Christmasing in the Dining Room

Hello, Dear Ones! I'm continuing with showing you my house decked out for Christmas! Today I'm bringing you into my dining room. It's all sparkly and bright. I just love that.
 The window on the left looks out to the front of the house and there is a door on the left side that leads to the kitchen.
 Looking from this side you can see where the door is to the kitchen. I poked up a garland with lights to put on top of the china cabinet. Love me some sparkly twinkly. Here you see another one of my vintage tablecloths! This one came with six matching napkins.
 Here we're looking at the dining room from the entry side.Yep, those are silverware boxes under the server and they're filled with my silver-plate utensils! If a burglar got in, that would be the first thing they'd take. Guess I should move them.
 See? just a tiny little entry that separates the dining room and the living room.



Like I've told you before, I'm on a Milk Glass kick so I'm just using it all over the house. Here I've poked some down on my olden server. I tossed a berry garland over my olden mirror.
 Don't you just love Milk Glass? I've poked in Christmas balls and greenery and beads in these little love bug pieces.
Mother just loved this little curio and kept her treasured pretties in it. I'm doing the same thing with it. I have my two pretty glass cut vases from Prague on the top shelf then on the other two I have my Murano glass pieces we bought while in Venice. Oh the top are my little icing looking Christmas trees. I love these little things! I love lots of my things. :)
 On  this olden table I've placed my most treasured Nativity Mr. Precious bought for me many years ago in Austin, Texas, at a Christmas shop. That's my little Bible I used as a little girl and it's opened to the birth of our Savior, Jesus. Need I say I love these things too?
 Just a little corner table with a couple more pieces of Milk Glass. I love my candle stick!
 I wanted a simple centerpiece that I could easily take off the table. I poked down a silver tray and put a candle in the center and then continued to poke down pine cones, sugared fruit (faux), and a few berries because...
 We hosted a Christmas party! I should have taken off the Saran Wrap to show you the food! Do you see I'm using a little Milk Glass Vase for the forks? We bought a Honey Baked Ham, spiral cut and had little rolls with choices of mustard. I put together a cheese tray, a veggie tray, olives, pumpkin bread, a mix of cookies, some crunchy stuff and dips and chips. I made Wassail. How I love Wassail and most of our guests had either never heard of it or had never had any! Can you believe it? Is Wassail just a southern thing? Well, hand me your cup and I'll fill it up with some of this hot elixir! 
Since our home is very lived in and we have been keeping little Camp a lot lately, here sits his highchair right in the dining room. I poked in my teddy bear, Roscoe, and gave him a couple of little books to keep him busy.
Wish you all could have come to our party as we had a great time! I just know you would have stayed and helped me clean up. You would have, wouldn't you? You would of, right? :)

If you'd like to see my kitchen hutch decked out for Christmas just scroll down to the next post! I don't know how or why I did this that both posts showed up on the same day. I wouldn't do something like that would I? I guess I did! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
