Christmas Table

Yep, one Christmas dinner is done and dusted in our house.  We celebrated Christmas a little earlier than normal this year on my husband's side seeing as I won't be able to fly next weekend. This year I went for simplicity on the Christmas table settings.  I used red, silver and white, and also some New South Wales Christmas bush, a pretty Australian Native that grows in my part of the world in the festive season.  It's one of my favourite parts of an Aussie Christmas.

I added some place cards using chalkboard paint onto some shipping labels, which I also used in gift  wrapping.

It's been a big week for our family for many reasons, with another big one to come, so I'm looking forward to resting up after Christmas for a few short weeks before I'm back into the swing of life with a newborn.  At least the Christmas shopping is complete.

Have a lovely pre-christmas week!
