Life moves at a fast and furious pace at my house. Dinner is a no-nonsense affair with the basic food groups accounted for and a minimum of fuss. But the Holidays are different. Life slows down. The meal is cherished. Special. I pull out the china and linen napkins and make sure the knife is on the correct side with the blade facing the correct way.
And there is one other things I like to do: Add that touch that is uniquely us. My family loves to create. Sometimes it is the centerpiece or the placemats. Once it was even construction paper turkey hats =)
This year: NAPKIN RINGS FROM RECYCLED SHAMPOO BOTTLES.
