I wanted to keep it simple with a brown, white, green theme. White Rose Point Pope Gosser china, Avalon silverplate (sweet pattern that I will give someday to Tevis Rybin who loves Avalon, Catalina), Sav on Crafts faux wood chargers (3.49 each - what a bargain). Irish linen table cloth and napkins from an Antique Mall in San Francisco years ago, garden roses set in water glasses (Ina Garten reminds me to keep it simple and use what you have), oversized snowglobe with red bird (Pier 1 2010).
Sideboard features martini shakers and goblets found years ago at some flea market. They will be filled with the most delicious EggNog Martinis (recipe to follow.) Believe me, these are the best holiday drinks you will ever have! Friends inquire about them all year long!
Looking forward to seeing your pre-Christmas table. Can't wait to catch up with my kitchen cabinet. Great women! Great blessings!
