Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen is having a A PINTERESTING CHRISTMAS TABLE challenge. I have a hard time finding a picture of what I wanted to do but finally settled on the table below.
This is my version.
Below is the picture from Pinterest that I copied from the account of The Adventures of Tartanscot and you can see it on his blog here.
I actually also have those Old Britain Castles Christmas tree plates but they are in our Cape Coral, FL home so I opted to use my Friendly Village transferware set.
Well, what do you think? Did I pass as a copycatter?
Now, it's time to show all the details. I started with laying placemats and table runners with cardinals and poinsettias. I know I have 8 placemats but somehow, I could not locate the 8th one. Does this ever happen to you, misplacing a part of a set? Anyway, good thing I have 4 table runners of the same pattern so I used 3 runners and 4 placemats for a place setting for 8. It worked!
I got to use my "Believe" plate chargers again, topped with Friendly Village dinner plates and alternating a round and square salad plates from the same set.
The champagne flutes are Micasa "Gemstones", which I paired with red Italian wine crystals.
The silver plated flatware are from Wm. Rodgers and sons but I cannot remember the pattern name. I like that they have not tarnished since I bought them about 3 years ago from Ebay.
The centerpiece was a pair of santas and lots of Christmas trees in various sizes.
I added 2 candles on each ends.
I added little village houses too. The one below is from Bernkastel, Germany.
Snowmen S & P shakers
I took 2 panoramic shots.
I placed my 3 Villeroy & Boch apple bakers on the buffet.
This bowl with Christmas balls was on the table before I set the tablescape and I moved it on a pedestal table near the window.
That was fun! I hope you join Cuisine Kathleen at www.cuisinekathleen.com/ and please check out the many links who joined the party. Thank you so much for stopping by and I appreciate the efforts of everyone hostessing these memes. I hope you are all enjoying this Christmas season.
