I did the Christmas Tea last weekend! Last WEEKEND! This month is flying by. I bet it is for you too. Here are some of the tables to give you some ideas for your own tablescapes. I looked closely at these dishes and wow, someone has the same dishes I picked out for my wedding. Ahhh….these were too expensive (What was I thinking), we received every piece of our everyday china, not so much this good stuff. 1982, the blue and rose period of course.
Snow globes that light up from within, and square plates and chargers. Love that and on the red tablecloth.
Simple, rustic elegance. She even made striped chair covers to match. Check out the candleabra. Linda started with a chandelier and added a wooden post so it would stand on the table. Spray painted it the festive red color. Great idea!
More square chargers and isn’t the ribbon wrapping cool? And the clear plate allows for great viewing of the ribbon. Very lovely center piece too.
This is my table. It doesn’t photograph as well as I would have liked. I wanted the heart on the plate to be showcased.
I love glitter and candlelight. I only bought the heart ornament and the little tree. Amazing for me. But I really wanted to try and use what I had.
I always enjoy the traditional red and green. And look at the great idea for the red water glasses. Put candles in them. What is that on the front plate. Oh, ha, ha, it’s her granddaughter’s stuffed animal.
Traditional this table is not. But I wanted you to see how cool it is. Unexpected.
Leaving tomorrow morning for my side of the family’s Christmas up at Zephyr Point. We all stay in Lakeview Lodge (it holds 30 and we’re quickly getting to that number). These two shot are from 2012. Can’t wait. Lot’s of little ones, and laughter, and good family times. Until next week, Hugs, Heidi
