I trust most of you are done decorating, settled in and are relaxing by now. I'm also done so I thought I'd put together a tablescape.
I began with the plaid tablecloth that was from T.J. Maxx this year.
I tend to like things cozy and a relaxed for the kitchen nook area especially at Christmas!
I brought out these Holiday dishes that go with the Italian Countryside dishes that we use everyday. I usually mix them in with the everyday stuff through the month of December.
I chose the rattan chargers to keep the look relaxed.
There are four patterns and coffee mugs with matching floral designs on the inside.
The centerpiece is a compilation of a cake stand turned upside down, dressed with red beads, topped with a creamy white charger and a cloche containing a small sleigh with ornaments and snow. The gold twine balls were added to form a wreath.
(The charger used to be an odd color of green that I never liked so I changed it to Rust-Oleum Heirloom White)
The charger can be lifted off and the cake stand turned over and can act as a platter holder for breakfast, brunch or lunch!
So much glare makes it nearly impossible to take a good picture. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch recently showed these cute little sleigh ornaments from Walmart at this "post". I went to our store to get some but they were in sad shape. I only bought one but it ended up working well inside this cloche.
Up above I decorated the chandelier as I do every year but with new burlap accents.
The little bells were from Walmart and the ornaments from T.J.Maxx
I rested the burlap ribbon up on it's side to show the Merry Christmas and added some undulation.
I'm trying not to show you the whole area because I haven't done a post on the decorating I've done in this area....that will be next!
I'll be joining
