Red and White and a bit of Sparkle!

Welcome everyone! It's that special time of year. Loved ones come together and EAT! I put together a red and white Tablescape this week. Full of ornaments, pearls, candles and sparkle!
Please be sure to check out Susan's wonderful blog @ http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/
for beautiful Tablescapes and
for more Thrifty treasures!

I placed all the ornaments on a narrow mirror I found years ago at Ross. The red dishes are a wonderful thrift store find, the white salad plates I've had for years. The new little dessert dishes I found at Walmart just by accident but I love them!

Ornaments galore! My favorite colors are red and white!

I made bows and wired little miniature ornaments to them for inexpensive napkin rings.
So glad you could stop by. Come back tomorrow if you get a chance. I'm showing my little kitchen tree....gingerbread men and small miniatures have just been bursting at the seams in my kitchen!

The table setting looks so pretty. I'm sure everyone you know wants to come to your house to eat, just so they can sit at your beautiful table. I love the bead and pearl necklaces used as part of the centerpiece. What a great idea!

I love your table and those little candy ornaments are adorable. I'm going to print this and try to duplicate this for next year. It's something my grandchildren would love and I'm all about pleasing them.

Thanks for inspiring me.

Hugs, Gretchen
