I know, I know, I disappeared! Honestly, this is just the busiest time of year for me as a church musician, so I have been MIA, but I desperately needed another creative outlet besides music, so I put together a table today with some borrowed china!!
This beautiful dinnerware is Certified International "Winter Wonderland" by Susan Winget. Of course, I borrowed it from my mother:-) She also gave me the beautiful ruby Noritake "Perspective" glassware for Christmas. I have used a runner I made out of the same fabric I covered the chair seats in.
I have also used my Mikasa "Italian Countryside" flatware along with the rattan chargers I *always* use and the bamboo napkin rings from BBB. I wanted to show you that it is possible to use your everyday things even at Christmas and still make it special. The beautiful napkins are "Poet Jacquard" in forest green from April Cornell.
All of these pieces feature different winter scenes...
All of the floral arrangements came from a local nursery, Savannah Farms, several years ago. I have several pieces from them and not only are they beautiful, they are so well put together, and you would never know they are not real.
My Christmas present from my mom...the beautiful Noritake "Perspective" glassware.
I'm happy to be back with a Christmas table! My plan is to use the same centerpiece and show you how to make it different each week with just a few different pieces.
Of course, my main focus this season as always, is giving back and sharing our blessings with others. No matter what we have, we can share something with someone. Please think about those who are cold, hungry, and lonely this season and do something to help someone. If everyone did something, no one would be in need. Please just look outside your door, and I'm sure you will find someone to share with. The best gift this season, is giving yourself:-)
I'll be joining "Tablescape Thursday" over at "Between Naps on the Porch" so please go by there and see some incredible tables!!
Blessings this Christmas season:-)
