~~~A Candy Cane Luncheon!!!~~~

Hello my friends! Today I had a small lunch for Yvonne (of STONE GABLE!!!!) and another friend!!!!! I was so happy and excited to have them come to my house! I wanted to make them feel at home and relaxed so set a fun table!!!! I used a red tablecloth, a candy striped place,at, my white charger, red dinner plate, candy swirl dessert plate and white bowl for salad.  The napkin is a CUTE pattern of candy and candy canes!!!! It is gathered in a candy napkin ring!
 At each place we had a candy cane votive holder and red stemmed goblets for our beverages.
 My gingerbread luminary is the centerpiece on a candy swirl cake plate. One of my kindles sits on the GB house and 2 more are perched on the cake plate.
 This little guy just compelted his gingerbread house:)

 A decorative candy cane adorns each glass.
 My gingerbread S and P are put to use.
 I love these sun shadow shots!!!!

 Aren't the napkin rings so cute!!??
 I used my red flatware from Walmart! I love it for the holidays and use it every day!

 Just for pictures, I added my Mr. and Mrs. Claus on each side of the centerpiece. They are both bakers and have their own houses in hand.

 They are both Byers Choice caroler pieces.

 Before we ate I removed the gingerbread house and Santas and placed this candy cane pillar on the table. We had to have room for the FOOD!!!!!:):)
 We had a chicken and broccoli casserole,
 a cranberry and jello mold in a tree plate,
 I placed a small vase of tulips at each place setting too.

 I also love to have a little take home gift for my guests. I filled these bags with Christmas cookies, macaroons, and chocolate covered pretzels.
 We also had a yummy salad of spinach, feta, walnuts, mandarin oranges and pomegranete craisins with a raspberry hazelnut dressing.
I forgot to get a picture of our dessert:( We had brownies with ice cream and fudge sauce!!!! What a wonderful afternoon we had! It was great fun and lots of conversation. I wish you could all have been here! Thanks for your visit. I will be joining these wonderful parties and I hope you wil visit some for more wonderful inspiration!!!! The time of Christmas is coming FAST!!!!! Hope you are all ready. XO, Pinky
