...meanwhile, preparations for our Christmas lunch continue. Here are the place-cards. Kept it simple...that part, anyway. At the risk of sounding corny...Em and I came up with something nice to say about each person in my family...and wrote in on the back of the card.
Em and I both have Friday off work, so up goes the bunting, tables, chairs etc out onto the verandah. Saturday morning we'll start on the final touches: flowers, cloths, napkins, ice and Em will get a chance to fire up our bbq before my lovely brother-in-laws turn up and demand ''burning food'' rights.

I think that is a very nice touch and not at all corny--wait till you see how it makes everyone's day.

These look great! Wow, there will be a few people there huh?

Somehow it has happened that Christmas is at my place now - eeek! But there are only five of us so it will be easy peasy and casual. Looks like you are having a big one! Hope it goes well!
