Casual Dining in the Kitchen Breakfast Nook

I know, I know, Christmas is over but I have been so busy that I never got to post this until now. I hope you don't mind. I am just relieved that I finally got to take down and put away all my Christmas d├ęcor.
Just like I said, it is a very casual simple table.
 The plates came from Home Goods, I think in Baton Rouge or Jackson, I cannot remember anymore.
 I love everything about them, the shape, the print, the postal mark and the colors.

 My daughter, who lives next door, and I take turns in cooking dinner and this was just one of those days when it was my turn.
The 3 kids eat on the kitchen bar.


 I love the snowmen S & P shakers.

 It is just an everyday casual dining and we just get our own drinks from the fridge, so no need for stemware here.

I hope you all had a nice holiday. We did too except that now, my 97 year old mom is sick and is in the hospital so we are flying to Chicago  to see her and help with her care.

My daughter and granddaughters are currently in Germany, and it is so difficult. Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing over at Celebrate Your Story!

  5. So cute. I am sorry to hear of your mother that is very stressful especially when you have to travel to her. I love your table. Jennifer

    Great job..........and I love Home Goods too....hard to come
    home with nothing when you go there.
    Blessings, Nellie

  15. Christine, I love your table! The runner and placemats are SO pretty and the dishes are fabulous!!!! I love them too. That is nice that your daughter and you can take turns cooking dinner! Praying for your Mom. Hope she FULLY recovers and you have her for many more years. XO

  18. Christine, I LOVE those square Christmas plates. If I had more storage, I'd be looking for some of those. If I run across some at a good price, I may just buy them and find storage for them. Your table looks pretty.
