Last week we had a little get-together at Mimi's Cottage.
It was so fun to arrange this Christmasy table.
The only thing I bought for it was a dozen white roses that I cut short
and arranged in little vases and small pitchers.
The ivy is trimmings from a topiary I have.
They're stuck in small bottles that I've collected over the years.
The table runner is an old lace curtain that I tea-dyed.
I made a pouch from old book pages. Just sewed them together on
my sewing machine.
They held a glittery Christmas ornament and some candy cane
The saying says, "A good cook knows it's not what's on the table that
matters, but who's in the chairs."
I have to say that I think that it's both what's on the table and what's in the chairs.
I had some plain Jane votives that I embellished with burlap, buttons,
ribbons, and trim.
I made baked pasta and a big green salad.
A friend brought homemade bread sticks.
And everyone brought a Christmas treat for dessert.
So fun to get together at this time of year and visit with family
It's part of the magic of Christmas.
