International Christmas Table

This week's theme gives Pat the opportunity to show the bargain dinnerware she recently found at a local animal rescue thrift shop. She couldn't pass it up......

The table centerpiece theme is "Santas of the World"

I asked Pat to leave the price tag on so I could show how much she paid......

Pat used two chargers - this one is a white Fiesta(ware) chop plate

We found these chargers at Tuesday Morning last year

To add to the Christmas theme and color, Pat used inexpensive snowflake ornaments as coasters

 Where it came from:
Antique Gold Chargers - from Tuesday Morning last year
Dinnerware - "Thurston" by Noritake from Miranda's Rescue Thrift Store (a local thrift store that supports a local animal rescue)
Flatware - Green "Sofia" by Hampton Forge from Tuesday Morning several years ago
Glassware - from Pier 1 four or five years ago
Napkin Rings - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond two years ago
Gold Glittered Snowflakes - from the Dollar Tree
Santas - from our collection
Globe - from TJMaxx last year

French Santa

Scottish Santa

A Shameless Plug:  Please join us on our other tablescaping blog, "Table for One," designed for the person eating alone:  Here.  And during the first 25 days of December, we set a different table everyday featuring some of our Santa Claus collection and assorted dinnerware.


  1. Wow, great tables! Can't believe that lovely china so cheap!!
    The Santas are adorable and elegant.

  2. That Noritake is fantastic! Very versatile. Of course with your styling, it becomes magical.
