We eat breakfast and then start cooking. We make all the hor d'oeuvres first so we can eat them while we fix our big dinner.
I love having this counter space in our dining room area. We hang out in the family room and in this area all day long, watching TV, playing games and eating.
But this counter is the place that we fill with hor d'oeuvres and punch and desserts and snacks.
I'm planning on sharing some of our favorite Christmas recipes with you in a future post.
My plate holder usually holds a variety of pies.
A little wheel barrow filled with evergreen and cinnamon sits next to the stove. My mom in law sent us a box last week filled with Christmas memories and this little box of evergreen.
I added a holiday bow to the topiary that usually sits here and surrounded our cow deer with jars of candy.

Hope you're having a wonderful Christmas season! We have had rain instead of snow here and no indication for a white Christmas, which is very unusual here in Michigan. I hope we'll get some 'bad' weather the week of Christmas!
love and blessings~
