Due to weather issues, Christmas Day was a quiet affair here this year. We actually didn't celebrate Christmas dinner until last night.
The food turned out very well, and I have a couple of new recipes to share ~ I'll post the menu, photos and recipes a little later.
In the meantime I thought I would share a glimpse of the Christmas table.
As you can see, I kept it very simple this year. Through the years I've found that everyone seems to enjoy themselves more (including the hostess), if I keep it casual. :)
If I'm hosting Christmas, instead of place markers I always give some kind of Christmas ornaments. This year it was these inexpensive wooden nutcrackers, each one a little different.
The centerpiece was about as simple and no-fuss as it could be. Just a gold-leaf rectangular glass platter filled with fresh cranberries, and clear votives.
It really worked out well, and was a very low-stress day!
