Blushing Christmas Eve Table

I just get giddy as I set the tables for
Christmas Eve.  Everything is prepped and
the Christmas music is turned on, and it
is my happy place.  

This year I was inspired by these new
chair covers from CV Linens - they
just looked ethereal.  I ordered them
in blush pink and my table began to
come together.  The tablecloths were
blush pink rectangular cloths from Amazon
by Your Chair Covers Inc.

On the adult table I used my mother's Pink
Fostoria glasses.  

Blush pink and white angel wings graces the plate stacks.
The blush pink wings were from Hobby Lobby this
year and the white ones were from At Home.

Gold sparkling chargers anchored the
white and gold rimmed plates, and gold
flatware was the choice.

I wanted sparkle down the tables with
a glittering blush runner, along with
blush pink metallic beads from Hobby Lobby
this year.

But I wanted to bring in Christmas greenery
with florals this year.  I started with a
purchased outdoor hanging pot made all
of greenery and pulled it apart, recreating
two arrangements in mercury glass
and adding pink and white roses.

Pink mercury glass candlesticks graced the adult table.

With the pink touches I added to the mantel
and tree this year, the table looked perfect
in the great room.

The little people table is a Lifetime table that
has adjustable legs.  I used matching Chiavari
chairs in child size. They just love having their
own table.

Goblets for their table are from Dollar Tree,
so there is no worry about breaking.  Of course,
because we aren't worried about them breaking,
we haven't broken one in over two years!

My daughter in law was so cute, as she walked
into the entry and looked into the great room,
she stopped and pulled out her camera and 
video taped the room.  What a compliment.

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas.

I will be posting with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
