Merry ChristmasTime!!!

Last year at this time, I shared a photo of our family table in my post Our Christmas.  In my tablescape, I included treasured photos of loved ones who have passed away, as a remembrance of their love and presence in our lives.

These photos included a picture of my mother and father (deceased), my in-laws, paternal and maternal grandparents and photos of our closet family friends.  These pictures brought much joy to our holiday gathering and we delighted in sharing stories about our loved ones.

This year especially, please hold your family and friends close.  Too many families will have an empty seat at their table this Christmas.  Remember those who have gone before us and celebrate their lives as you share in your Christmas dinner.

  1. Placing photos of family & friends (who sadly, are no longer with us), on your Christmas tablescape is such a beautiful & caring idea. Seeing photos of your loved ones & remembering them with stories of "happy days gone by" keeps them with us while we celebrate Christmas at the dinner table. They would all love that! Keeping them with us at the table! Such a thoughtful & creative idea. I love it too!
