In all honesty, we walked into the store after Christmas, and all of the left-over Christmas stuff was really, really on sale. Pat and I grabbed a cart and loaded it up. What fun!!!! By the time we finished, we managed to take home three carts full of "Christmas treasures".....
The inspiration - the arrangement covered most of the table.....and for only $2.00
I love this china - it's "Racine" (1900-1986) by Hutschenreuther.
From the other end of the table
Red Christmas Tablecloth - from Gottschalk's (a local Department store now out of business) years ago
Vintage Placemats - from Tailwaggers (a local thrift store run by the Sequoia Humane Society to fund animal rescues)
Dinnerware - "Racine" by Hutschenreuther from eBay and Replacements
Flatware - by Cambridge from Bed, Bath and Beyond years ago
