A Lovely Dinner

Last night I had my Father, Step Mom, Sisters, Tiffany & Shakayla & My Grandparents over for dinner. It was a  wonderful evening so nice to see my Grandparents who live several hours away & I hadn't seen in a while. I am mad at myself though because I forgot to take pictures of everybody while they were over and of the dinner like I had planned, I had Lasagna, corn & french bread with pumpkin pie and apple cider for desert. I did take pictures of my table setting before they arrived though so here they are...

I have enough of my plates in big and small to do all white or all green but I love to do the opposites rotating every other plate.

Remember this Santa & sleigh that I showed in my post about a week ago that I had painted white, well I had tapers in it before but I but tea lite cups in it for a change and I love that way it looked.

This was my Grandparents first time coming over to my house since I moved in about 7 months ago. It was so sweet of them to bring me a house warming gift. I love these bird ornaments they got for me there is 3 of them aren't they pretty?

 As well as this ornament I love how sparkly it is!
 They also brought me this gorgeous huge white & sparkly bow its so beautiful that I am waiting to find the most perfect place for it before I share it on my blog.

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things
