Noritake and Santa Christmas Table

OK, it may be a "little" early for a Christmas table, we know, but Pat and I love this time of year. It's my favorite Holiday. So - with no apologies - we start our season of Christmas tables this week featuring a set of Noritake dinnerware that Pat found at the Discovery Shop (the Cancer Society's Thrift Store) for a steal.....

Mint green and gold - Pat kept the color simple. She started with a piece of gold satin for the centerpiece.

Very simple flatware - frosted "Kyoto Gold"

Pat didn't use the cup and saucer but I love the shape....

Pat is weaker than me when it comes to glassware. She spotted these at Pier 1 this year and they came home with her.

These brushed gold shell trees were perfect for this table. Pat found them at Tuesday Morning.

  1. Beautiful table, those shell trees are my fav. They are so unusual and pretty!

  2. I love the mint greens you chose for the table. Simple, but gorgeous!

  3. Oh, my, that china is GORGEOUS! Simple, elegant, and with the addition of the Santa in the mint green robe, a beautiful Christmas table.

  4. Oh, my, what an elegant table! I love how the dinnerware matches the Santa and all the exquisite gold accents. An unexpected Christmas table, and perfectly lovely. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch
