Christmas Centerpiece Copycat

Kathleen of Let's Dish is having a challenge for us to look for a picture, copy it and then show our version for our tablescape for Dec. 11. I found mine in an old Christmas book of Southern Living at Home. Here is the photo of a centerpiece.

Here is my version. I do not have a plain white tiered tray so I used one that looks like a pewter. My friend Debjani gifted it to me, I think 2 or 3 Christmases ago. Thanks, Deb! I still love it!

By the time this posts, I won't be here anymore but enjoying some time with the kids and grandkids in FL but this is what's on the breakfast nook in the kitchen for John to enjoy while I am gone.

 My glassware consists of Pfaltzgraff's Winterberry footed and old fashioned glasses and onyx wine glasses. We bought the onyx wine glass from the French flea market in New Orleans and I have had the Winterberry glass for sometime now.

 I chose to use our hammered flatware because they seem to sparkle and I always associate Christmas with sparkles.

Another wonderful gift from a friend, Brenda, from a past  Christmas, is this Winterberry deviled egg server. Thanks, Brenda!

 My plate chargers are ceramic with the word "Believe" and a snowflake inscribed on them.
 Next comes the dining plate given by another friend, Maribel. Ain't I so lucky to have so many friends feeding my obsession? LOL!
 Instead of using the matching salad plates, I thought I would mix them with my Winterberry dessert plates. I have salad plates too but I could not find them. And I thought I was pretty organized, lol. I must be getting old. I found the box but it is empty so I must have stored the plates somewhere else. I used them last year.

A tea for one Winterberry tea pot and cup combo.

There you are, do I have a good copy? Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you and your families are enjoying this Christmas season.

Christine, I love your copy cat centerpiece and the wonderful photos and how you mimicked with the tiered plates. Your layers of plates are very wonderful to mix and match. I giggled when I read the statement about searching for your salads and I have done the same but wasn't brave enough to admit it. Your tablescape is so lovely and great for your husband. Have fun in FL.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Christine, I like yours BETTER!

Great job on that.



Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Hi Christine,
I like your centerpiece much better! Your tablescape is really pretty and festive. I'm sure your hubby will enjoy it. Thank you for sharing this at Tea Time and enjoy the time with your family in Florida.

Christmas blessings,

Christine, I agree, your copycat centerpiece is prettier than the original. I love the tiers and the packages - all just so cute! Your table is fabulous, I read the post when your friend gave you the dishes, I bet she is as proud as a peacock to see how beautifully you have displayed them. I will have to bookmark this tablescape so I can come back and refer to it when I do my copycat table (I am seriously thinking of copying yours) I mean it is just so pretty. Your plates are so similar to the Royal Hunt plates from Noritake that I have. But alas, I do not have anything to compare with your chargers. :( Maybe I better pick something easier. A really fantastic job!!!

Hello Christine, what a wonderful interpretation of that picture! You did a fabulous job creating your own centerpiece and tablescape. I actually love yours more! The pewter tiered tray was a great choice, the cutlery complements it well. And all your festive table ware looks perfect. John is lucky : )
Enjoy your visit with your family in Florida.

Kathleen said...

Love this, CHristine, so cheerful and colorful. Great mix on the plates, and the centerpiece is great! Good copy, for sure!
Thanks so much for taking the challenge at Let's dish!

Bonnie said...

Great job Christine. I love your china patterns mixed. They are so pretty. Your table is very festive with so many great touches from your friends. Your centerpiece is eye catching and meet the challenge.

Have a wonderful time with the grandkids. Merry Merry Christmas.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Your copycat is gorgeous. Love the tiered tray and all the presents on it. I love Winterberry and have many pieces of it myself. Great Job!

Lulu said...

Love the centerpiece and your table is, as always, perfectly done with such attention to detail.

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Christine, I love the idea of the tiered present centerpiece and your entire table is so pretty and happy!! I have "lost" dishes too, only to find them when I'm looking for others! Hope you are enjoying your time with your family. Linda

Diane said...

Yes, Christine! You have a great copy and this whole table is one of my very favorites that you have done! I have an inventory list in my computer, which has a place for "location" of all of the pieces that I own. The problem is that I keep moving things around and forgetting to update the list - ugh!! Have fun in Florida. I just returned and did not have time to do Kathleen's challenge!!

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

I like your copycat centerpiece even more than the inspiration picture, Christine. Your table is so festive and holds so many treasured gifts from dear friends.

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

I like your inspiration photo and how you created your centerpiece from it. Your's is much nicer! Love all your dishes, stemware and silverware- beautiful!

Anonymous said...

Yes, you have a great copy! Love that centerpiece...better than the original.


Your copy cat is much more beautiful tan the one in the magazine dear Chris! I love the two tier with all the gifts and the mix of lovely C'mas plates is awesome!!! Merry C'mas.
