“The First Noel the angel did say was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;
In fields as they lay, keeping their sheep, on a cold winter’s night that was so deep.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel, Born is the King of Israel”
Hello sweet friends…I am sure by now most of you are decking the halls and getting into the Christmas spirit! Everywhere you go, the magic of Christmas is in the air…it truly is the most wonderful time of the year! I am excited that you have landed here at Everyday Living today as I join with 27 creative bloggers for a Christmas Tablescape Blog Hop hosted by the lovely Chloe at Celebrate & Decorate! The full line up is at the bottom…you will want to be sure and visit all of these ladies for plenty of ideas for your holiday entertaining!
I love all things about Christmas, but as a musician and a singer, I especially love music! The traditional songs are my very favorites, but I also enjoy some of the modern classics. I pretty much love all of the sounds of the season! One of the songs that I am particularly drawn to and that has a strong memory attached is The First Noel. I remember singing it as a child in our small country church and knowing that once we started singing those words, it meant one thing – Christmastime was upon us! With all of that said, join me today at my table centered around the beautiful Christmas song that I love!
Look closely on the back of the chair and you will see music…can you guess what it might be?
I love my mini forest of twinkling lights!
Sparkling apple cider, cranberry juice, and Sprite mix together for a delicious refreshing drink! I garnished with sliced apples, orange segments, fresh cranberries and a sprig of rosemary! Shh…after pictures I polished off a couple!
A cotton tablecloth was the foundation for the Tablescape, I added a beautiful hand-made gold runner. I often use the vintage ruby red compotes for fruit or ice cream…they just look like they should be on a Christmas table!
I had this brilliant idea (I actually saw it in Southern Lady Magazine) to tie fresh greenery and copied antique music to the backs of the chairs using gold mesh ribbon…and the music I selected was The First Noel, of course.
The gold chargers are extremely heavy glass and found at Hobby Lobby many Christmases ago! “Winter Holiday” dinner plates and “Rose Wreath” salad plates are by Fitz and Floyd, now discontinued. Vintage lace-edged napkins are paired with Christmas red ones that are cinched by Fifth Avenue faceted crystal napkin rings.
