Tablescape Tuesday!

Christmastime....I love it.... I love snow tipped branches, pinecones, poinsettias....red berries



It is another Tablescape Tuesday! Susan over at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ is the sweet hostess! Be sure you see everyone's submissions, these tables are amazing! By the way her blog is amazing! You should see her new kitchen...oh my!
I found these sweet little cookie cutters years ago, the white fabric napkins are another thrift store find. The plates are from Target a few years ago, I wish I had gotten more, they only had them one year I believe.

Red and white check is my favorite fabric, tablecloth, you name it, if it is red checked I love it! These green glasses are from my hubby's grandmother. They were passed down to us.

Thank you so much for coming by to visit my Christmas Tablescape. Tomorrow I will show my Gingerbread Christmas Kitchen Tree...wow that was a mouthful! Stop back by when you get the chance.

Blessings,

Debbie

Debbie~
The table looks awesome!
So festive!
I hate it when you find something that you like (like your plates) and they only have them for sale for one season and then change the next! It is so frustrating!!!
I really like those plates~
Have a wonderful Tuesday!!!!

Glenda said...

The red and white are so pretty together. I think the solid color of the placemat really helps to show off the lovely plates.
Enjoyed the glimpse of the gingerbread Christmas tree. It seems to match your centerpiece so very well.
