Ski Santa Tablescape

Having no snow in our area for years (Eureka sits on the Pacific coast of California almost six hours north of San Francisco,) Pat took a leap of faith (or maybe wishful thinking?) and set the table this week with fun in the snow as the theme.
The table

Flatware is "Everyday" by Reed & Barton

I love these glasses - Olive Green "Diamond Point" by Indiana Glass Company

Pat used small snow sleds as part of the napkin ring/name tag.

Where it came from:

Lanterns, Small Napkin Ring Sleds, "Snow" - from Michael's
Large Centerpiece Sled - TJMaxx last year
Santas - from our collection

We will be joining the following Blog Parties this week:

"Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:


  1. This table is so simple but festive. Traditional red and green with always be my favorite color combination for Christmas. Some years I use similar "snow" as Christmas decor, but I have to say it is a nuisance to pick up (almost as bad as the hay you've used in the past). I have been reluctant to move on from fall to winter holiday decorating, mostly because our weather has been so mild, so keep the Christmas tables coming to encourage me to move on!

  2. Gorgeous table. Love the way you have combined the traditional colors in your plate stack. Love your centerpiece as well.

  3. I love the red and green on your table! The skiing Santas are so fun too!

  4. Wishful thinking must be contagious, my current table setting has a bit of snow in it, too. When I was going to Humboldt State we did have snow once, we were so excited we all drove down to the beach to see the snow on the sand.
    Thanks for sharing your wonderful tables with us!
