The Festive table
I have just eaten a "Christmas" sandwich from M&S. It wasn't bad, too cold, but i couldn't wait for it to come up to room temperature, and besides the temperature of this room is lower than that of a fridge.
My mind has wandered to table centres, and samples are being made up. This one is a candle arrangement in a terracotta pot, filled with scented foliage and berries. Here is how to make something similar. Excuse the photography. Cringeworthy. A lot has changed in a year.
I love flowers on a table, but i think I love the food more, and any floral decoration should never interfere with access to the roast potatoes or bread sauce. Think small and more of. Much better to have 5 little arrangements that can slot in between the brussels, that a large central one, that let's face it can sometimes resemble a coffin top.
Oh and a pair of robins Ray and Roxanne popped by, to further enhance our kitsch Christmas collection.
News Flash: Congratulations to Prince William and Kate, engaged, a Royal Wedding in 2011. I can't wait for the souvenir mug.
