Santa and Snowman

I hope you all are enjoying this Christmas season, though hectic it may be. By the time this post, I am already in Florida with one of my daughters and I am hoping at least 1 baby has arrived. But I am sure you will be among the first ones to know.

Before I left, I set this delightful table, maybe John will smile everytime he passes by it, even though he may be missing me terribly. I wish! LOL!

Anyway, I love santa and the snowman so I decided to make them my theme. I think they are both fun. I just bought this sleigh from another booth next to my booth in the store, for $5. I like that it is heavy and feels like bronze. You don't see it in this photo but it has 2 reindeers pulling it. Little snowman name plate holder is taking a ride on the sleigh.

I decided not to use a tablecloth but I used a red and green plaid table runner.
Ceramic chargers with "Believe" and snowflake inscribed. Underneath is a round silver (more like pewter) sequined placemat.

Snowman dinner and salad plates.

My ex co worker, Gwen, who just visited us, gave me a set of these stocking flatware holders. Aren't they cute? I think they give my table a touch of whimsy.

I have them in 3 main colors, red, green and white but I did not use the white ones this time.

Green and red stemware.

I found this from another vendor at the store. It is a big lidded white urn with green grapes and it is a light. I thought it was unusual. The little cute snowman was $1 from St. Andrews thrift store where I usually give donations.

Do you see the gifts on the kitchen counter that I still have to deliver?

Looks like I just captured the blue hour. Look at that pretty deep blue sky outside!

Another shot showing the blue sky.

Here is a better photo of the urn light and snowman.

Do you like my Santa? Isn't he handsome? He is one of the many free Christmas items I got from my daughter's in laws.

The napkin holders were another thrifty finds. I bought them last year from another vendor in the store for $5 I think, and there are 6 of them. They are really nice and heavy and I like their shade of green color.

I also bought this big but cute snowman from another vendor in the store, for $5.

And that concludes my tablescape for this week and this should remain until I get back home, possibly in early February. John never takes them apart, lol.

I am glad you all stopped by, Thanks.
