Normally on Christmas Day we (the four of us and my parents) make reservations at a nice restaurant. But it can be quite expensive. So this year, since we moved into the new house, I decided to re-create the holiday brunch at home. And with the money we saved I figured I could get new china, and flatware and table linens.
And a centerpiece.
And new drapes.
Okay, it would probably have been cheaper to go out.
Dining room looking like a home magazine centerfold? Priceless.
This weekend I'll be searching for just the right napkins and holiday motif napkin rings.
