i thought i'd share a few more snaps of our christmas eve table in addition to the one that i posted on instagram. this is the overhead shot i posted. the funny thing is there are no napkins which i didn't realize until everyone sat down so no nice linen napkins this year! 🙈
i got the flowers at whole foods again this year which is a total deal - $3/stem. i added some birch candles and raw wood garland to keep everything looking natural. the vases are recycled glass from pottery barn and i absolutely love them. they can be used in so many places. great purchase!
i put on a linen table cloth from crate and barrel (that i should have ironed!) to protect the table from wine and food spills. i layered a runner on top to keep it from all blending together. i wish i could have left the wood exposed but this table is so fragile. i'm considering having it sealed now.
one good thing about the new table is that it extends and i took advantage and added one leaf so we could all have some more elbow room and the boys easily fit at the corners. i had mini white lights wrapped around the length of the centerpiece and with the overhead lights down, it was really pretty. i love eating by candlelight!
so that's it! it was a fun night filled with good food and good laughs. and now i'm ready to pack it all away 😜😜
