Seashell Christmas Table

The seaside, sand, and shells were the inspiration for this week's Christmas table. Pat used a Santa dressed in beautiful light blue velvet and white faux fur as the centerpiece and added fishing net, shells and white trees.
The table

Wooden chargers hold inexpensive blue coupe shaped dinnerware from Ross that match the color of Santa's coat

Flatware is "Image" by Spode

These driftwood chargers are perfect for a beach themed table

One of Pat's favorite glasses - from the Dollar Store

Shameless Self Promotion:  Pat and I are going to do our annual "Month Long Tablescape Celebration of Santa" this year on our other blog, Table For One (Here). We do it every year but do not always "publish" the results. We select a different Santa each day from our collection as the inspiration and set the table using different dishes, flatware, etc. We have lots of fun doing it and decided to share the results this year.


  1. Oh, wow, what a lovely table. A Santa dressed in aqua velvet would be perfect for celebrating in a tropical, seaside setting. After all, he has to visit those areas as well!! Like I told your sister, I look forward to your Christmas challenge pictures. What fun and what a treat for us, your followers!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  2. Lovely, lovely and how very tranquil. The whole look is perfect for a coastal Christmas.

  3. Very pretty, aqua is my very favorite color, and I think its so elegant paired with white and silver for the holidays

  4. I love the coastal theme in my favorite colors to decorate with!
