It's time to set the table again for Tablescape Thursday. This week has been a busy one of decking the halls, so my table is a bit more simple than usual.
Come and have a seat at my "Signs of Christmas" table, you know I always set a place just for you.
An over view of the table.
Overview of the centerpiece.
Love the trees on the dishes with the tree in my dining room.
A view from the other side.
I know that I've had this same tablecloth for the past three weeks and I promise I'll change it next week -- but I do love the lace cascade (Thanks Karen!)
My first sign of Christmas on the table is the wreath and red candle -- very traditional for our Christmas table when I was growing up, how about yours? Nothing prettier on a door than an evergreen wreath with a big red bow.
This is my favorite kind of snow...faux! We had a pretty little dusting on Saturday - very lovely and then gone by lunchtime...just the way I like it.
Johnson Brothers Christmas dishes were purchased last year from Marshall's -- I saw them again this year as well. Love the Christmas trees ---the second sign of Christmas on my table today.
Green glass chargers came from a trip to Virginia Beach in 2009.
Target flatwear from a couple of years ago.
I purchased these cream damask napkins last year from eBay -- the red silk poinsettias (the third sign of Christmas) were from Target's Christmas ornament section this year. They have clips on the back. I tied ribbon around the napkins and clipped the flowers on. $1 each.
I found these red glasses last year at a Christmas open house at a local antique store.
I found these wine glasses at GoodWill a few months ago and I was really surprised when....
.....I purchased this magazine last month and opened it up only to see....
....the exact same etched wine glasses! (now if I could only find that decantur too!)
Time to light the candle, and enjoy a rest from all the hustle and bustle of Christmas. How about you? I hope you'll visit Susan of "Between Naps on the Porch" to see signs the Christmas season on tabletops all over blogland.
