Sunday Table 11

Yesterday when I was setting up our table it was snowing,
and the light was terrible.  You'll see that in the pictures at
the bottom of this post.  But this morning is gorgeous,
so I'm adding a few new pictures.

Here are a few pictures this morning.

Cork chargers, gold place mats, and red for Chinese New Year!
A little morning collage.
{These are the photos from last night!}
Happy Chinese New Year!
 Here is a look at preps
for our family's celebration this year.
You can see our 2012 celebration here.

2013 is the year of the snake.
We used this spiral snake template to make our snakes.
{thank you}

My kiddos had fun getting
the snakes colored and cut out for our festivities.

There are 7 of us for dinner tonight.
{Sadly, our oldest child will be missed.}

We hung three 'good luck' lanterns {local party store}
to add a little more red to our dinner.

I was so excited to find these two platters at Tuesday Morning
not too long ago.
The Chinese take-out theme will be perfect for Chinese New Year.

The centerpiece -- a platter on a cake stand -- filled with fortune cookies.
An appetizer tray [built-on fortune cookie toothpick holder]
and some red money envelopes are also part of the centerpiece.

There is also a red money envelope/snake on each plate.
{No money in our envelopes, just fun wishes for the new year.}

Earlier this week I mentioned last year's celebration here.

Happy Chinese New Year!
