Christmas Dinner Table Ideas
One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is to entertain. I love to decorate my home for Christmas - today I had the husband bring down over 43 boxes filled with Christmas goodies from the attic - tomorrow Winter Wonderland will visit our home. Everything will be Christmas - from the front yard - to the living room - to the bathrooms - to the kitchen - even my plates and silverware.
I found a great site to find dinnerware and flatware for my holiday parties - I just purchased 3 sets of the Christmas bulbs salt and pepper shakers. They are adorable for my Christmas dinner table - this year we will have close to twenty (20) people sharing our Christmas bird and we need more than one pair of shakers. I also fell in love with the plates - especially the Winter Berry design - in addition to the plates there are matching glassware and flatware.
Pfaltzgraff.com is a great site to visit for your holiday needs and everyday decorating - click on the links and have fun shopping and getting great ideas. You can find everything from dinnerware to flatware to drink ware to linens to complete your dinner table - I will definitely post pictures.
Another thing I love to do is cook and bake - I have found some great recipes on Epicurious.com. One of my favorite recipes is the Peanut Brittle and Caramel Crunch Ice Cream Pie. This site is an excellent food resource for the holidays and everyday fun. There are also "how to" videos on this site - How to cook your holiday turkey - how to make a lemon meringue pie and much much more.
Have fun entertaining this Christmas season - if you have any good tips - please let me know. Would love to hear them!
