My Alpine Home


We have lived in our new home in Alpine, Utah for four years now. My current goal is to make a larger more open home (which works great with our extended family) have a bit of cottage charm and seem more cozy. I hope you will follow along and give me encouragement as well as advice as I embark upon this challenge.

Christmas Tables. . .

Christmas is nigh and I realized that I hadn’t shared pics of the Christmas tables that were set at our churches Relief Society dinner.

It’s tradition for the women to volunteer to set a table.  These were taken with my phone so some are not the greatest.

Here is the table setting I did.

I went with a bird theme.  Using my vintage 50’s bubble glass goblets, a tall slender thrifted pitcher, my rustic birdcage, a ceramic game hen, and a container of bird seed nestled in my red tray with boughs and moss balls.  I added a crystal garland for a little sparkle.  Silly me, I didn’t even take a picture of my beautiful toile game bird plates.  I gave mini white bottle brush trees and a pkt. of sunflower seeds as a take home gift.

I loved them all, but I think my favorite was the Natural themed one with all of the beautiful greenery.  Loved this hand knitted Nativity.  The woman who made it started it last year.  I love all of the details.  Baby Jesus is so sweet and look at that lambs face.  The fun thing is that her family puts on a live Nativity every year with real live camels.  Crowds come in the 100’s.

The food was delicious and I have to show you our dessert.  Gorgeous or what? Made by Nann from At Nann's Table Yup, she lives up the road from me.  She gives a tutorial on her blog.http://atnannstable.blogspot.com/2011/12/day-7-twelve-days-of-christmas.html

The tables are all so beautiful. I have the same dishes as the Woodsy table. I went to an event like this last month, only there were tables for all seasons and holidays. I have pictures of the Christmas tables I was going to show, but I guess it won't get done now.
Have a wonderful Christmas, Jann

NANN LIVES UP THE ROAD FROM YOU?

I just adore that lady, oh my gosh, you know each other????? Figures, two of the best ladies I know in blogland are real friends.

OK, I really do need to come visit you both one of these days, I mean it! Jann and Nann - how awesome!

Now back to the post: Jann, those tablescapes are amazing! Each one is so uniquely different too - sure is a sight to behold - and the dinner sounds heavenly.

Thank you so much for sharing!
