Getting Ready For Christmas Tablescape

Christmas is quickly approaching and, naturally, Santa and his elves are hard at work making toys and other gifts to give on Christmas day. So, with that in mind, Pat designed the table this week to celebrate all of Santa's hard work.
Pat used mixed patterns for the dinner and the salad plate but kept the red and white theme.
The centerpiece is a "busy" assortment of Santa and his elves 

Flatware is "Primary" by Noritake
The salad plate is "Peppermint Santa" by Certified International
We found these dinner plates on the after Christmas sale shelf at Pier 1 several years ago
Another Pier 1 purchase - I love these chargers but not a favorite of Pat's

Santa's elves from left to right: Clifford, Reggie, Thadious, Vince, and Sherman. I fell in love with these adorable l guys when I saw my first one at the Cancer Society's Discovery Thrift Shop years ago and had to have it. Of course, it was only $10. Such a bargain....Never, ever, ever found one less than $70 after that.......
This is Sherman
Reggie is painting the Christmas pole

  1. I LOVE this tablescape! I think the peppermint/candy theme is one of my very favorites, and the elves and Santa just add extra charm to it. Those swirly goblets, too! As with all your tables, it's just wonderful. Enjoy the season!

  2. This is such a fun and festive table! I especially love the striped plates and the pretty swirled glasses. The Santa plates are so jolly.

  3. Everyone agrees this setting is fabulous fun & festive!! It's unanimous 😃
    Merry Christmas to all
