Hi friends, as I type this we are one week away from Christmas. Wow doesn’t the Christmas season whiz by? Hopefully you aren’t too stressed and are pacing yourself to what is your comfort level. If you are serving Christmas dinner or entertaining this week, I’m sharing a few simple tablescape ideas to help you out or give a little inspiration…
I love entertaining and making my guests feel comfortable & welcome. Adding special touches, even in a small way is a great opportunity to show appreciation for your guests and make them feel special. I had a girls weekend planned and wanted to do a fun and more intimate dinner where we could relax and catch up. But I also didn’t want to be in the kitchen worrying about it all why they were visiting. This simple party lets you do things ahead of time you can fully enjoy your guests.
