Christmas to me is not complete without a Nativity. After all, that is the true meaning of Christmas. But it is not complete to me without the snowman and Santa either. They just add to the fun in celebrating the season and the birth of our Lord.
I set the table in the breakfast nook, just for 2, not too much work since I already had the centerpiece set there.
The centerpiece consists of a big heavy wooden snowman I bought from Lynne's Gifts and More about 3 years ago (has it been that long, really?), flanked by 3 Christmas trees in varying sizes and candles.
The wine glasses are by Mikasa and the small Bohemian flutes are from Ebay.
Snowman hitched a ride on Santa's sleigh (salt and pepper shaker) and as to be expected, 2 big guys can be cramped in a sleigh, lol.
The white and blue table runner has more snowmen.
Do you like my chair covers (2 santas and 2 snowmen)? I bought them from another booth in the store where my booth used to be. They were so cheap, can't remember exactly remember how much though but something like $8 for all of them. That's what I miss most about having the booth, shopping from the others, lol.
Snowmen napkin rings, deep blue napkins, blue San Remo flatware from Horchow. I like this flatware pattern very much and I have them in black and red also.
I thought the tin white lace plate charger works well here.
The salad plate has 1 snowman and look at the Christmas trees, it matches what I have on the centerpiece. I did not even notice until now.
The dinner plate has 2 snowmen on it.
A little snowman hot chocolate cup and some tea light candles make the table cozy, in spite of all the snow.
I love the blue light of the pool in the background. Let's just pretend it's a blue light reflecting on a white snow, lol.
Do you see my big snowman peeking from the floor against the wall?
I really like snowmen. Here's another one on the kitchen island next to my fully bloomed Christmas cactus. He is a cookie jar and I also bought him from another booth when I still had mine. I think I was the #1 shopper there, but I was the #1 seller too.
Thank you very much for your visits and comments. I always appreciate them. I hope you are all enjoying the hustle and bustle of this holiday season.
I also thank the following hostesses even more for their hard work just so we can all have some fun.
