Welcome to my
for Christmas this year.
My darling daughter in law gave me
these fabulous angel wings last year
and I did a tablescape with them
tied onto the kitchen table
But this year we moved into the dining room
and I used a tack to attach them to
these beautiful brocade slipper chairs.
I also added a little bling
to the wings by pinning
a brooch on them.
(From my favorite -Fabulousbrooch.com)
Everything is silver and cream,
one of my personal favorite combinations
for a dressy table.
The placecards are tucked into
another set of tiny angel wings that
I found at Pier 1 this year.
You know those literally leaped into
I used two kinds of coordinating
silver printed napkins.
I printed the names on cardstock in
a dark gray for the placecards
and then spayed Glitter Blast
on the cardstock. After the paint
was dry, I cut them to size.
I would love to tell you the name of
this font, but it is so small I can't read
it - starts with an A! Sorry
I took my square plates and
turned them each on an angle to get
a fun and different look out of them.
Of course the Horchow
silverplate has to come out of the
chest for this table.
(Some of you have asked about
this but it has been discontinued - sorry!)
I love using these silverplate goblets
that I bought years ago from Spiegel
Catalog because even the kids
can use them without any worry.
Fortunately I was wise enough to
choose 24 all those years ago.
I had to let the beauty of the wood
show with this tablescape.
Fresh flowers and silvery
presents and candles on another
glittering placemat create
the perfect centerpiece.
It feel really special to have fresh flowers
during the cold of winter.
Everything is creamy white.
I placed them in this mini bottle cooler
with stag heads on each side. This is
the perfect sized container for all kinds
of things - flowers, chocolates, candy, etc.
The flowers were just show-offs!
A little snow in the bottom of
this apothecary and a sparkling
candle and it changes dramatically.
These little gift boxes have
been all over the house this year.
I don't know if I will ever give them
away as gift boxes as I like them so much!
I have to tell you a darling story
about this daughter - Jessica - after
coming to my tablescaping class at
Gatehouse No1 this year, she decided
she too could easily do a tablescape
and she has had her table all decked
out all season long! I loved it.
I hope your Christmas plans are coming
right along. Ours got derailed with sickness
and hubby having kidney stone surgery, but
I think we are back together - cross your fingers!!
Thanks for taking a peek over
the shoulder of my angel!
I hope your Christmas is filled with
the magic of God's gift to the world,
His Only Begotten Son,
and you feel of His love this Christmas season!
And may you feel the presence of
Angels among us all year long.
