Hi friends! I hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s. New Year’s is a bit different around my house. My parents and my brother’s family come into town and we combine our Christmas and New Year’s celebrations into one. We have a great time and I get to extend Christmas for one more week. This year that was a big plus, since the holidays seemed to sneak up on me. The week after Christmas was very low key and I really enjoyed spending it just hanging out with my family.
It was so fun to have my nephews here for a couple of days. Jeremiah is a sweetheart!
Charlotte had a blast hanging out with her teenage cousin!
I did manage to do a bit more decorating before everyone got here. I wanted to have a special table setting, but I didn’t want to spend a fortune, so I used what I already had around the house.
I took a rosemary plant that I’m planning to use outside, wrapped it in burlap and tied it with a white satin ribbon. A green table cloth, a few sprigs of rosemary tucked into white napkins and mercury glass votive holders were the final touches. I love how it turned out.
How about you? Did you set up a special table for New Year’s Eve? I’d love to see your photos. I’ll be back to normal blogging this week with a review of a few of my favorite 2011 projects and my goals for 2012. I wish you all fabulous New Year’s Day. We will be eating more food (if that’s possible!) and watching some football in my house. What will you be doing?
Oh, and I haven’t forgotten about the giveaway! Traci from Traci Zeller Designs is the winner! Congrats Traci!!
