Christmas in the Caribbean


I meant to post this earlier this year when we actually spent Christmas in the Caribbean.

 K and I flew into Trinidad on Christmas day so everything was a whirlwind of celebrations and visiting family/friends.

Christmas lunch was at my Aunt's house who doesn't miss a beat with decorating. The pictures will speak for themselves and the desserts were out of this world!



It was about 25 of us and her place settings and decor were beyond Pinterest pretty for a Caribbean Christmas.
