Remembering Christmas Past

The year my granddaughter was born I was hoping we would have a white Christmas; but it was just like this year. I remember setting the table with white linens, white candles, and crystal. I sprinkled fake snow, white confetti, and rock salt around the center!

That year my decorations were natural items: birds, apples, wreaths, pine cones, etc.

Another year that I used a lot of natural decorations was when I decided to have a “Fruitcake” tree.

Beaded fruit, pine cone "nuts," drizzled with icing made from a lace garland.

The snow came the day before our Christmas dinner.

I folded the napkins into angels.

Looking back is fun. Looking forward is better.

Happy New Year!
