We have a new dining space - a sunroom extension built onto our kitchen. It's light and bright and we loved eating our dinner there today, it gave a new dimension to the festivities. I couldn't resist blue, white and silver again this year, but with a touch of yellow and brass.

My blue is a chinoiserie tablecloth I bought in Boston in April as well as some Carrigaline striped plates and saucers bought in the local charity shops here in Ballinasloe. The brass napkin rings were six for €3 in the VdeP this week, the napkins are from Aldi (or Lidl?) and the cocktail peacocks are from Penneys. The glass candle holders on the saucers were €1 each in Angie's Attic.

Placeholders were a Christmas pressie today from my big sis, Maeve - perfect!
