A Holiday Affair

Just want to share some pics from our holiday dinner over the weekend…

It was nighttime, so lighting wasn’t ideal…I absolutely despise shooting at night b/c lighting is so poor!

  3. I love that tea station! What a great idea!! And the dinner looked DELICIOUS. Where did you get those demitasse cups? I’ve been trying to find some like that and haven’t met my match!


  4. Beautiful! Inspiriting! No typo there… Thanks for the incredible photos and the heartfelt greetings and inspiring ideas. I’m gonna do the little table with plates underneath and platters on top for dessert-time! Great idea!
