I set the table in front of the fireplace in the kitchen.
I started with a snowflake placemat I found at Big Lots in Florida. I do not know why this came out sideways even though the picture I uploaded it from is not.
The same thing with this, also sideways and I could not correct it. Does anybody know how to correct it? Again the original is fine but it uploads this way. Anyway, I found this plate charger last year, again from Ebay. I think they were made in Portugal. There were only 7 and I wish I could find an 8th one.
The dinner plates do not match the salad plates. I bought them from a thrift store about 2 weeks ago, $9 for 6 of them. I think the snowflakes around the edge look good peeking through the reindeer salad plates, which you will see on the next picture.
I also bought these reindeer salad plates from the same thrift store, really cheap, $6 for all 8 of them. Here's Vixen!
White Mud Pie snowflake goblets from Ebay ($38 for 12 of them, free shipping) and etched glasses I bought from an estate sale for $6/6.
The flatware are silver plated but I cannot remember the pattern name. I got them from Horchow some time ago. They are very heavy and I am always very careful not to drop them on the dishes, afraid of breaking the plates.
And here is a complete place seetting.
I bought the napkins from an antique shop in Seattle while shopping with Vanna.
Snowmen S & P shakers.
My centerpiece consists of 2 white reindeers, with bows tied around their necks and a reindeer votive candle holder placed inside a cloche. I added holly berries both inside the cloche and on the lazy Susan and swirled a tartan ribbon around. Then I added mercury tea light candle holders all around.
Here's Comet. I did not even realize that the salad plates are all different until I saw the pictures. Otherwise, I would have taken a close up of each one of them.
I also placed 2 girly reindeers (could they be called reindoes? lol!)
Isn't this very glamorous one a cutie? There are 2 of them and I found them at TJ Maxx last weekend for $1.99 each. This one's probably Rudolph's girlfriend, lol.
