Welcome to another dinner at our house!
We are celebrating this week! My husband just found out Monday, he passed his FE exam!!!
He had studied for months (and I mean months) and took it in October and got his results on Monday!
We were already having friends over Friday night, and now we have that much more to be grateful!
My runner is two place mats (39 cents each after Christmas clearance at Target last year.) I like them with the napkins, also from Target clearance last year.
I set up my dessert near the Advent trees. I'm using my Winter Berry (from Target 2007) and Christmas Paisly (Cracker Barrel 2010). The cake plate is also from Target Christmas clearance, but I might have bought that before my oldest was born. The pie server is new from World Market.(On sale via coupon...25% off my purchase because I signed up for WM explorer...Do it!! You get coupons all the time...like all dishes half off for 3 hours last Saturday!)
I'm serving Tortilla Soup and Taco Soup, so I'm using my Italian Countryside soup bowl this week.
My friends are bringing guacamole and chips and rice, so I have these cute Winter Berry bowls, also from Target ready to be filled!
My grandmother's silver soup spoons...
I like things that coordinate--not necessarily match. The berries in the centerpiece, the berries in the napkins and rings, the berries in the cake plate and dessert plates and bowls...
the greens in the napkins and 'runner'...
the reds in the goblets, the glass plates, the candles, the berries, the forks...
I can't believe it's almost Christmas! I've enjoyed looking at your homes and tables the past couple weeks. Thanks for inviting me in to your homes and coming to see mine.
May your days be merry and bright!!!
