My tablescape today is again with my old faithful
Phaltzgraff dishes ~ only this time ~ they are my Christmas
dishes that I have had for over 25 years. Once again, they
were purchased as seconds at the Phaltzgraff outlet in Lancaster, PA.
I'm sure you've all seen them before. They are the old
"Heritage" pattern that were sold from 1981 ~ 2006.
I added red salad plates to give them a little punch of color.
The glasses I've had as long as the dishes.
But the napkins and napkin holders are new this year ~
recently purchased from Goodwill.
The centerpiece I made last Christmas and is a simple
wreath with red berry picks and pine cones added in for color
and texture. It surrounds a glass globe with a red candle
set amidst artificial decorative snow.
Having had these dishes for 25 years, I had grown a little tired of them
and hadn't even bothered to get them out the last few years.
But I'm amazed at the difference the red napkins,
salad plates, and red candle centerpiece made to brighten
the table and make it look festive and suddenly new again.
Now I just need to invite someone over for dinner.
