OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere is still some last minute shopping to do and presents to be wrapped, but the table is set for Christmas dinner.  I’m not sure what that says about my priorities!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt was easy to get this one ready  because, as shown last week, one centerpiece is common to all the tables prepared for the holidays.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAll that has to be done is exchanging one set of dishes for another.  This time the tableware is the traditional Spode Christmas tree pattern sitting on chargers on sale at Michael’s for 70 cents each.  If you have a store nearby, the Christmas chargers are a great buy!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI did change out the napkins for some hastily made ones from fabric that had been in my studio for some time.  The edges are serged with gold metallic thread that matches the stitching on the table runner.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWith the pronounced holly berry pattern in the napkin, this napkin ring is perfect.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs with all the holiday tables, stemware repeating the Christmas tree pattern is used and for water my favorite cranberry thumbprint glasses that seem to go with most everything I have.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASo, there it is, a table full of Christmas cheer.  The only thing missing is you, and I do hope you enjoy your table wherever you are.

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
