Tablescape Thursday: Merry Christmas!

My camera lens was borken last week, so this week you get two tablescapes for the price of one! this first tablescape is the one that I've got all set up and ready to go for Christmas day. I tried my hand at making a "Colonial Williamsburg" type centerpiece. I first saw this on Susan's blog last year.

I got the placemats at K-Mart last year on clearance...

I'm using gold chargers and my Spode Christmas Tree plates...

I used my treble clef flatware as this is the time to make a joyful noise unto the Lord...

Santa's eyeview...

This place is set for my son Nick...not St. Nick!

My small Dept. 56 Dickens Village collection...

The candyland tree in my dining room...

This is the tablescape I was going to post last week, but since I only got my new camera lens on Monday, I thought I'd post it this week...

The salad plates and tureen are by Portmeirion...

Rudolph's eyeview...

Please visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday, and have a Merry Christmas!


  1. Both tablescapes are wonderful. I loved the fancy Christmas dinner elegant.

    Merry Christmas!


  2. I love this table. The colors are pretty and everything goes together so good. You just can't go wrong with pineapples and apples. :)


  3. Both tables are beautiful! I've always loved the Spode Christmas dishes and yearned for them.

  4. Tammy, both are beautiful tables. I love that red stemware...and that tureen is gorgeous!

  5. I think your centerpiece turned out beautiful. I love how they used fruit back then. Your place card holders are adorable. Everything came together beautifully. You should be very proud of this table. It has a grand feel to it.

  6. I was so busy through the holidays that I didn't get around much in blog land. My decorations are still up, but I'm feeling a bit under the weather so it gives me the chance to wonder around and see all I missed.

    You did a great job on the Colonial centerpiece. I've often admired Susan's as well. I just treated myself to a set of Christmas Spode at an after Christmas special. Perhaps I'll try it with a similar centerpiece next year.

    I also like the other tablescape with the new Portmerion Christmas set. They had that in the same store where I got my Spode. Since I have so many other Christmas sets, I decided to go with the classic.

    Happy new year.
