What do you do for Christmas morning? Is your family a "get up and tear open the gifts" kind of family, or do you do things in a more orderly fashion? Well, my bunch is a "get up and tear" group! Although I'm glad that those early, early mornings are gone, I do miss the excitement of those days. With our kids all out of the nest, hubby and I now have a leisurely breakfast planned for the day. I'm setting my table with my "Christmas everyday" dishes. Pfaltzgraff "Snow Village" caught my eye a long time ago, and I've been using them for about 10 years now. On the Friday after Thanksgiving, I pull them out of the dish cupboard and use them until the New Year comes.
I've started my table with a casual plaid runner that I purchased a a craft fair long ago. Next comes a few of the snowmen that I have collected over the years. I am using the dinner plate, bowl and flatware in this pattern. I've collected several of the serving pieces along with the cream/sugar and the salt and pepper shakers. I pulled out my green Mexican goblets, too. I like the green with the intense reds.
I'm using a cranberry napkin with white "Style Sisters" napkin rings. they remind me of the snow that is supposed to be coming tonight.
Each of the pieces of the flatware have a different scene on the handle. My grandkids love to use this during December.
What do you serve for breakfast? This year we're having waffles from scratch, made in the hotel-style waffle maker. Strawberries, whipped cream, bacon and juice will fill our bunch up, for awhile.
Susan- once again you are tops in my book-or I should say-blog! I always look forward to seeing all of the beauty that you inspire. Everyone-have a Merry Christmas!
