Christmas is clearly descending upon us! I haven't figured out where the year has gone. Now I know what my mother meant when she said the years were flying by.
I have built the table around the red and white I pulled from the tablecloth. Can you believe I didn't choose green instead of red! I tried to keep it really simple in this season that can become very stressful.
The dishes are either solid white or solid red.
The flatware is my Oneida Louisiana, which I have used often lately.
The glassware is an etched pattern clear and a red with a clear stem. The maker and pattern are not known.
The napkins are a red linen that I tied in a knot and added a white poinsettia.
The centerpiece is one of my many white tureens, this one is Himark Courtyard and the underplate is a really nice deep platter by Johnson Brothers that looks like it came with the tureen. The candlesticks are some you have seen many times.

Some of these prices are from a few years ago... but if you are lucky enough to hit a thrift store when they are having senior discount or a managers special you can find things for almost nothing...it is just being in the right place at the right time.
Thanks for the visit today...come back the next time!
I will be joining a few parties and hope you will follow me.
