Wow, we are getting so close! Still a few things left to do. I started baking and I don't bake too much because I always tend to have some kind of accident and make a mess. Well, it happened again with the first thing I was making, the fudge. I didn't buy sugar the other day and was trying to scrape out every bit I had and then a clump came tumbling out onto my arms and all over the counter and stove top. So of course I had to stop and clean all that up. I just grabbed by little hand held vac and sucked all the sugar up. Whew! Now I have to go to the store AGAIN!
Well, now let's get back to the post at hand. It wasn't baking. I want to show you the breakfast room table that is ready for our big breakfast on Christmas morning.
Everything I used I had on hand except for the little plaid mittens on the plates. I purchased them at the dollar store.
I used a mix of plaids and checks.
The red checked napkins were purchased from Penney's on sale a few months ago. I tied the napkin with a piece of twine and stuck a candy cane in.
I thought these little stockings would be cute with the silverware stuck in them.
The red chargers are from Hobby Lobby and the white plates were purchased at Target several years ago.
I bought two different patterns of the little stockings.
O.k who took the spoon?
I was going to go buy a long narrow trough thing for the centerpiece, but didn't really need to spend more money just for a tablescape so I remembered I had this metal container I could use.
This is what it looked like before I sprayed it with chalkboard paint.
Excuse my not so good writing on this. It wasn't very easy to write on.
I filled it with a topiary, ornaments and a few sprigs of greenery and topped it off with my little elf.
I dressed up the window with my big Santa face. This one has a red hat and came from Hobby Lobby last year. Tied two little wreaths with burlap ribbon from the each window.
This Santa face is different from the one over the mantel. That one is all white and was purchased at a gift shop several years ago. I was surprised that Hobby Lobby carried these cute ones.
Wrapped the chandelier in holly garland and hung some ornaments.
Getting back to the table, I thought these salt and pepper shakers from Publix would be cute
and my little red butter dish from Anthropologie.
Snowflake goblets from Kroger.
The menu will be:
baked french toast
quiche lorraine and bacon and spinach quiche (Paula Deen's recipe)
bacon and sausage
coffee, juice, milk or water.
I sure hope everyone has the most wonderful and joyful Christmas this year!
