Upstairs at the Annual Christmas Party...Seating for 28

When you are going to feed 50 people, you have to make use of everywhere you can set up a table.  We put some hard sheets of insulation down to make the table flat, then set it for a table of 14.

I love the sprigs of poinsettia as the centerpiece.  Note, they don't live long once you have cut them if you ever try this.

Not sure these old plates were meant for Christmas, but they are the perfect colors!

We set up several tables upstairs.

The candy decorated table for four!

The Santa table will seat four also.

Another table for four.

A cozy table for two.

We call this the Easter egg tree.  Mom saw these lights at Nordstroms and fell in love.  I bought them for her and she decided that she was a traditionalist and not into the pastel colors.  Now they adorn my upstairs tree!

A seating area...

Of course, a cabinet that was intended for a permanent fixture upstairs!

A few posts back, I had these blue decorations on my mantel, but it did not last long.

A little Church village.

View coming up the stairs...

I love pictures...most of these are Christmas ones.

Santa greeted everyone as they came up the stairs.

I just love this table!
I must say that seating 28 people upstairs for dinner created some heat!  Next year, I will have to turn the air-conditioning on upstairs no matter the weather outside.  The pool table seems to be the most popular seating always fills up fast.  Decorating all the tables is one of my favorite parts!
