Candy Canes & Snowflakes

I set my table today in all red and white making quite 
a bright and cheerful table.

 My dinner plates are by Country Living and were 
purchased on clearance at Kmart this fall.

 The salad plates are from the Fancy Scroll Collection by 
Sweet Olive Designs and were purchased at Marshalls.

 I love the design and texture of the plates when
combined, which need nothing more to adorn them except 
simple candy canes and pretty napkins.

 The napkins I made from two fabrics, one side striped
to coordinate with the candy canes and the other side
with snowflakes so they can be used throughout the winter
and not just for Christmas.



The centerpiece is a glass hurricane globe with a mixture of
inexpensive solid, striped, and snowflake ornaments.


A cheerful table setting to last through the 
holidays and with just a few simple changes ~ all
the way to Valentine's Day.

 I'm linking with Between Naps on the Porch
for Tablescape Thursday.

I just keep going back to see what I missed.. Your table is fabulous. Those plates from marshall's are really neat. But mostly and mainly, your napkins. I love your napkins. the choice of fabrics, the meticulous corners, the fold-over from one side to the other.. perfect stitching!!! Thanks for visiting and leaving your sweet comment.

Oh, my goodness, I love every single element of your table! The textures of the dishes, the beautiful HANDMADE napkins, the ornaments piled high -- it's all wonderful together! You've even repeated the stripes in the napkins in some of the ornaments -- so visually appealing!
