Christmas Eve Dinner Table

 I hope you all had a Blessed and enjoyable Christmas. We had a Christmas party early, on the 19th because some of my friends were working on Christmas and some went on a skiing trip. So, for Christmas eve, John, I and Debjani, a friend visiting from New York had a nice quiet dinner for 3.
 
I set the table using my black and platinum Biltmore in "Holland Platinum" pattern. I thought the medallion in the center mimics that of a snowflake.


Doesn't the snowflakes on the coconut cupcakes match the medallion on the plates?
Keeping up with the silvery motif, I used my faux diamond and silver napkin rings and pewter flatware. I should have used silver flatware but I was lazy to dig them out and these were already in the kitchen.
 
I was so glad to have these napkin, I really like them and they wash and dry very well and they look elegant on the table.

No tablecloth necessary. I just started with a sequined placemat, followed by a fluted silver plate charger, then the Biltmore "Holland Platinum" dinner and salad plates.
I  cut some holly berries from outside, gathered a few silver balls and with 2 tapered candles and my cupcakes, I had a festive centerpiece.


I used black goblets and clear crystal stems.



Hope you enjoyed our simple table. Now, it is time to prepare for the New Year. If you are traveling, stay safe. I hope the new year brings everybody and our families, more blessings, happiness, peace, love and health.
 
Thank you for the pleasure of your visits. And thank you to the hostesses.
