I love this time of year. Even though we are Florida and it is sunny and warm (conditions not readily associated with Christmas) I am decorating just about the whole house. I think it is a blog thing…..
We have forgone the live tree and the big tree and have a cute little tabletop tree that we adorn. As we get older it is harder to heave the big boxes up those pull down stairs into the storage area. More on the tree next week.
I have set the table for Christmas Eve.
I know I need to trim that wick….
The cookies are from the refrigerator section of Publix –
gross not very good but I just wanted to show the aluminum piece.
I made the quilt a few years back. It usually is under the tree. I used a different quilt for the tree this year. I like quilts for tabletops.
The ornaments have been gathered over the years. The ones on the table are too big and too heavy for my tree. I like them with the mercury type chalices that are filled with silk poinsettias.
The chippy white bird is a Pottery Barn acquisition as are the crystal stars.
Faux leaf chargers are covered by white Aplico dinner plates. The decoupage Christmas bird plates are PB and the little sherbet dishes are antiques.
The goblets are Westmoreland English Hobnail but I have been unable to determine who made the etched glassware.
I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Please stop by and see all the pretty dishes and holiday settings.
