Merry Christmas

As some of you know, I’ve been obsessing over tartan this fall and I am thrilled that I finally have the opportunity to set a tartan table for the holiday. I am lucky to live in an area that has so many wonderful resources. Thanks to Ralph Lauren and Hoaglands in Greenwich and Nielsen’s in Darien for having everything I needed to create the perfect mix of new purchases with treasured heirlooms!! Wishing you all the very merriest of holidays from my home to yours!!

      Hi Andrea – I don’t always get around as much as I’d like to (in the blogosphere). Thank you! Not sure which china you mean but the bowl on top is William Yeoward. We had a lovely Christmas – hope yours was as well.

    As you know from my Christmas Eve blog,setting this year’s table in the new apartment for 13 turned out to be quite an adventure but well woth the effort. Who knew there could be “artists of the table top?”
