Merry Christmas Eve! It’s so hard to believe it’s here. We are doing things a little differently this year in leui of the wedding being exactly ONE WEEK from today! Holy cow! Traditionally, Shane flies to his family in New York and I fly to mine in Seattle. On Christmas day, Shane typically flies into Washington in time for dinner with my family and we spend a few extra days there until we both fly home together. This year, we are headed to my sisters in Clemson where my mom and dad are for Christmas Eve, and will be waking up early to head home to Charlotte on Christmas day as Shane’s family arrives the morning of. So, this means for the first time ever – we are hosting Christmas dinner! I won’t lie when I say I feel slightly overwhelmed by the thought of this, despite the fact that I love to host, only because I have 50 million things to do for the wedding before we leave and with the holiday, I’m working around odd store hours and crazy crowds to get all of this done.
Nonetheless, my table is set and I couldn’t wait to share it with you! I’m really happy with how it turned out, and think it’s timeless for reuse in years to come. Most of our home is monochromatic with neutrals – so I wanted a warm tone color scheme that fit within that category (ie. glass, chromes, and metallics). I know I’m a little late writing this, but what’s great about that is that most of these items are now on killer sale! So, if you wanted to recreate the look for next year – you can save big time by buying it now (the best time to buy holiday decorations is always directly after the holidays). If you’re interested in seeing the rest of our Christmas decor, see this post.
While I styled my outfit for Christmas Eve, it’s also a perfect combination for New Years Eve and not too late to order! Both items run true to size and I’m wearing a small in both.
I hope all of you have a chance to enjoy some quality time with family this holiday. Thank you for all of your love and support over 2017 – you are like a second family to me.
