Christmas Eve Table

In my opinion a beautiful table setting can even make the food taste better!  Well, not really but subconsciously it just might have an effect.  I should do research on this and I'll get back with you all:)  But, in all seriousness it is important!  Below is the menu I served and some pictures of this years table setting on a budget!  Hope your holiday was wonderful.

Shrimp Cocktail
Cranberry Walnut Cheese Ball

Main Meal:

The Centerpiece

A quick view before adding all the food and lighting the candles!
Instead of adding name tags at each plate I typed up a menu, rolled the paper and tied with a red ribbon! Clean, useful and beautiful!
The Chandelier above the table was dressed with cedar and a simple ribbon tied in a bow at each light!
