Here We Go A Caroling!

Are you all ready for Christmas?  
Are your presents all wrapped? (mine aren't)  
Is your menu all planned?  
Is your table all set?  
Well there is one thing I can check off the list.  
This table setting is for Christmas Eve.  
I've had these Carolers forever. 
I love that they are timeless in their plaid and red velvet.  
A few years ago I picked up a set 
of the Christmas Carols salad plates 
after Christmas at Williams Sonoma.  
They go so well with the Pottery Barn Plaid 
dishes and some gold chargers that I had on hand.
I used the flatware that I picked up at World Market 
and Ralph Lauren napkins from Tuesday Morning.
The drums on this plate jogged 
my memory of a pair of drums 
that I had in the storage area.  
I placed one of the Carolers on top of one 
and put a plaid bow atop the other.
  There used to be a place in California 
when I lived there called Shinoda 
where I bought these drums.  
It was a wholesale place to buy all kinds 
of decorative items like greenery, baskets, ribbon 
and all things Christmas!  
I miss that place.  
Around Thanksgiving they would 
showcase all of the Christmas trees 
that they had created.
It was a great place to go for inspiration!

I tied a piece of jute with an acorn hot glued 
on it around the napkin 
and placed some berries inside.  
I have had more fun with my tables 
this year than ever!  
Maybe it's because my creativity outlet 
has been squashed by this whole house sale thing.  
I'm not complaining... 
well a little bit... 
but it is hard to keep everything 
clean and put away.  
I'm kind of a messy creative person 
and so I hate to drag all the stuff out 
knowing that I am going to make a mess.  
I used the last of my fresh greens above the table.  
I bought two at Costco after Thanksgiving 
and kept them in the garage where it is cool.  
They last a long time!
Merry Christmas to all of my readers!  
Have a safe and wonderful holiday 
with your family and friends.  
I can't wait to just relax and enjoy everyone!  
Check out my table that I shared yesterday 
if you are looking for table ideas...  

Better get to the wrapping!

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,

I just love your table, Cindy. I am so in love with plaid and the carolers are fabulous! The place you mentioned sounds just like a place where I worked as a floral designer. Wishing you a merry and blessed Christmas!
