Take some time to reflect on past holidays. A quiet time with a hot cup of spiced tea and a box of old photographs. Remember those loved ones that are no longer with us and savor the special memories...memories that will stay with us forever.
Bring out the family heirlooms and your Mother's vintage china. Set the dining table early and get into the mood for fall. Use the bowls for soup suppers, use the teacups for dessert get-togethers and layer sandwich deli meats and cheeses on the turkey platter! I simply adore beeswax tapers in vintage silver candlesticks.
