Christmas Table


I never use my dinning room or my wedding china, so I thought I would stage the dinning room with my wedding china this year. It turned out beautifully, so beautiful that my children want to eat in here every night now. We did have a candle light spaghetti dinner in here tonight while my husband was at the temple, just me and the four munchkins. The loved it and even cleaned up the table afterwards.

I got the cone trees from the dollar tree and I love them. I only bought three and Lovey has already destroyed the green one. I wish I had bought more. I think I'll go tomorrow and see if any are left.

The red votives are from Target and they were a steal at $.99. When lit they are even prettier than the mercury glass ones that I got from PB a couple of years ago. They have gold, green, and silver. I think I'll go and get four green ones. You never know when you'll need some pretty candlelight.

The center piece is from a metal bowl from Cracker Barrel that my mom bought me about 10 years ago. I love it. It's filled with pine cones, wreath balls, and green faux fruit and even a veggie. The red toile fabric is just some I have left over from a project, I love toile and use it whenever I can. The china is Mikasa Lace and I'm not certain what the stemware is. This is my first link up to Table scape Thursday. I've loved looking at other people's table for over a year now and I've finally got something to add. I'm so excited. Happy Holidays
