the red plate? They are from the set of Royal Ruby that I found at GW. You can read about that here. As a matter of fact, I got the holly plates the same day. I had seen them a couple of time but really didn’t need any more Christmas dishes but I knew they were look great with the Royal Ruby and for 59 cents each, you just can’t beat that?
I used gold flatware and brass napkin rings to bring out the gold trim of the plate.
A little candlelight…..
good food and good company makes for an enjoyable night!
TIP OF THE DAY: I have tried NUMEROUS things to help boiled eggs peel easier and I have finally found the trick! Baking soda! We have fresh eggs and they are so difficult to peel but when I put them on to boil, I sprinkle baking soda in the water. After they cool off, I start by cracking them on the broader end because there is usually an air bubble which helps get the peeling started!
