Welcome to the 123rd Tablescape Thursday!
Happy Tablescape Thursday! I hope your week has been going great. I haven’t even started to think about taking down all the decorations…not looking forward to that job.
Before we say goodbye to Christmas completely, I’m excited to share Cornelia’s tree all aglow with real candlelight in her home in Switzerland a few days ago. You may recall from THIS post, each Christmas Eve Cornelia lights real candles on her tree for the first time for the Christmas season. They are lit again each night afterwards. Here’s how it looked this Christmas Eve:
Doesn’t it just take your breath away? Soooo very beautiful!
Each Christmas, to make room for their tree, Cornelia moves her dining room table and chairs into her drawing room and the tree is set up in the dining room. So Christmas dinner is held in what is normally Cornelia’s drawing room. Have you ever been tempted to do that…swap your living room for your dining room?
We’re dining by candlelight tonight in Cornelia’s beautiful home in Switzerland…
Cornelia shared, “The China is Le Manoir by Villeroy and Boch. The cutlery is silver by Jezler /Reed pattern. The ornaments on the plates are Swiss chocolates.”
The side plates are by Royal Copenhagen “Peterchens Weihnachten.
The crystal stemware is by Peill/Germany. Isn’t it gorgeous?!
The napkins are Swiss embroidery and the tablecloth is by Le Jacquard Français.
So beautiful by candlelight.
Cornelia, thanks so much for inviting us into your home this Christmas! Each visit has been a fantasy come to life!
