Finally Christmas...

can be my focus. Have decided to have a red, blue and white color theme for our Christmas here in Canberra. I have only ever hosted Christmas Day about 3 times before so it is a real treat to be having it at home with family from interstate coming. On the table I thought I would put white damask cloths (mum is bringing) some of my crystal , white and pale blue china (Caroline by Wedgewood), silver cutlery and Red everything else. Apart from wrapping a few presents today I also started my fruit cake and Lilianne made our first batch of gingerbread in dove shapes for gift giving.

This wreath below I made last year with my friend Robyn who loves making Christmas decorations too. For the last 15 years we have made our Christmas cards together Ill post about this years when we get to make them! soon. If you would like to make the wreath the instructions came from the blog Living with Lindsay. Or I see in the latest Inside Out mag that it is available for $250 from a paper company in Sydney.

I worked on the decorating the entry this year. Its nice just to rework things you already have. During the year I had letters representing the initials of our each person in our family and lucky for me I therefore had the N,E and L.
The 'O' is from Shop Handmade its out of a set of 3 embroidery frames. I love how it has turned out.
More to come.
