Christmas Breakfast Table

Every Christmas morning we open our gifts and then the four of us sit down for our traditional breakfast.  My husband always cooks the eggs and bacon, while the kids and I make the toast and cut up the fruit.  The table setting is usually pretty simple.

This year I am playing around with this setting
to go along with some of the other black, white and red decor this year.

If you try really hard, 
you can see some black and white in the family room.

And I do have this vignette on the kitchen counter.

To coordinate with the black and white theme, 
I clipped these chalkboards to the napkins.  
A great find in the sale bins at Michael's.

The plates are Mikasa - Italian Countryside.

I swear this is my favorite tablecloth.
I think I bought it at Kohl's years ago.

One more thing I can cross of my list!
