OK, I know, day late.....dollar short. I hope that each and everyone of you had a wonderful Christmas!
Things here in WV are starting to settle down. We did the Mother/MIL exchange yesterday and had a wonderful time just spending time with families. This year I hosted both Christmas Eve and Christmas day, so I was quite busy!
I didn't get to share with you the rest of my Christmas tour, so please, grab a libation and enjoy the pics.
Be safe for the remaining holiday season and Happy New Year! (in case I am a little LATE in telling you)
These are Christmas Ornaments that I used as place markers. This one was for Mother (MIL). I also used them as gift tags. ( I did these cut outs with my cricut machine. It is an awesome machine..great investment)
Their place marker was around a bottle of olive oil that I covered with jute and this was their gift.
I found these acorn ornaments at PB and thought they would make some sparkle to the napkins. You girls know I like bling!
Everyone had a cheese board that had an appetizer on it. Each plate from Johnson Brothers "School House" was sitting on a 12 x 12 tile. Click HERE to see the cheese plate idea.
I had some red wind stemware that I also frosted to match my brandy snifters. Click HERE to see the tutorial of frosting stemware.
A Christmas Ornament was used at each place setting to hold some fresh greenery. Here I used Rosemary.
I hot glued a washer on the bottom so the ornament would not roll around once filled with water.
Appetizers for Christmas Eve was my Cheese ball Snowman and Cajun Crab Dip......
..... and a Cheese ball Tree
Lots of fresh veggies....
and some Bacon Wrapped Bread Sticks.. YUM YUM!
Dinner we had Ham and Turkey, Mac n Cheese, Cocktail Meatballs, and Green Bean and Potatoes.
On Christmas Day I added a Stuffed Pork Tenderloin wrapped in Puff Pastry and Roasted Potatoes.
A little blurry but the salad and dessert table and beverage station.
There were potato salad, deviled eggs, water gate salad, jello salad, home made cookies and candies AND a coconut cake. With lots of wine and eggnog to tantalize our taste buds to the max.
AND some mini shots if you dared.... (did you notice that once we got to the drink pictures that they got blurry?)
Phew! I think that wraps up the kitchen/dinning room tour. If you missed the living room tour. please click HERE.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and took time to enjoy family and friends. We all are so blessed that we have each other for there are so many who don't.
I have a few days before the New Years so hopefully I will get the outside pics posted.
I am joining: Marty's party Tabletop Tuesday. The Tablescaper, Tablescape Thursday
Until the next time,
