after months and months, we finally got the living room curtains hung! i swear they look better in person.
question: do you say curtains or drapes? i have always thought that the term drapes was overly fussy and formal, so i just say curtains, but is there a difference, or is it just a matter of opinion?
last sunday, i had some lovelies over for a holiday brunch (mcw, mermaid and i do declare, along with miss ax who no longer blogs). we had a blast. yummy food and hours of girltalk. we devoured the crab quiche. it was a hit. highlights from the party: the boy, who does not understand that he is supposed to leave home or stay scarce during a girl party. he kept popping in to eavesdrop and join in on the conversation. mcw did not disappoint him by providing many salacious stories.
here's my table. i love all my holiday tartans
my grandmother brought me the adorable elephant place card holders from a trip to india a few years ago.
our house is finally decked for christmas. we found a perfect tall and skinny tree. i always get a fraser fir. our space is pretty tight, so a full tree never works. we lucked out this time and didn't have to do any pruning of the tree once we got her inside. she wedged perfectly into place.
now that my tree is up and i've got my first holiday party of the season under my belt, i am in a christmas spirit!
