Christmas all through the House

SO glad to have my dining room back! Loving the new kitchen and butler's pantry as well!

Here's my dining room ready for Christmas Eve Dinner!

 As you can see, we have a small live tree in this room which has white and colored lights and has a Nutcracker Ballet theme.

 The mantle is also decorated with Nutcrackers from the ballet.

At each place there is a nutcracker place card holder, as well as a paper nutcracker tucked into each napkin. I am using my Spode Christmas Tree Grove china which I think fits my Victorian house and dining room perfectly.

Nutcracker salt and pepper shakers stand guard on the table as well!

On the small buffet, my punch bowl and cups are ready for some creamy eggnog.

On the hanging shelf, I have various Christmas pitchers and teapots.

In the Parlor, we have a larger real tree with colored lights and our memory ornaments.

The perfect place to read a good book or look at the Santas on the mantle.

In our sunroom, we have our Bethlehem Village.

The Wise Men coming through the desert, complete with sand dunes.

The Roman Soldiers taking the census at the city gates.

A stable behind the Inn.

A Moravian Star over the manger.

Have a Very Merry Christmas!!!

I will be joining Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish, Rustic and Refined and Between Naps on the Porch.
