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.

 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.

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.

VB "Toys Delight" Plates, Plaid and McKenzie Childs Accessories, First Christmas, 2016 Table

After I finished decorating the house for Christmas, I thought it wasn't complete without a holiday tablescape so here is my first one for the year.
 I started with a Mac Kenzie Childs table runner.
 I already had this centerpiece so I thought I would use it. And since the runner has plaid in it, I decided to use my plaid plate chargers from Williams Sonoma.

 Plaid dinner plates and topped with Villeroy & Boch's Toy's Delight salad plates. I have V & B's matching dinner plates too but I like to mix and match so I did not use them this time.



 I love this crystal stemware I bought from TJ Maxx a long, long time ago.

 I love the ruffled edges of the salad plates.


The red flatware set was an inexpensive buy from Target from way back.
 I think the little people in front of the church are so cute.
 I just bought this little bonnet S & P shaker from a church Christmas bazaar while I was in Illinois a few weeks ago. It was so cheap. I think I paid either 50 or 75 cents.
 

 The napkin rings are MacKenzie Childs. Can you read the little brass tags? I bought them on sale after Christmas last year.
 I just found these reindeers after opening a box that was just moved from Natchez.
 and so with these "JOY" angels holding tapered candles. behind them is one of my favorite Lladro figures, the lady with a jug (not really sure if that is the official name).
