Christmas Eve Supper

Today, I am busy preparing for tonight's Christmas Eve Supper with Todd's folks.  We host the dinner every year, and always look forward to time with family.  Tonight, we will be using my new Williams Sonoma Botanical Wreath dinnerware.  It just screams Northwoods holiday to me!

The colors for tonight are red, gold, burgundy, and green.  Festive and appropriate for the evening, I think.

If you want to make individual name cards for each place setting, a quick Google images search will find any theme you want to use.  I'm looking for a bit of a northwoods Victorian feel for the table, so chose these cute birds in the pines.

Green candles in red hurricanes will set the mood when we sit down to our prime rib dinner

The topiaries are new, just couldn't resist them.  I can't ever resist topiaries.  Love the burgundy ribbon in them that ties in so nicely with the burgundy border on the table runner.

Cute little glittery pine cone place card holders pull the pine cones on the plates out and into focus.

Pinecones everywhere!

The Fiestaware gravy boat will be filled soon with Grandma Blanche's famous gravy for our PINK MEAT aka prime rib

These goblets are new for Christmas from my niece's boyfriend, Nick.  Love them.

Looks like home
