My Christmas Dinner Table Setting

Yes, you read that right.

No, we haven’t converted.

We’re planning on celebrating Christmas night like so many other Jewish families in America: with Chinese take out and going to the movies!

So our table is ready, incorporating some of my blue and white porcelain, some foo dogs, and some favorite table wear brought back from our time in Asia.

This centerpiece was very simple to make: I used holiday picks in blues and whites in a variety of textures from Michael’s {currently on deep discount!} and cut them to different sizes, and arranged them.

These green bowls were purchased in the Kappabashi kitchen district during our time in Tokyo and are a favorite.  Now that we’re back in America, we use them as often as possible, including for wonton soup!

Not only do we each have a favorite pair of hashi {chopsticks}, but my family gave me a fabulous set of rests for my last birthday in Japan.  They came from a little shop down the street from our apartment that only sold chopsticks and hashi rests, and every time we passed it, we peeked in the window and The Cuties and I would spy these animals and talk about which ones we each would pick!

I found these adorable Hanukkah poppers this year we haven’t had a chance to use yet, so I thought they’d be perfect to add to the table.  You can find them here if you want to stash them away for the future!

Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and/or Good Fortunes!

Now I’m off to check the movie listings….
