Vintage Christmas Bakery

Thursday, November 17, 2016

Happy Thursday, My Lovelies!  I Hope your week has been fantastic so far.  We've been busy decorating for Christmas, and we have a theme this year:  Vintage Christmas Bakery.

This theme will come into play when I share my Advent Calendar beginning December 1st.  Can you guess what I'll be sharing along with scripture reading this year?  I bet you can!

Our theme is most evident in our kitchen and on our breakfast room table.

The table is set and ready for hot cocoa (although we might need to run our air conditioner) and Christmas confections.

Caution!  Many photos ahead!

The little Poinsettia napkin rings are my favorite!

We've replenished our vintage Christmas sprinkles.

I had to buy the table runner and napkins because off the vintage print and the pink that matches our kitchen island.

Our aprons match!

Strawberry and vanilla cupcakes with strawberry icing and peppermint sprinkles.

Red velvet and white chocolate cupcakes with vanilla icing and vintage sugar sprinkles

I can't wait to begin our holiday baking!
