Are you finished with your shopping, presents wrapped? Then it must be time to sit down for dinner.
I pulled out my Mary Englebreit dishes from years ago to set the table.
I have four plates and two sizes of candy dishes. I paired them with red chargers, a gift from my friend Terri and Christopher Stuart Batalha White dinner plates.
Candy canes, English poppers and jingle bell wreaths accent the place settings.
Luckily candy canes come in flavors other than mint.
The napkin rings are tree ornaments that have never been near the tree.
Are you thirsty after your long day? Water and a frosty martini in green depression glass.
Another piece holds a candle in the snow for the centerpiece.
Santa seems to have lost one of his boots.
Dinner is ready. Sauted asparagus, and Chicken Marsala over mashed potatoes. For dessert vanilla ice cream with dark chocolate or caramel sauce. Yummm.
After dinner we can curl up on the sofa in the ME quilt and watch a Christmas movie.
Don’t forget to leave milk & cookies out for Santa.
Remember - the most important gift to give for Christmas is your heart. The gift that needs no wrapping paper, ribbons or bows is always the right gift.
May you and your family have a blessed Christmas.
Stitch at you Soon,
Partying with -
