Christmas Tablescape

It's time for Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch. Be sure to visit this weeks participants.

This week I will share the tablescape in my living room dining area. Since I am already late posting this & I have to hurry up and get ready for our work party. I'm going to try & keep my talking to a minimum. And that will be difficult for me.

I placed Santa hats on each chair.

I got the Santa pants from Lillian Vernon on clearance last year.

Glitter sign was from Walmart this year.

The mercury glass votive cups were from Target this year.

Glasses are from Walmart
Silverware from Brylane Home. Clearance item earlier this year.

Napkins from Kohl's, just got them last weekend.

Dollar Tree snowflakes make great place mats.

Chargers from Big Lots

Christopher Radko dinner plates from Target. I got them about 7 years ago. But still saw them at Target this year. I did pick up the matching salad plates from Goodwill for less than $1.00 a piece. But didn't use them in this tablescape.

I decided to use these salad plates instead. They are still Christopher Radko & were from Target.
The silverware stockings were a clearance item from Lillian Vernon last year as well.

I made the cake plate. The cloche is new. Filled it with large jingle bells I got from Joann Fabric a couple of years ago. The jingle bell garland around the bottom of the cloche came from Michael's last year.

My hubby wants me to say that we will be gathering around the 120 year old pump organ to sing Christmas carols. He lives in a dream world. We don't sing in my family. But I could play Christmas carols on it, if I tried.

Well I hope that you enjoyed my Christmas tablescape. Hopefully I will get my dining table in the family room cleared off & set by next Thursday. Keep your fingers crossed.

Now I'm off to my work party. But I will be stopping by to visit your blog when I return if you leave me a comment or are participating this week in Tablescape Thursday.

Have a great day!

  15. We must be soul sistas separated at birth. I bought the same snowflakes for placemats, same silverware, but at Tuesday Morning, same jingle bells for filler, and have a similar tablescape that I need to do a post on. The only thing I haven't got is those dishes. Hmmmm....don't tempt me! Enjoy singing Christmas carols! LOL! We don't sing in my house either...unless it's to ESPN!
