For my table this year, I borrowed this little miniature Santa and sleigh from my Deparment 56 Charles Dickens collection.
Accenting with silver this Christmas on a red and green linen tablecloth from Williams Sonoma.
Pairing cups and saucers from Pfaltzgraff with my mother's frosty plates and glasses. I wish I could tell you where the translucent frosty dinnerware came from, but have no idea and there's not an inscription on the back. I just know they were my mom's and I cherish them.
Placesettings are stacked, starting with silver chargers from Big Lots, alternating green and red linen napkins from Williams Sonoma, frosty plates with holly, and topped with silver star ornaments tied with a red bow.
These will probably serve as my place-cards. I'll write their names on the ribbons with a silver paint pen.
Each guest is a STAR!
Hanging from the chandelier are silver ornaments.
Cigar Man loves boiled custard so we have cups from my mom's collection and a crystal pitcher waiting on the buffet.
A silver cake server is also waiting for dessert.
And last but not least, a sentimental pie plate from a very good friend balances my buffet vignette. Love the verse! In the few months I have been blogging, all of you blogging friends have certainly warmed my heart with your stories and glimpses of your homes.
Merry Christmas to all of you!
