A Christmas Breakfast Story

Last week I participated in a Tablescapes event to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Martin County, Florida.  Specifically, this event raised funds for their Women Build program, which is a really cool program here in Martin county in which a group of women volunteers build a Habitat home for a needy family.

Yay women!!

Partnered with my good friend, Yana Bible, we created a table landscape designed to emphasize Family at holiday time, and all the fun things we do to make it special.  Yana owns Drape Couture, a drapery and softgoods workroom, and she made the tablecloth, the table runners, and our silverware “boots.”  Find her on Facebook here, and Like her page.  She’s dynamite!

And so, without further ado, I bring you….

A Christmas Breakfast Story

It’s a bright, shining Christmas morning, and the family is gathered around their breakfast table to exchange gifts and enjoy their first meal of Christmas day together.  Mom and Dad, still bleary-eyed from the late night preparations, sip Bloody Mary’s and coffee, while the excited children enjoy virgin mimosas in fancy stemmed glasses and wait impatiently for Dad to assemble their newest toys.   The morning sunshine reflects and sparkles off the champagne gold and mercury glass table decorations, warms the fur at the heart of the table, and radiates through the crisp greenery of the fresh cut flowers.
