Joy, Joy, Joy

It officially December...
time to listen to Christmas tunes
time to decorate the house
and time to whip out some Christmas Tablescapes!


Today I am going traditional with Red, Green and White!

I started with my silver chargers...


Added my Green metal plates...
(these are clearance from Pottery Barn, many years ago)


Added my white salad plates...
(these are Pfaltzgraff open stock I bought at Old Time Pottery Barn)

The place setting on each end of the table received a layer of Red salad plates, next.
I would have put one at every setting if I owned more than two!


I then added fun red paper napkins...
(These my Mom brought back for me from a trip to Asia.)


I topped it off  with these fun dessert plates.
(I do believe these are from Target, I received them a few years back as a gift.)


The silverware is a Mikasa pattern that we picked for our wedding registry.


The stemware was a gift from my sister,
and the blue Target glasses add a little sparkle!



May your evening sparkle and shine!


A little snowman to make one smile!




The feather tree is one that I made from a Styrofoam cone
and craft feathers.  I posted about this on Sunday!


Antique Christmas bulbs, hanging from the chandelier.


And ...
Who sees you when your sleeping,
knows when your awake,
knows if if been bad or good...
so be good for goodness sake?


Why... Santa of course!


This week I want to wish each one of you JOY!

Thank you for visiting with me today.

I love the way you tell a story when you post these. I also love those little dessert plates and that white Santa! I've had homes where I could decorate the chandelier, the new one I put up here would be a bit tricky. I miss that, it looks so cool the way you did yours.

Thank you for always saying such sweet things on my posts...it means so much.

Your table is sooooooooo beautiful. I love the placesetting and all of the dishes that you've used. They are so pretty together. Your centerpiece is lovely and you've also decorated the chandelier beautifully. Great inspiration. Also I hope you will be joining us for the "Holiday Cloche Party". I will have Mr. Linky up tonight. See you then. Hugs, Marty
