Shopping in the city!!

Tomorrow morning I am off to the city!!! Yay!! I am going with Daughter No 2 and her 2 little girls to stay with my eldest daughter, her husband and her 2 little boys!! I’m hoping to get some Christmas shopping done but I also have a Dr’s appointment, a car service, hair appointment and a concert to attend, so I’m thinking the next few days will be a little buzy!
Talking about Christmas…it’s not that far away! I have 3 weeks work left then we have our Christmas holidays for 6 weeks. I plan to spend most of my time at the beach house. I’m hoping my little grandies are able to join me for some of the time.
While out helping Mr FH earlier this week I called by the old farm house on our property and couldn’t believe the colour of the leaves on the grapevine so I brought some home with me to try and dry (it doesn’t work!!) so I thought I would set a quick table using the gorgeous green vine leaves.
I hope you enjoy my simple Christmas table…….

I love the look of the white and brown china with just a little gold and fresh green vines. This is so different to what I am planning for Christmas – just a bit of fun for now!
I think you have seen everything before except these gold candle holders – I can’t believe I’ve never used them!

Suzy, your table looks very inviting. I love the vines running down the center of the table with the gold; very chic! It must be lovely to have six weeks holidays coming up. Enjoy your trip to the city and thanks for joining me for tea today.

Blessings,
Sandi

A pretty table setting. The grape leaves look lovely intertwining with the centre piece and candles.
