Winterberry Table

I am thankful that I have this little table in the kitchen that I can still do tablescapes on. At least I can have a little Christmas here at home while the floors are being done and while boxes and furniture are everywhere the floors are not being touched.

Today, I am sharing a tablescape using some Pflatzgraff Winterberry table things. I took the pictures with the lights off with only candlelight and enjoyed enjoyed playing with my new camera.

I tried the black and white setting of the the camera highlighting just the greens. I thought it is pretty neat on how it turned out.

I have black and blue ones too of this flatware set in San Remo pattern, that I bought from Neiman Marcus when it went on sale. Do you think I like them enough? You betcha!

The red and green tablecloth came from Walmart after Christmas sale last year. I think I bought it for about $5 and it is long, fits my big formal dining room table. I just folded it in half to fit this square table.

Since I decided not to decorate for Christmas, I did not take down the many bins that contain Christmas ornaments from the attic so everything I used here is what is easily accessible to me.

A few days ago, I went to donate some clothes to a local Thrift Shop and when I do that, I always walk through the store before I leave. I saw these 2 small gold Christmas trees and bought them for $1.50 each. I like the texture and how they glow with the candle light and they are now part of my centerpiece.

And of course, I like to make use of our own holly berries from the yard. We have so many of them lining the whole long driveway and they are full of red berries.

The red crystal stems were from Homegoods in Pensacola. They are Italian made and had a "La Reine" sticker on them.

I placed more holly berries inside a small cloche to fill the table.
I place some faux crystals held up a chain around it. I have a lot of them and I brought them from Florida. My daughter's in laws were giving them away and I took a lot with the idea of using them for napkin holders and to decorate cloches. I got more Christmas decorations like some crochet Victorian cups, fans, musical tree ornaments, etc, and also Santa and some little girl dolls. I had so much fun going through the bins and although I picked a lot, most of them were left in my daughter's garage because my luggage was already 50 lbs. Anyway, I will get them the next time I go there which is within 2 weeks. I am bringing an extra luggage next time since I am flying SW.

I used Winterberry glasses also.

I used my little potted rosemary name plate holders again, after all, rosemary herbs are evergreens.

White dinner plates are "Bianca" from Neiman Marcus. I also added salad plates from the same set and then layered each place setting further with clear Winterberry glass appetizer plates on top.

I hope you enjoyed my first Christmas tablescape. Thank you so much for stopping by. I also thank the following hostesses who I am linking to:
