Fun Christmas Table Setting...and a Winner!

Vintage Table Decor...
I have always loved how Mary Engelbreit decorated tables for Christmas.  The picture on the left is from her 2002 book Here Comes Santa Claus.  I can't find the picture of the one I love most...but they are all so much fun!  I have the same glasses and plates she shows here.  I thought it would be fun to put together a table setting to honor ME.  I was amazed at what I had accumulated over the years.

A Closer View
I love the red-stripe Hazel Atlas tumblers.

The old spool is now a place-card holder.

Finally...a chance to display the darling napkins I found so long ago.

Gingerbread House Winner is... 

...Comment #12 Kris Thompson!  Yay, Kris!

I am so grateful for my life and the beautiful morning.
The oranges have faded to browns and many combinations of colors and textures to be found.
Have a Thankful Day.

WHAT?! I missed a give away? Where was I? Hmmm...

Oh, congrats to Kris. ;)

Love the tables! I've always admired a well dressed table but I never do them for some reason. I think it's because I have all boys and they could care less and they want LOTS of room for the food! ♥

This is just the sweetest little Christmas table I have ever seen. I expect little gingerbread men to come out dancing on the plates any minute! Wow!!!
I love it!

Hi Shirley!

I'm popping in to see what's new. I just love your table. I think it's cuter than the one in the book. I love the bright colors, and the spool placecard holders are a great idea. I wish I could find those tumblers somewhere. And of course you know how I am about polka dots!

I hope you're having a good weekend-
