Snowmen, Cardinals and Poinsettas


It's play time again for dishaholics. And I am one of them! Good thing Susan of http:// betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/
decided to host a party so we can release our energies.

Meet my snowman family! Together they form my centerpiece.





Old Britain Castles transferware. The placemats have cardinals on them but the plates are covering them.





Cardinal napkin rings.


The champagne flutes are Mikasa and the goblets are Platzgraff's Winterberry.

I have had the big snowman since we lived in Florida but I just bought the S & P shaker from one of the other vendors in the store for $1.50.










I bought this snowman cookie jar from another vendor in the store for $5.00. He is so cute! Can you tell that I love snowmen? Of course I love a lot of other things too, lol.



Thanks for coming by. I hope you get to visit Susan and her other participants also. Don't forget to get ready for Kathleen's white Christmas party on the 15th.

I love your dishes, Christine, and the snowmen are SO cute. All you need is a little snow falling softly outside your windows! You did a wonderful job as always!

XO,
Jane

Well soon you will have bought out the other vendors, but then you can resell them in your store! LOL
The table looks wonderful! I love all your snowmen, great deals too!

Beautiful table, beautiful photos. It's often so hard to get great photos in the dark but yours always turn out great. Love the ambiance with the candles.

Fabulous Christine!

I love the warmth of this setting. I have to tell you that when I pulled up your images, my little guy Daniel was standing right behind me and said "ooh daddy, I want to go there". Thank you for sharing and happy holidays

I love how this table looks with the candlelight. It seems as each little "person" is carrying their own candle. The snowmen are so happy...I love the stemware. I hope you are having fun with the holiday preparation and that your mom is doing well. It must be busy having the shop and getting ready!

HI Christine! Oh, I love this table!! How sweet are all your little snowmen. Those are some very pretty dishes and I'm seeing them all over Blogland! I need some too! :) Your candlelight is so lovely.
Did you get a new camera? Oh, your snaps are so beautiful!
Be a sweetie,
shelia ;)

That cute group of snowmen huddled together with the candlight illuminating them is absolutely adorable. I think they make the table. You could have made this super casual with them but instead you chose elegant stemware and plates and I love that juxtaposition. They seem happy to be there too. I can't get over your Mikasa flutes. They are the most stunning ruby glassware I have seen. What a wonderful wintery table. Love it.

This is beautiful. How IS IT that you can manage to even make snowmen elegant and lovely? My table just looks like a page out of a coloring book instead.

I love the dishes that you used, too. I think that's the prettiest thing about the table. I also love the way you created the centerpiece, too.

As I have come to expect, your table is a favorite.

Hey, Christine! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog earlier and your glowing comments. You are very kind, and I'm glad you finally found me! Looks like you've been a busy woman this week yourself!!! Your table is so fun with all the snowmen, and I LOVE your red Mikasa stemware! It has been tough for me to find nice TALL stemware like that in red here in the Kansas City, MO area. You hit the jackpot! Have a wonderful weekend!
