photo memories

 family is very important to me and one of my favorite things to do during christmas is look through old family photographs. the pictures are always the highlight of the night. we laugh at our embarrassing school pictures, dad's wardrobe in the 70s and reminisce on the good ol' days. well, for this year i'm going to do something a little different. i'm going to select a few new and old photos and display them in glass jars and scatter them on my table as a centerpiece.
i also love these ideas from {sweet paul}. family photo wrapping paper, gift tags and personalized cupcakes are also great ideas for decorating during the holidays. 

 what is your favorite thing to do during your holiday dinner?

  1. These ideas are so neat! I love all the photo projects you have shared in this post! I think I will have to steal some photographs when I visit my parents. Those cupcake toppers would be hilarious & perfect for their anniversary party!

  6. Just to be able to spend Christmas with my close family is a true blessing to me... and my favorite part of this season. To buy them presents, to set the table for meals, to decorate, to have fun with the kids.... can't wait for this weekend ;))

  11. I love the old photos too! But I must say, I think my favorite thing to add to the table is candles, lots and lots of candles. Candlelight just makes everything seem magical.
