This is my final table setting of the Christmas season.
We will enjoy our Christmas dinner at this table.
Mr. B's mother and father will join us for the day.
With the exception of the gold chargers nothing on this table was purchased new.
I had it all.
I started with an embossed red tablecloth that I have had for years.
I pulled some of the salad plates from my kitchen china cabinet for this table.
The salad plate is a thrift store find from last year.
They are marked Reed & Barton Holly Berry.
.50 each and I snagged 8 of them!
Perfect for Christmas!
The dinner plates are another thrift store find.
I instantly fell in love with the open weave, unusual shape and design of them.
It is marked simply, Czechoslovakia.
I only paid $4.00 for four of them.
I folded a simple red napkin and placed it over a gold charger from Michael's.
I purchased the chargers with a gift card that was an early Christmas present from my youngest son.
The gold plated flatware was a Christmas gift,
given to me many years ago when I was a young girl, from my parents.
I wonder if they knew then my future hobby of tablescaping?
The centerpiece is a gold paper mache deer that was a thrift find from several years ago that I paid $1.00 for.
I made up a bow and strung ribbon to the sleigh and then to Santa.
I have had the sleigh for many years but have never used it.
Just last year I filled it with seasonal picks
and it is now a much used display piece at the holidays.
The old world Santa was gift from Mr. B's mother.
She knows how much I love Santa.
Can you call Santa beautiful?
I hope so, because I think he is!
From the bell on his hat to his wise face and flowing suit, he is my favorite
The red and gold tall votive candle holders were, yet another, after Christmas sale find.
I am very thankful for my family and my friends.
I am also thankful for you.
All of your visits and sweet comments
make my day!
I wish you a very Merry Christmas
and I look forward to spending time with you in the new year!
