New Year's Even Celebration, Part II

Continuing with our evening of celebration, here are a few more shots taken throughout the house.

This beautiful shot of the fireplace mantel in the living room.  Proudly displayed is a new wooden nutcracker that Steven received as a gift from Bev.

It was so cold on New Year's Eve that we set bottles of champagne outside on the deck to keep them cool.  Just before midnight I went out and opened a bottle and poured the glasses.  I left them to sit on the deck railing for just a few minutes and then brought them inside and handed a champagne coup to everyone.  When midnight arrived and the ball fell, we all turned up our glasses and enjoyed some super-chilled bubbly.  It was delicious.  Champagne must be cold, cold, cold for my palate.  This was perfect.

A few more wide shots of the table.

I wanted the house aglow with candlelight.

And I think we were successful in achieving that goal.

Such a beautiful table and a happy event spent with people we love.  Thank you Bev, for all your help and your gifts.  Thank you Bob and Bette for the goodies and your company.

We have great expectations for 2015.
