2 Table Settings for the Holidays

Blue & White

These ladies are my favorite candle sticks.
They were given to me on a birthday.
I have never seen others like them.
 Don't they have the sweetest faces.

I used these lovely wine bottle jackets as a napkin holder.
You can use anything you have.

Tiny gifts!
 Always a sure bet + an ice breaker at each person's plate. 

Salt and pepper at each place.

You don't have to have flowers!
I often use greenery from around my home.
Anything that will hold water can be used as a vase/container.

Candlelight flatters everyone!

Chinese baby shoes were also a gift to me. 
I adore them.

I love to use different glasses on the table.
Always have red & white wine + red & white glasses on the table.
You can never guess what someone prefers.

Blue & White

Another setting for a dinner party using antlers.

Grandmother, Ruby, made this tablecloth. 
It is so beautiful.  Aren't I lucky?

I like to mix china pieces & silver together.

I keep a bag of moss handy for those times when I need something.

Candle light never fails to make one look divine. 

Those antlers are a treasure. 

The BIG napkins have monogrammed numbers! 

Look at the puppets that hang in my dining room. That's for another post...

And above it all, a chandelier brings light.
You bring the love & joy!

Happy table settings, dear readers!

Just remember,
 make it simple and be the wonderfully creative beings you all are.
Others will adore you for it.
