I hope you had a great Christmas! I had a wonderful time with my family with lots of laughs as usual. I really made a departure from the usual glittery silver and gold Christmas table themes I normally do and decided to pay tribute to my Scottish grandparents and my Grandmother who loved to entertain. I was inspired by a table I saw on Pinterest and was really lucky to find a nice guy to cut the wood chargers for me. My Dad gave me a wool tartan blanket that is his great grandfather Fraser’s clan tartan and I used it as a base and pop of color for the table. I cut cedar and pine boughs and scattered pine cones and used sprays of berries for color accents. I put paper whites down the center of the table on “stumps” and as is our family tradition, we had Christmas crackers at each place setting to pop open after dinner and sit around with the funny paper hats, read the corny jokes and play with the silly prizes. It wouldn’t be Christmas without them! Now onto New Year’s!
