Our Christmas Table

Is Christmas already over?!  Say it isn’t so!  Our Christmas was so wonderful, spent with both my family and Jimmy’s, watching James play with the presents his Grandparents spoiled him with, and eating way too much!  How was your day?  Do you feel like it’s over too soon too?  But we still have a few more days of December, so I’m keeping Christmas alive here a while longer:) We hosted Christmas dinner at our house this year (a first for us).  Everyone helped out in the kitchen and the atmosphere was casual and relaxed.  We got to use the formal dining room that so often is neglected.  I used red, white, silver and a touch of light blue on the table.  The tablecloth, napkins and runner are from Cost Plus World Market.  I recently realized that World Market has some awesome table linens.  I got my Thanksgiving table runner there too. image I found the candle holders at Target and pretty red carnations at the grocery store.  image image Our wedding china (Ralph Lauren) was paired with red chargers from Wal-Mart and red and silver napkin rings from Crate & Barrel. image image The candy cane ornaments were a Home Depot find. image After the Christmas dinner came and went and leftovers were had on Sunday, I’m still feeling quite lazy and not too sure I’m ready for Monday.  Are you feeling the same way?  I don’t want this long weekend to end! ********** If you missed it, you can enter to win a Silhouette SD machine here.  Winner will be announced January 1, 2011.  **********

    Your table is gorgeous, Megan. I love that you paired your china with the charger from WM (I was thinking about those too). Just goes to show that you CAN be chic while saving some money at the same time. 🙂

    I did feel like it was all over too quickly. Even though our tree is REALLY dry, I think I'll keep it up a few more days. 🙂

    The table setting was beautiful. I love the runner from World Market (and yes, their table linens are awesome). And, you know how I love Mercury glass!! Glad you all enjoyed your time together.

    Girl I do NOT want the holiday weekend to end. If only there wasn't year-end craziness at our office, I would be taking the week off and my butt would be in my pj's right now! 🙂

    Looked beautiful my dear! I, too, am holding on to the weekend. I keep begging the hubby to stay home from work today! So nice to not have any running around to do. Sounds like you had a wonderful holiday and they must have loved staying in their pretty guest room!
