Christmas Table--Two Ways
The first way is a little more classic. The tablecloth is a vintage cloth with Poinsettias.
The Christmas tree napkin holders are one of my favorite things about the table. I think they are ceramic and so cute! I got them at an antique store, but I don't think they are antique.
On each plate is a handmade paper ornament. They are made by a Missouri artist by the name of Kevin Kloppenburg. His work is sold at a store called Stuff in Kansas City, Missouri.
I didn't have poinsettias for the floral arrangement, so I just used tulips with some winter greens. I think it works!
The second table is more whimsical than the first. Notice the little mouse bell. I think that is a mouse from the Nutcracker.
The small plates each have a different ornament design.
The wire trees were found at an antique store for just a few dollars. They are not antiques, but they were a bargain, and I love a bargain.
I discovered the table runner at a thrift store. Why would anyone get rid of that? It was even pressed!
The ornament placecard/napkin holders were a gift from my friend, Monica. I thought she would get a kick out of the table setting with our names. I told her the table was ready for our dinner party!
The poinsettia glasses were another antique store purchase--at 50 cents apiece. Can't beat that! They are very swanky.
The flatware is from Tuesday Morning.
The red stripe bowl is Fiesta. It is exclusive to Homer Laughlin China Collectors Association members.
Fiesta water pitcher in scarlet--the perfect holiday red.
Merry Christmas. Hope you enjoyed tables two ways.
