Table is set...

A Grace for Christmas Day Dinner

Father, We thank Thee for this day.
Bless all we do and all we say.
May we each enjoy Thy blessings great
As Jesus' Birth we celebrate.
And may the love that we share here
Remain throughout the coming year.

Welcome to my Christmas dining room.
I have the table set...or I think so.;-)
May tweak a bit but this is my trial run.

Using my vintage Homestead China.

These plates just say Christmas to me.
The glasses my Dad collected and gave me.
Using a mix of family silverware, plaid napkins, ribbon place mats on DH's Grandmother's table cloth.

All the small snow folks plates have different ones on them.
They were a gift one year from our son and his wife.

This pretty center piece is a dish garden.
So festive. It was a Thank You gift from Aunt Dot's two children.
My crystal hurricane candle holders.
Using the candy cane candles nestled in small pine cones.

This very old Santy Claus was Aunt Alma's along with all the white deer I have sitting around the center piece.

Hope you enjoyed this peek into where we will be having our small dinner
on Christmas Day.
We will eat early as son and wife have to go to her parents in late afternoon.
I cooked the Country Ham today.
We will also have roast beef and gravy, green beans, collard greens, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, fruit salad, homemade rolls with pecan tart and coffee for dessert.

Goodness hard to believe it will be here in just 4 days!!!
