It can't all be tasteful at Christmas time. there has to be room for some tacky things too.

All the amazing food!
Apron fabric from traditional Swedish costume, here used as a table cloth.
The day before Christmas Eve the snow came down thick and fast, and from then we had a picture postcard sort of Christmas. The house that we are lucky enough to get to celebrate in is made for this, with a dining table big enough to seat 14 and a fireplace with lots of room for home made decorations on the mantelpiece. And at 31 I think I have finally mastered the art of eating a smorgasbord without getting full after the first visit - I even made it to the brussel sprouts!
