I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas!! I am always in charge of decorating the tables for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinners, but this year we had a little more fun with our decorations so I wanted to share some pictures! Plus almost all of the Christmas decor we used is ON SALE NOW so make sure to click on the links…it’s never too early to start Christmas planning for next year!

Christmas Eve we had about 25 people come to our house for dinner after Mass including all my young cousins! SO we decided to have a lot of fun with the kids table and this is what we came up with and they loved it! A Christmas coloring book table!!

Then we had a beautiful table for the rest of the family that my mom, sister and I put together with inspiration from Pinterest! The main centerpiece was a gift one of our neighbors brought us and for flowers we just used white hydrangeas, red roses and some swigs of evergreen.

Christmas Morning/Day/Night we open presents, had a great breakfast, then  went to a local nursing home to sing Christmas carols! We (my siblings and one of our cousins) started doing this last year and it is a great way to spend those uneventful hours between opening presents and Christmas dinner. Then, we came home and watched The Martian (GREAT MOVIE) and had a great dinner!

For the table I just brought together the decorations from last night’s table:
