Christmas Eve Dinner, 2016 with 12 Days of Christmas Dinnerware

Merry Christmas to all!

I hope you are all spending a wonderful holiday with your families. As for us, we had an early Christmas celebration with the kids a few days ago but for this Christmas, we are staying home with guests from Ohio, my DH's nephew, Jesse and his beautiful wife, Christy with their 4 lovely children.
 I set the table with my 12 Days of Christmas dinnerware. I think this set is my favorite Christmas set, but then, I say that about the others too, lol. I have owned the salad plates for years but just got the dinner plates this year. I watched them from Williams Sonoma on line for years, but every time I order them, they were always sold out. Luckily, I caught them this year before they ran out.
I have a matching 12 days of Christmas table cloth and napkins but I have been so busy that I decided to use the same table runner from my last tablescape. Besides, they are kept in the guest room closet and I did not want to disturb our guests.

 I just love how cheerful this dinner plate is.
 I only used salad plates 1 to 8 this time. Let me show you a few.

 2 turtle doves!

 Santa and snowman S & P shakers on a sled.

 We had ham, crab omelet, Caesar salad, rice and stuffed clams.

Our dessert table
 We had apple pie, key lime pie, fruit salad and iced brownies, served with coffee.

 Spode Christmas Tree tea set.
Thank you so much for your visit, especially during this very busy season. I hope the coming New Year brings you all peace, prosperity, health and love.

Special thanks to the hostesses of these fun memes.

Christine: Your table is so beautiful! I've also had a "thing" for the 12 Days of Christmas" but have never bought dishes with this theme! They are gorgeous! I love the red crystal goblets, too! And, with your amazing cooking, I can only imagine what a treat for your guests this was. The desserts look fabulous! I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas season and all good things for the coming year!

I love those dishes and have them too but haven't brought them out in too long! Your table looked so festive and I'm sure your guests loved it. I was a at Pottery Barn/Williams Sonoma outlet store and they carry the 12 days of Christmas dishes there. I was surprised because I didn't realize it was still being produced.
Best wishes to you and your family for a Happy and Healthy New Year!
