A Snowy Christmas Eve Table

Oh the magic of Christmas Eve at 
Purple Chocolat Home!  

How I love to set the tables and 
change them up just a bit each year.  
This year it is all white and with 
snow out on the deck and mountains 
behind, it is just perfect.  

The furniture is moved out of the living room 
and if you have been following me 
for years, you know that it then turns 
into the Great Room.

You can see that the table 
on the front is the tall table 
for adults and teens, and 
the short table in the back 
is for the smallest elves, 
but Papa and Nana Claus 
will be sitting with them for 
a special night.  

Everyone gets a goblet.  
I bought these at Dollar Tree, 
so there isn't a worry about them 
getting broken.  White and silver 
chargers sit underneath 
the crowned plates - one set 
that I have enough of for 
this fun crowd.  

I ran silver sequined runners 
down the table and added 
white and silver feathered trees 
(new this year from At Home).

The beautiful silverplate was from 
Horchow years ago and is no longer 

With the candles lit and the fireplace going, 
everything just sparkles.

The candelabras were from my oldest 
daughter's wedding and were purchased 
20 years ago.  They have been used 
over and over and over. 

We are all set and ready for guests.  
Hoping for a Merry Christmas for 
everyone.  And we hope you are all 
healthy and happy too.

I will be posting this 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.
