A Merry Welcome to Red Couch Recipes and to my "Step Into Christmas" Tablesetting. These transferware plates remind me of an old-fashioned Christmas -- snow, a wreath, and tree peeking out of the window. You just know that as you walk into the home, all the indoor trimmings will match the outdoor trimming. My sister Jacqueline gave these to me recently -- 16 dinner plates and 16 salad plates -- whoo hooo! She said I need 16 for all my future grandchildren that are sure to visit in the Christmas season!
When I was in college at Brigham Young University, right after finals one year, my roommates, friends, and I left to go to California to see BYU play in the Holiday Bowl. On the way there, it snowed and the mountain pass was closed. We sat for six hours on the freeway!! It was at least a 10 hour drive there and then with the added delay it seemed like forever to reach the home of my roommate's parents. When we came to their home in Southern California, it just looked, smelled and felt like Christmas. We had just endured this long trip and when we walked into her parent's home I had literally Stepped Into Christmas.
I am old-fashioned and am still a sucker for green and red at Christmas.
Love these new snowflake goblets.
Crystal and red are always another favorite at Christmas.
I filled the lamp with some festive candy canes.
These are HUGE, OVERSIZED, GIGANTIC napkins -- I love them...
It is just so Christmasy!
