This look could work at Christmas or on any other special occasion. I love the prettiness of it, so festive and beautiful. Let's be realistic here, at least those of us who have children, this is something that works for a few seconds, before the dining begins! But those few seconds are worth it. For me, it's all about the right table setting. Those of us fortunate enough during the holidays to actually being able to put good food on our table shouldn't take that for granted. We should honour that with a pretty table. At least I think so.
Have you seen the film The Blind Side, the one that got Sandra Bullock an Oscar? Want to know what was my favourite scene? It was the moment at Thanksgiving when the Tuohy family was enjoying the turkey meal lying on the sofa watching a game on TV (how horrible; it broke my heart!). Suddenly Leigh Anne [Bullock] notices that Michael Oher [Quinton Aaron] is missing and then she sees him eating in the dining room by himself. She turns off the TV, well two TVs, and moves everyone and the food into the dining room. I loved that scene and you can watch it here.
I'm off to the city centre, hoping to find the things I need for our table this year. Hubby has promised to behave well and follow me into any shop I like and to allow me to browse as much as I want. I already have some ideas on paper and hopefully I find what I need.
Have a beautiful Saturday!
