Christmas was a journey!!!

The journey to Christmas was fun.

A few moments from our first Christmas in our new home:
We managed to beat snow and ice and arrived in the Uk
 from Texas, Beijing and Norwich (just up the road!)

First job was to assemble a couple of tables (IKEA of course!) so we could all sit down together.
The house has none of our furniture yet.


Elements of the table include:
 linen table cloths from Beijing
tulips from Amsterdam
wine from the Virgin wine bank
company from round the world

Just a glimpse of our table, set for our meal on Christmas Eve: 
Jul candles - present from Linda in Denmark, keeping our Danish traditions alive
red linen table runners, sewn by me in Beijing
silver crackers - individually made for us by Gemma & Jesper in Norwich
glasses etc from IKEA


A Christmas we will always remember.
Hope yours was too.

What great memories of a wonderful family Christmas! Those days getting ready for the festivities (ie setting the stage) are so special. Can't wait till next time!!

I admire how quickly you could create a feeling of 'home' in spite of having just moved.
I hope that you will settle in no time (I moved in October, and there are still bits and pieces to be taken care of).
