Every year there is one holiday event we look forward to more than any other. Our dear friends the Scotts, host a Christmas feast for a group of great friends and it is the highlight of our seasonal celebrations. They pull out all the stops on the menu and the decor and this year was no exception.
Her inspiration started with this nest she found in the trees outside of her office. The small nest is nestled inside of a larger one made of small twigs which we think were all done by the same bird. She sprayed the outside twigs a soft white.
Then she added more sprayed branches some with little dried flowers on top of a vintage piece of lace found in a previous trip to Round Top, TX.
The vintage sheet music is from her husband's collection, placed inside glass hurricanes which glowed from the candle light within.
A vintage piccolo that her husband "just happened to have in the attic"! Can you imagine? How many of us would be able to access a piccolo on a moment's demand?
Royal Doulton crystal sparkling in the candlelight with a snowflake coaster.
A second nest found in the same trees!
Vintage damask napkins found on this year's trip to Round Top.
Individual place cards each with a different Christmas carol.
And then there was the food!
Julia Child's Boeff Bourgionne with Homemade Noodles, Roasted Baby Carrots and Brussel Sprouts, Mandarin Orange Salad with with Candied Pecans and Homemade Baguettes.
Pecan Cake with Caramel Sauce and Whipped Cream topped with Dark Chocolate and drizzled with a Caramel Sauce.
Yes, I ate almost every bite!
Vintage marching band music stands added to the overall theme.
We were all dazzled and amazed at every turn and the evening exceeded all our expectations.
