Christmas Party


Pat and her husband had a small Christmas party for Jim's service organization last night, and of course, Pat prepared a great meal and set the tables to match. The theme this year was "Santa Claus is coming to town," and she managed to even surprise me with one of the tables. While the entire house had Santas everywhere, it was the kitchen table that was everyone's favorite. See what you think.

Brown Clarion glassware is from Lenox


Pat use Treble Clef flatware to add an authentic cowboy look with its rustic handles
The first layer was a wicker place mat from Pier 1
Pat added a brown charger
One of four different patterns of the dinner plate
The bread and butter plate is actually Fiestaware by Homer Laughlin but looks perfect

On to the red tables........
