Well as most of you know this is a very hard time for my family.  I am full of nervous energy not knowing what the next day will bring.   I didn't know what to do with myself today so I dismantled the exsisting tablescape of bright red/green.

I have faith and hope that my father is in peace and will go when it is time, although we are hoping that we get as many days as possible.

I chose to do a simple tablescape using little white doves and champagne colored ornaments on a vintage style tree.  I surrounded it with praying angel candleholders and lots of candles.

This tablescape was created as a tribute to my father who is battling cancer. I used white doves and champagne colored ornaments on a vintage style tree as the centerpiece. 

The dove is known as a sign of love, peace and hope. I have hope that he will hang in there a little longer and celebrate Christmas with all of his family around him.


Here is a short video featuring this same tablescape
