Christmas Home Tour

Merry Christmas! We have a white Christmas here in New York. About 4-5" of snow fell overnight, a serene sight to wake up to.  Yesterday, we successfully hosted our first holiday gathering, Christmas Eve dinner. You can read more about the menu and planning here. It was so much fun having our family over and 100% stress-free thanks to the Holiday Planner and Schedule, linked in my Christmas Eve post.

And photos from Christmas Eve dinner last night :)

Gingerbread place settings - a tradition my paternal grandmother had when she hosted!

Bayberry wax comes from boiling the berries and skimming off the precious wax coating.
It is the rarest and most prized of all candle waxes.

According to tradition, to bring good luck, you must burn a Bayberry Candle on Christmas Day.
If the flame burns bright and the light shines clear, then heaven will bless you throughout the year.

Merry Christmas!
