lovie & i are hosting our very first christmas eve dinner.
in the brett family. christmas eve has always been a big hoorah.
& seeing as how i am now a married woman. and have just settled into our new home.
it seems most appropriate that christmas eve dinner be held at the mills residence.
you can imagine my excitement.
having twenty people over to our house for a fancy little soirée.
sounds like a perfectly swell idea. if i do say so myself.
with the big night only a few shorts weeks away.
i am already trying to design a lovely menu & create a most merry home.
the christmas lights have been hung. the halls are decked with christmas decor.
the tree is perfectly placed. & the stockings are hung.
the mills home is a cheery little place.
except one thing.
i am swirling all sorts of table scape ideas around in my mind.
gold & glitzy? a snowy winter wonderland? traditional red & green?
the decorating possibilities are endless...
but if i could create my most perfect. most beautiful. most lovely christmas table.
it would most certainly be a table overflowing with mackenzie-childs pretties.
a black. white. & gold. christmas table would be just divine.
each & every piece of the mackenzie-childs courtly collection is stunning.
i am coveting every last piece of this ceramic collection.
the black & white check is so my style.
& the gold fluted edges just send it home for me.
table scape perfection to the max.
this might be my very fave of all the pieces.
i mean honestly. is there anything lovelier than this fluted. gold-rimmed. bowl?
the fluted dinner plates are stunning.
the teacup & saucer are just out of this world.
these have my name all over them.
black & white checkerboard. gold trim & polka dots.
this cheese serving set belongs with me.
can't you just imagine it?
a perfectly black. white. & gold christmas table?!
it would just be too good to be true.
so. the question is...
would lovie ever be convinced that this was a necessity for our hosting debut?
... a girl can dream.
& this girl dreams in black. white. & gold.
