“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth”
December gives us many reasons to celebrate and parties to attend. But in our family, we celebrate more than Christmas in December…it is our son’s birthday! On Friday Seth will turn 30, and by now, you all know how much I love to celebrate birthdays! He is a low-key guy and would never want a big party, so we will keep it simple and have his favorites…home-made manicotti, mixed green salad, focaccia bread, and his cake of choice – red velvet! Let’s take a peek at the table already set for our dinner!I love using the blue/white Christmas tree china and mix it with a few pops of red!
Seth made me a pair of antler candle stands last year and I thought they would be perfect for the tablescape! Cute Fitz and Floyd nutcracker salt and pepper set! The snowmen salt and pepper set was given to me years ago by Seth, love it! I used magnolia leaves cut from our tree to soften the burlap table runner! I always prefer using natural elements! Katy gave me the deer place card holders last year that are actually ornaments…a very special gift! Tartan plaid has been the rage the last couple of seasons!
The napkin rings are ornaments, also! Much cheaper than purchasing the real ones!
“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold
in a setting of silver”
Proverbs 25:11 Thank you for making us a part of your everyday living!
