Happy New Year!

I had a small supper for a few friends before a party tonight: It's not New Years Eve in my book without sauerkraut and kielbasa! I kept the centerpiece simple -just a bunch of candles on an antique mirror. A celebration of light!
I used an assortment of mismatched crystal, my grandmothers silver, my coalport harebell china and some white napkins. Nothing special but I thought it was pretty - and simple! I hope everyone has a Happy New Year!!

Stefan- Did you say simple?? Simple is defined as: plain,basic, or uncomplicated in form, nature, or design. There is nothing "simple" about anything that you do! Happy New Year!

Had a great dinner at a home on the harbour, but the fireworks were postponed until this evening due to the wind.
