This was how we set the table for Christmas. I had no matching dishes and that called for some shopping. Thomas thought my everyday dishes were fine and my thought was no. They are cute dishes with blue and pink yet not what I wanted for Christmas and I also only had 7 since I broke one on our anniversary (oops). I had been wanting white dishes for the last few years. We were out shopping one day at a second hand store and I came across a stack of 12 white plates at 99 cents a plate. Now I have beautiful white plates with the white raised fruit trim. My Mom also made me some napkins from some material I had picked. Then the next issue was glasses. I again didn't have enough for everyone. I found some glasses and the gold chargers at Walmart. Anybody want to come over for dinner?
