Christmas Beginnings…

I’m joining Kathleen at Cuisine Kathleen with my first Christmas table for Let’s Dish.

We even had a full on Christmas dinner at this table the Saturday after Thanksgiving with Josh, Laura and Dan. It’s a long story. The recipe for this Apple Butternut soup will be shared in December on the Mennonite Girls Can Cook blog.

Today I reset the table to my more casual everyday Christmas theme. I hope to share that next week.

More decorations went up today. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at our house…

  1. Your table is gorgeous. I love the tiered piece. The soup sounds so good!

    Looking forward to seeing your decorations. Slow moving here…but we are getting there.

  2. I must know where you got the little bead topped candle votive holders! They would go perfectly with my Candlewick dishes! Your table is so festive. The colors are perfect for the season. Just lovely πŸ™‚

  3. Dang, girl….you came out slammin’!!! I love the red and green glassware used in tandem. That makes a really pretty presentation. I also love the way you extended the centerpiece with the fresh greenery. Nothing like that fresh smell to get you in the Christmas spirit!!!

  4. Everything about your table scape is so pretty. I love the traditional use of reds and greens – it works so well and always looks nice! I wish I could say I was as “decorated” as you are by now..maybe I need to put my computer away for a few days this weekend and get started on Christmas!! It seems I am having trouble getting in gear?!
    Making caramel popcorn tonight for a staff party tomorrow – maybe that will give me a boost?

  5. I always love to come here to see what’s stirring in your end…Come over and help me decorate…I love your table setting. Can’t wait to see the rest.
    My stuff will start coming out this weekend.

  6. Enjoyed catching up! So glad you had a nice Thanksgiving…looked delish! Katie was lovely “all dolled up” for the ball. I’m sure they enjoyed it. Your Christmas table is beautiful, as always. You certainly have a flair for tablescapes.

    • Vee, did WordPress add some sort of video to the end of my post. I can’t see them and I don’t put them there. I always hope if they do that it’s nothing offensive to me or my readers…

  7. You really know how to set a table! I am trying to envision where you store all your dishes and decor for every occasion. Wish you lived closer (I’d be borrowing:)

  8. That is beautiful! I love those goblets, so festive! Aren’t you the early bird, a pretty Cmas table Tgiving weekend. Good way to get started.
    Thanks for linking to Let’s Dish, have a blessed Sunday.
