Rearranging Table at Christine's Corner

It's my favorite day of the week so even if I did not have time to prepare for a tablescape, I just do not want to miss this event that Susan of http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ is hosting. We have been busy with company this week. My ex co worker who came for a visit left last Sunday at noon and then my step daughter and her hubby arrived at night on the same day. It gave me just enough time to change beddings in the guest room.
Today, my stepdaughter Heather asked if I had a dinnerware set that I can let go cause they could use one. I told her she can have one of the sets at the store so we went there. She picked what she wanted and I packed them in a box to be loaded in the car. Then, I noticed that my turkey plates are no longer on the table. They were sold! I hurried and replaced them with the snowman plates sitting on the next table, which I am showing you. Ok, you will have to forgive me because this was created really fast so it is kinda mix matched.
I actually have another tablescape that I creted tonight but I am busy cooking and I have no time to take pictures yet so I will show it to you maybe next week.

I just took whatever I could use for a centerpiece and I got ahold of the a mercury vase and a round tea light holder. The tulip candle holders were already there.


Then I spotted some red and white plate chargers that said "Believe" with a snowflake on them and I added those as one more layer, more like storing them there.

Actually as we walked out, I spotted a tall wooden angel with a Christmas tree from another vendor and I bought it and placed it as part of my centerpiece but I forgot to take pictures. I am going back on Friday to add holly berries in the mercury vase to create height so this tablescape is not done. I am also replacing the table runner into something more Chrismassy and replacing the flatware too. I will show the table again when it is complete to my satisfaction but for now, here it is!


Thank for viewing my impromptu tablescape. Thanks Susan for another table play time!
