I would like to share some photos of our Christmas day in Melbourne on a beautiful day. The trees in our street were dressed with pretty red ribbons. My neighbour down the road started doing this one year and he did his side of the street. I followed the trend and did the same on our side of the road, so now the two blocks of our street is covered with ribboned trees during Christmas every year!
Our table settings were all red themed. I saw on Pinterest last year, a nail polish gift with 'For Your Mistle Toes' and have wanted to do it ever since! So the females all got OPI nail polish and the males had 'Reindeer Noses' on their place settings. My son helped me die cut all the 40 Poinsettia flowers needed for the table of 20. I assembled them with crochet flowers made with Gold Shimmer twine and a brad.
A sample of what we had on our table on Christmas Day...
My photographer brother took a photo of all the Hsieh cousins in the same spot that another photo was taken 7 years ago!
We had a great dinner with both mine and Robin's families. We had a few minor mishaps (The Turkey Incident and a napkin caught on fire from the candles on the table) but everything turned out well in the end. The best part about Christmas dinner is the leftovers the next day or two! Hope everyone had a great day and would love to hear about your day!
