Every year on Christmas Eve, our family hosts a prime rib dinner. It’s the one time each year we get all fancy.
I usually use these Christmas dishes. I bought these at Walmart eight years ago. I have some other Christmas dishes I will feature tomorrow when I set my Christmas breakfast table.
I have added a few things this year. I was lucky enough to find these Mikasa, crystal, candlestick holders at my local thrift store for only two dollars each. I bought the cream-colored napkins at Home Goods this summer. They are so wonderfully versatile, I use them all the time. I made the tree used as the centerpiece.
Remember the Christmas project I wanted to create but was having a lot of trouble getting it to turn out the way I wanted? Well, this is not it. I tried and tried to get that to work but it would not. My husband came up with a great idea that would work today. Too late to try this year but maybe next year. Anyway, back to this tree. It is a bit like my original idea but uses much lass negative space. This is a yarn Christmas tree. I will share a tutorial with you soon.
And last but not least I used some pillow cases and tulle to “fancy-up” our dining room chairs. I had our little ones at the table so I wanted a “fancy” that was worry free and cheap. I wanted to spend money on presents not the table! Merry Christmas!
