Mostly Snowmen With a Little of Santa

Christmas to me is not complete without a Nativity. After all, that is the true meaning of Christmas. But it is not complete to me without the snowman and Santa either. They just add to the fun in celebrating the season and the birth of our Lord.
I set the table in the breakfast nook, just for 2, not too much work since I already had the centerpiece set there.

The centerpiece consists of a big heavy wooden snowman I bought from Lynne's Gifts and More about 3 years ago (has it been that long, really?), flanked by 3 Christmas trees in varying sizes and candles.
The wine glasses are by Mikasa and the small Bohemian flutes are from Ebay.

Snowman hitched a ride on Santa's sleigh (salt and pepper shaker) and as to be expected, 2 big guys can be cramped in a sleigh, lol.
The white and blue table runner has more snowmen.

Do you like my chair covers (2 santas and 2 snowmen)? I bought them from another booth in the store where my booth used to be. They were so cheap, can't remember exactly remember how much though but something like $8 for all of them. That's what I miss most  about having the booth, shopping from the others, lol.

Snowmen napkin rings, deep blue napkins, blue San Remo flatware from Horchow. I like this flatware pattern very much and I have them in black and red also.
 I thought the tin white lace plate charger works well here.
The salad plate has 1 snowman and look at the Christmas trees, it matches what I have on the centerpiece. I did not even notice until now.

 The dinner plate has 2 snowmen on it.
 A little snowman hot chocolate cup and some tea light candles make the table cozy, in spite of all the snow.

 I love the blue light of the pool in the background. Let's just pretend it's a blue light reflecting on a white snow, lol.
Do you see my big snowman peeking from the floor against the wall?
I really like snowmen. Here's another one on the kitchen island next to my fully bloomed Christmas cactus. He is a cookie jar and I also bought him from another booth when I still had mine. I think I was the #1 shopper there, but I was the #1 seller too.

Thank you very much for your visits and comments. I always appreciate them. I hope you are all enjoying the hustle and bustle of this holiday season.
I also thank the following hostesses even more for their hard work just so we can all have some fun.

Lovely! Your tablescapes are always full of creativity.

Hi Christine,

I love snowmen too, and agree with you that a nativity is a must.

You've got me GREEN with envy with all of your BLUE.

He he... this is really cute. Love the Sta & Snowmen in your chairs. Very festive, indeed.

I like snowmen too, they can stay out all winter. I love the way the blues mixed so well with the red and green. The pool in the background looks pretty too! Love the chair covers.

Hi, Christine...your snowmen are adorable. The table for two is just about perfect. :))

bj said...

OOO, meant to say that I see those fast growing little triplets in your header...sooo cute...the whole family.

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

Christine, I love your fun table for two. I really like how you picked up on the blue in the dishes and used your blue flatware, glasses and other accents. Those seat covers are adorable.

Sonia said...

Your table is so cute! Love the snowman plates :)

Alycia Nichols said...

Those chair covers are the hot diggity best!!! Wow! I'll bet you really, really do miss being there with all the other sellers. You could always get a good look at what all they had early on. It's a little tougher when you're not there side by side on a daily basis. I like snowmen, too. They're just fun and sometimes a little bit sophisticated in their jaunty top hats! I used them for a couple of tablescapes this winter. They provide a lot of inspiration to work from! Great choice in charger, and I love the photo of the hot chocolate cup with that candle. Very nice!

Elaine said...

Your table is so cute! I love your adorable wooden snowman, and the touches of blue are a welcome change from the usual green. Great chair covers, too!!!

Adorable and so cozy Christine! I would anything to be there for cookies and a cup of coffee with you, of course in this sweet C'mas table. I love snowman's and I don't have any left, the girls took the two I had! Such fun. I'm finally here blogging after two weeks..I had so much to do, I will let you know soon.

It's so very adorable, Christine! I have a snowman collection, too, and have that as my kitchen theme. You have some adorable pieces.

Christine, this is a sweet table. The snowmen plates are adorable and the chair covers so whimsical.

Oh goodness, my mother in law would love sitting at your table Christine! She loves snowmen. She says they are always happy :-) At least until the melting sun of Spring anyway lol! Everything is just so fun and light on your table. I love it!
