“White Christmas” Dinner Party

Some info about our Gourmet Group:  We are 4 couples who enjoy cooking, entertaining, and most of all, each other’s company.
We take turns hosting in our homes.  The hosts decide on the menu (theme) from appetizers to dessert for the evening.  The hosts cook most of the meal, but give at least one course (along with all the recipes) to the other couples to prepare.  We love trying new recipes and ideas.  So most of the time, the recipes are ones we haven’t cooked before, but they don’t have to be.

It was our turn to host our Gourmet Group last December.  My theme for the evening was “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas”.  I envisioned a ‘winter wonderland’ type of look.  Here is a look at how I styled my table, and our menu for the evening.

 MY FOYER CHEST

I had a peaceful angel theme going on there…

MY TABLESCAPE

Even the men that evening noticed and commented on a “What a pretty table…” (very unusual)

View from a side…if you look closely in the top right corner, you can see a lighted wreath I hung on the door to the dining room

MY CHANDY

As you can see, I hung various types of snowflakes, icicles, and white birds from my chandy…

A CLOSER LOOK at the CENTER OF TABLE

I placed mirrors in the middle of the table to play the part of an ice skating rink on the table for my acrylic skating snowmen, and to add sparkle to the table.  I then layered “buffalo snow” across the middle of the table and added various white items like snowflakes, snowballs, and candles.

PLACE SETTINGS

A mirror, white votive, and a mini Bailey’s at each place setting…

I glued a small chocolate snowman onto each place-name card.

Mini silver photo frames (that I got at Crate & Barrel several years ago) with “holiday messages” were scattered on the table

    Your white Christmas theme and table decor are exquisite for a special Christmas celebration! Love the use of snow and ice – snowflake decor, snowball candles, icicles, snowmen, and even an ice skating pond – to carry out the theme. The angels were a perfect touch leading into your spectacular dining room. What a beautiful creation! Thanks for this lovely post!
