And So this is Christmas

The table is laid on my verandah ready for  lunch tomorrow

Santa is watching over



The tree is up



Santa ready to welcome visitors


Angels watching over the wine!


Santa watching over the glasses
Roses are ready for the table
The front courtyard ready for the onslaught
Santa waiting for the presents to arrive
The last batch of mince pies (click here for recipe) just coming out of the oven and then off to bed - its a busy day tomorrow.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to visit Magnolia Verandah this year - Merry Christmas to you all and wish you a fabulous 2013.
