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!


  1. It looks FAB!! I love it! Your attention to detail, wow! and I long for next year when we stay home!!!!! I'll be the year planning it! x x x

  2. OMG, I know. Don't laugh but I am already planning this year's table. Nutjob or what?!?!?! (Sorry, didn't see this comment until now.)
