Merry Christmas

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, although, if you’re like us, the weather is far to warm to wish you a white one!

We’re enjoying a long, lazy breakfast in PJs with wrapping paper underfoot around a dining table that is a little less properly set than this one!

Before the family all gets together for Christmas lunch, we’ll take a long Christmas walk — or, in this year’s case, the smallest of us will be biking!

 We’ll cap off the day with cocktails…

And warm, happy stories around the firelight,

Squeezing in the last bit of merriment, good cheer and, yes, over-indulgence, before the Breville Juice & Blend’s main purpose goes from frozen cocktails to New Year’s resolutions of smoothies and green juice.  We have to say that with a Breville, we love our morning smoothies. We feel like pros when we are able to make the perfect smoothie every time, and they are delicious!

 But, until then, wishing you lots of treats and sweets and happy memories! Merry Christmas, friends!

If we weren’t sure before, we’re positive now that the holidays are here! Saturday alone held Santa brunch, the Christmas parade and a flotilla-watching party. (A flotilla is a boat parade if you’ve never seen one! All the boats get totally decked out in Christmas lights, and make their way down the waterfront. It’s amazing!) We’re feeling full of good-cheer and holiday-ready. But, if you aren’t quite there, let us help you get in the spirit! Check out ten of our favorite rooms that are sure to get you in a holiday state of mind.

Setting the Christmas Table

Good morning, lovely readers! Can you believe how incredibly close we are getting to Christmas? Is it beginning to look like it at your house?

This is our holiday table, all set and ready, with Christmas ornaments at every place. (If you peek into the bookcase, you’ll see our favorite Christmas decoration: A felt nativity from Wisteria that is too sweet for words!)

Do you set your table the same way every year? Is it a bit of a tradition?

 

Or do you come up with something new and different every year?

Do you fill your table with delicious treats, buffet-style, so that all your guests can mix and mingle?

Or do you set each place full of good things for guests to enjoy? Do you go all out with the Christmas accessories and decor?

Or do you keep the table simple and beautiful, suitable for any season?

The perfect flourish in a napkin makes each guest feel special. We love a sprig of something fresh at each plate.

We hope that our favorite holiday tables have given you a bit of inspiration for your own. Thanks so much for making us a part of your day!
