I love setting tables. I set my own – usually 2-3 different ones throughout the Christmas season when we entertain and different ones for the 24th and 25th. As a gift for a friend, I put together a table setting and my kids joked that I ran out of tables at our house before I ran out of ideas!

I try to buy the fabric when it’s on sale and have made different coloured tablecloths and have made a variety of napkins to go with them. I’ve collected sets of coloured chargers (the big plates that go under the dinner plate) and mix and match. Sometimes it’s whimsical and colourful and sometimes a little more formal with cream and gold. I’ll go outside and collect branches or pine cones, use Christmas decorations or dollar store finds. Sitting down to share

About the Author

Rebecca E. Neely was born and raised in a small town in western Pennsylvania. Her father, an English teacher and a writer, instilled in her a love of words, and literature, especially short stories, at a young age. Her mother, a voracious reader, gave her Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild as a Christmas gift when she was nine, and Rebecca’s been hooked on reading stories of all stripes ever since.

Rebecca’s family also owned and managed a restaurant until she was about sixteen, and she grew up in the business, working, cooking, and eating. Rebecca enjoys finding, and reading new authors via her Kindle. Live music inspires her, as do the characters she’s blessed to have in her life, including her daughter, her boyfriend, and her mother. She loves drawing, crafting, walking, and camping. She also enjoys traveling, going to music festivals, and exploring cities she’s never been to before with her daughter.

In a former life, she earned a B.S. in Accounting, and worked in that field for about a decade. Since 2001, Rebecca has freelanced, writing a wide variety of copy for local magazines, and businesses all over the country. She is a member of Savvy Authors, and a PRO member of Romance Writers of America.
