Every year around this time
I get excited to bring out my Christmas dishes
and use them in a new and different way.
This year I decided to stick
with my overall red and white Christmas theme.
It all began with the red and white
Christmas Crackers that I found at Home Goods.
We love opening the crackers and reading
the riddles and jokes at the dinner table.
And the paper hats always make for fun pictures.
I tied up my silver and red napkins
with white yarn and tucked a little greenery
in the middle.
Classic Christmas colors.
The white chargers are from One King's Lane
and my Christmas dishes were purchased
at Macy's about 15 years ago.
The salad plates have a
"Night Before Christmas" theme.
The snowy white deer taking center stage
were a last minute buy at Tuesday Morning.
I saw them earlier in the week
but hemmed and hawed about whether
or not to buy them.
I went back this weekend
and was so happy that they were still there!
I sprinkled snow on a white runner
around them and added a few
natural pine cones.
I filled the two hurricane glasses
with cranberries and greens
surrounding a candle.
I bought the mirrored candle squares
at an Estate sale this summer.
A plaid wool throw rests on the host
and hostess chair
to add some cozy goodness.
I pick these throws up at Estate sales
whenever I find them.
I never pay more than $10.00.
I took an idea from Pinterest
and tied some red ribbon
around my skirted chairs
and added a glass pine cone
and some greenery.
In keeping with the red and white theme
I filled my vintage antler ice bucket
with red and white roses.
It just looks so wintery to me.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
And to All a Good Night!
