First Christmas Tablescape of 2012

 
I know I am early but there are 2 reasons I am doing this. First is that last year, I did not put up any Christmas tablescapes nor decor because they were redoing our floors and 2 daughters were having babies in Florida so I was mostly out of town welcoming the grands and tending to them. I am making up for that or I can say that I am actually a year late, lol.
 
Secondly, I have too many Christmas dinnerware sets and I want to use them all.
 
And so without further ado, I am starting with my 12 days of Christmas salad plates from William Sonoma, except I only have a seating for 8 so only the first 8 days of Christmas plates are used here.
 
Also, please scroll down one post below to see my Christmas decorations. That was a lot of work! Whew!



The tablecloth is also 12 days of Christmas, also from WS. We bought these 2 years ago from Spanish Fort, on our way to Pensacola to visit John's dad, who unfortunately passed away at the age of 90 a few months ago.


"Believe" charger plates from TJ Maxx. I was selling these at my booth, which I have closed since, due to flooding
 and I am so glad they did not sell. The champagne flutes are Mikasa's "Gemstone", wine glasses are Italian from HG (can't remember pattern name) and the glasses are Winterberry by Pfaltzgraff.
The flatware are German and the dinner plates are St. Helena from Z Gallerie.



The napkin rings were Ebay finds from a while back and the napkins were off season clearance from a local shop.
 I used a bowl on a pedestal and filled it with mercury silver balls from Southern Living at Home. Then I took a square Winterberry tray and filled it with holly berries that I cut out from our bushes outside and surrounded the bowl with them.


I bought this set of hurricane candle holders which also matches the pedestaled bowl on the center of the table, from Fred's, the first Christmas after we moved in this town 5 years ago. This is the second time I am using them. I like the crackling of the glass and the subtle silver scrolly design. I surrounded their bases with a strings of bling.





I love how you can see the tree in the living room from here.

Thanks you so much for stopping by. I appreciate the hostesses very much also. Thanks for throwing these fun parties!
