How are you all after the Christmas festivities? I had a wonderful time making my Vintage Christmas Table this year, using China, Glass, Tablecloths and trimmings full of memories and the past – some from my Mother In Law no longer with us; some from my 99 year old Grandma; my two dear friends no longer with us; and lots I have collected over many years from Charity Shops and Garage Sales. That’s how Christmas should be don’t you think? Full of love and memories.
Here is how it turned out. I would love to hear what you did for your table this year. Please comment and share 🙂
Now on to New Year!
Setting the Table Christmas Eve
Vintage Gold Jug, glass Christmas Beads about 100 yrs old and crochet cloth via my Mother in Law, vintage candles via Torch Soy Candles
Ready to go Christmas morning, final trimmings added
I was up well before anyone, even my 5 year old!
Vintage beads, vintage glasses, soy candles from Autumn Glow, vintage china from ebay and tablecloth from an Op Shop
Vintage liqueur glasses used for the condiments
These beads are so special to me in all their lived in, slightly bashed state
Handmade by my dear friend and my first Christmas without her
Memories from my other friend no longer here who was an amazing bird carer
