A Christmas Get Together

This was our Christmas Day 2016 table in the making. Every year, we’d always struggled to find enough chairs, borrowing them from neighbors or our restaurants. Placed different size and shape tables together to create a long one. Basically a nightmare! So finally last year, a light bulb went out and I called a local rental company. For a pretty decent $100 (not bad for Christmas Day!) we rented a 8-foot long table and 10 chairs. Soooo much easier!!! And more beautiful.

Table cloth is by Ikea, reindeer by Target, plates by Ikea, orange cloth napkins by Pottery Barn, pink cloth napkins by West Elm. Succulents I had got the night before as a center piece. Et voila’!!! Simple, easy and festive!

This year, there will be more of us at our table. Table & chairs have already been ordered at A&S Chairs, Brooklyn. They were lovely and easy to work with.

I can’t wait to show you what I’ll do for the table this time around. I am going a completely different direction.
