Christmas Dinner 2011

 I think I've settled on what my Christmas table will look like this year. I've used several of the same things in different capacities over the whole month of December. 
I love using Christmas dishes throughout the month. Just makes the meal more festive.
I added my Cracker Barrel Christmas tree plates to the table this week. I bought them 2 years ago on sale. Why oh why did I only buy 4??? I also am using my poinsettia napkins. I've had these forever and bought them at Target on Christmas clearance.
We plan on having Rosemary Pork tenderloin with my mom's oyster dressing, roasted potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and green beans, pecan pie, pumpkin pie and cheesecake. If I get my act together, I'll make sarmale--a traditional Romanian stuffed cabbage roll. I've made them before, but might save that for the New Year!!
 The platter is also from Cracker Barrel, 2 years ago.

I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, from our table to yours!!
I'll be joining these blog parties!

Very pretty and festive table.
I love traditional reds and greens,
that is pretty much what I use every year. I did one room different this year, all in white, but only cause I had previously made the room white.
I am sure your family and friends loved sitting at this pretty table.
Blessings for a Wonderful Christmas
to you and yours,

Such a pretty table. I love those tree plates, and I always do that too. Buy just a few, then wonder if I will regret it later. But at the time, I just can't justify the money. Nice centerpiece.

Merry Christmas, Meredith! You did a wonderful job on this table, and you were able to make up beautifully for the lack of the 2 other plates! It looks fantastic! (But I do know how you feel. There are times when I want to kick myself for buying fewer items than I KNEW I was going to want in the future!!!) Have a wonderful holiday weekend with your boys! I hope Santa is good to all of you!!!

Lovely Christmas table...and I know that feeling of "why didn't I get more than 4..."

Merry Christmas. Enjoy your Christmas meal at your beautiful table!

Beautiful, beautiful Christmas table. I love your Christmas tree plates. I'm thinking they must be Majollica?? I have red ones similar. That platter is just stunning! Love the pop those red napkin rings give on the white napkins! Have great weekend, Meredith!
