The Christmas sideboard / dresser is ready

Our early winter snow has rather thrown my plans out the window as I have rather walked the snow taking lots of photos, than getting ready for Christmas.

This is how previous Christmas sideboards looked in

2015 Christmas sideboard

2016 the-sideboard-is-looking-starting-to-look-festive 

My sideboard / dresser was still not done .... what to do ...

Coffee time - my lovely little niece & I bought each other matching mugs in Johannesburg so we think of each other across the miles ....

I unpacked some favourites - I love these Emma Bridgewater pieces - they just epitomise Christmas

These are needed too ...

Mince pies are always eaten at Christmas on this gifted plate. I like having them on hand on the sideboard / dresser as they can be used easily when needed.

A few things are needed that make you smile ....

I sometimes cut fresh ivy & holly for the winter solstice but with all the snow, that is not happening so some faux strands will help for now ...

The cheese board & cake stand were Oliver Bonas gifts from the girls & they like being there ...

Green, purple, red, white candles on the top will be used over the festive season. I love having the candle sticks on the top ready for the table at night ...

It always feels more festive when the sideboard looks ready & we have the special plates & bowls at hand that we will need. How is your planning going? Thank you for stoping by & taking the time to read & comment!
