Table For Two

It didn't take long to clean and chop up some fresh fruit.
I used what was on hand and elevated it a bit by serving it on a glass Christmas tree platter.

I assembled a cranberry chicken salad and served it on croissants.
Also made a loaf of spiced pumpkin bread which smelled so nice as it baked.
Pulled out the Christmas china and set a table for two.

On Friday I invited my sister-in-law to come for lunch.
It was a dark and gloomy day so I lit a candle and the Christmas tree lights.
Instant Warmth.
It seems every year when I'm done with the big job of decorating the house for Christmas I think I should invite people over.  Before I know it the month is almost over and I've only done the traditional family dinner.  Now I'm thinking small impromptu gatherings are a nice way to go.  I think I'll work on doing more of them.




  1. What a lovely idea, Kim. The fruit in the tree tray looks so festive! Small easy gatherings - I like it!

  2. Sounds like a perfectly lovely day. Wish I could have joined you. :)

  3. What a lovely table you set for your little tea party!

  4. Two's company -- looks like you had a lovely time. Holiday blessings.

  5. So beautifully organised and welcoming - lovely.

  6. Love your fruit plate. And easy small gatherings are always fun.

  7. What a great idea! I'm so bad about entertaining and I need to realize I can keep it simple and just have a friend over for lunch. Doesn't need to be elaborate!
