Since we are right around Christmas I wanted my table setting to reflect all that I love about Christmas...warmth, coziness, twinkling lights, festive cheer. I began with my table party favors for people to take home with them. I took plain, terracotta small planters and painted them gold and red and planted tiny succulents in them - kicking off my red, gold, green and white color scheme. From there I built around it and did the same thing as I suggested last time: setting the table the night before, signature greeting drink(s), personalized menus and as much food prep as possible....the more time I find that I can give myself for last minute details the more relaxed I am as a hostess....!
me + the birthday boy....love you SO very much, Christopher!! xx
