Christmas traditions shared by friends and family are to me what makes the season so special.
One tradition that is dear to me is a holiday dinner hosted by my friend.
Last Saturday was our twelfth holiday dinner and the table was so awesome, I had to share.
The table was Greek themed, starting with the gold layers patterned with a Greek key edge.
Our placecards were even written in Greek!
The centerpiece was a collection of busts wearing crowns of boxwood.
They all looked like Greek gods!
White roses, white amaryllis and boxwood in little mint julep cups completed the centerpiece.
Flower arranging is obviously my friend's passion!
An urn in the hall holds white hydrangeas and winter greens, lit with lights.
At the base of the urn, a Greek crown sits atop a book of Greek art.
Of course the menu was entirely Greek, starting with avgolemono soup, followed by lamb and Greek green beans.
I really do think my friend outdid herself on this one!
I don't think I've ever seen a more elegant table setting.
It's pure eye candy!
When I think about the effort that went in to creating it, it's mind boggling!
