Christmas Table #6!

The inspiration for this table was another poinsettia tablecloth. I didn't realize I had so many poinsettia linens. The napkins are held with a rustic star adorned with a gingham bow and red bells. They are actually Christmas tree ornaments.

The plate stack is all Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage leaf in white and green.

The flatware is green Oxford Hall Fashion Wear.

The water stem is Ivima 1895 Hobnail and a green Imperlux wine hocks.

The centerpiece is a fishbowl ringed with candy canes and green candle holders.

Thanks for visiting today...hope you will return next time.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Christmas Table #5

I will be joining Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish with the fifth Christmas table I have done this year! I am going to try to squeeze in at least one more.

The tablecloth was the starting point... multi-colored poinsettia/fruit, paired with cream napkins. I used raspberry Nancy Calhoun Solid Color chargers and salad plates. The dinner plate is Home Hearthstone.

The glassware is Cristal D'Arques Longchamp, iced tea and wine. The Oneida Louisiana rounds each placesetting. The flatware is tarnishes, anyone else ever have that happen? Weird. I did clean the ones that were tarnished before using them. I just never had any stainless tarnish.

The centerpiece is a crystal stemmed serving bowl filled with Christmas ornaments and each place setting has a poinsettia ornament and a small votive holder.

Thanks for taking the time to visit today...I hope you return the next time.
Merry Christmas to everyone!

Christmas Table #4

This table is for all who really love red...the table is filled with it!
 I am doing sort of a non-traditional table today...starting with a solid black tablecloth. On top of the cloth is a black and cream tablerunner with poinsettias. There are matching napkins, too. I found this set a couple years ago and it is one of my favorites for the holidays. This table only took a few minutes to put together...I ♥ simple tables. I pulled out the red and white from the runner...leaving green for another day.

The placesetting starts with a Bordallo Pinheiro white cabbage leaf charger which is topped with a bright red BHG dinner plate. The salad plate is white with raised pine cones are topped with a red ornament.

The flatware is Oxford Hall Fashion Wear in red...I now have all the colors! The napkin is held with a solid red ring.

The stemware is Ivima 1895 Hobnail.

I had Erin pick up a live to see how long it takes for it to die...for some reason I just can't seem to keep one alive more than a day or two. I even took it out of the original pot and put it in a small tureen. Candles and bottle brush trees make up the rest of the centerpiece.

Thanks for stopping by today...hope you will return next time.
